Am I Eligible For a Pensioner Car Loan?

Your pension counts as a source of income, so the amount you receive can contribute to making loan repayments on a car loan. At Money3, we believe in giving everyone a fair go at securing car finance and will look at your financial situation in its entirety.

Even if you have a poor credit history or have had difficulty making loan repayments in the past, we will still consider your loan application for car finance1. Apply today to start the application process and for loan pre-approval and secure your new or used car.

Which Pensioner Types Are Accepted?

Getting your loan approved1 on a pension may be easier than you think with Money3. As long as you meet our basic criteria, and we are happy that the loan is suitable and affordable for you, then we will work with you to get your car (or another vehicle) loan approved as soon as possible.

Some of the pension types we will consider include1:

  • Aged Pension
  • Disability Support Pension

How It Works

Applying for a car loan with Money3 is a transparent and straightforward process. We'd like to see you driving away with your new car as soon as possible, and we'll happily consider your loan application even if you're on an aged pension, disability support pension, have a bad credit history, or have other circumstances that might cause other lenders not to lend to you.

If you already have a car or other vehicle in mind or are looking to get pre-approved, so you know how much you could borrow first, we'd like to help. With pre-approval for a car loan in hand, you can shop with confidence, knowing what type of vehicle you can afford.

Your loan pre-approval offer is subject to final approval once you have found your new vehicle. If you are on a pension, as long as your income totals $2,0801 a month or more, that you are an Australian resident, then you are likely to qualify1.

You must:

  • Be Over 18 Years Old
  • Have Take Home Income or Benefits over $480 a Week1
  • Be an Australian Resident
  • Get Your Income Paid into Your Bank Account
  • Be Employed or Receiving Centrelink payments1

Get started by completing the short form above. Tell us a little about yourself, and we'll take it from there, and we can give you a call back, or you can continue your application, giving us all the information we need to assess your loan pre-approval.
