Personal Loan This unsecured loan is similar to a more traditional bank loan but rather than having to go into the bank and speak to someone behind a desk you can apply 100% online using our loan matching service making it a much quicker experience. Typically with  personal loans you can borrow more over a longer period of time, for example they offer £2000 – $10000 over 2 – 5 years, so offer much more than payday loans.

Short Term Loans Short term loans are traditionally paid back on your next pay date which is why they are sometimes referred to as payday loans. However overtime these adapted into a more instalment loan type model, ie 3 – 6 months and loan amounts of $100 – $1000

Secured Loans : This type of loan is not really relevant for Centrelink customers but these are usually much larger loans that you secure to an asset like a car or your house to mitigate the risk for the lender.

No Interest Loan Scheme (NILS): These are community finance programs that Centrelink customers can also apply for and are a great option as no interest is charged.
