About the Pension Loans Scheme

You can apply for a non-taxable loan if you need extra income or help for a short time or an indefinite period.

There is no lump sum.

If we grant your application, we’ll pay the loan to you fortnightly. You can choose the amount of the fortnightly loan, up to the maximum rate of pension.

If you already get the maximum rate of pension we cannot make any loan payments to you.

You can request us to stop your loan payments any time.
