Pension Loans

Over 60? Save on everyday items with a senior card!

Before looking into pension loans, have you looked at all of the saving opportunities available to you? No? Well, let Nifty give you the run-down on Senior cards! When entering the twilight years of your life, finances become increasingly more important. This is especially true if your super balance is beginning to dwindle. Thankfully, older Australians have the ability to save on everyday necessities with the help of a senior card! 

Not familiar with a seniors card? Well, these cards allow holders to take advantage of unique discounts and saving opportunities. As long as you’re over 60 and are an Australian citizen or permanent resident, you could be eligible to apply for a card in your state. Take a look at some of the ways you could be saving money.

  1. Government Concessions: In most states, senior card holders have access to reduced property rates, public transport, vehicle registration and water bills.
  1. Medical Expenses: For those who are battling certain health problems, you could save on some expenses with the use of a senior card. Cardholders can often receive concessions on medical aids (hearing and optical), dental treatments and necessary electricity consumption.
  1. Utility discounts: If you’re looking to save some $ on your utility bills, enquire with your provider about senior discounts. In some instances, senior card holders could receive up to 25% off their electricity and gas bills through participating providers.
  1. Shopping discounts: Senior Cardholders can take advantage of unique savings on food, clothes and entertainment from participating retailers. If you would like to look into this, most state governments provide a discount-finding service so you can locate which stores and which products offer senior discounts.
  1. Accommodation & travel discounts: If you’re retired and have caught the travel bug, you could look to leverage some discounts on flights, accommodation, cruises and holiday packages from participating retailers. 

Have you exhausted all other options and are looking for a reliable lender that will provide pension loans? Been rejected by numerous traditional lenders? You might have just struck gold because Nifty likes to shake things up a little. We won’t claim to approve every single loan, however, we will guarantee all applicants a fair go when it comes to a pension loan.

So, if you’ve been looking at applying for a personal loan for pensioners then Nifty could be the lender you’ve been searching for.

What Is A Pension Loan?

At Nifty, we understand that during a period of stress, money is the last thing you want to be worrying about. Nifty wants to make personal loans accessible to every Aussie so we don’t think a pension should have to stand in your way.
