Finding a loan while receiving Centrelink benefits can be difficult. If you’ve been searching for a personal loan on Centrelink,then we may be able to help. Nifty Loans offers personal loans for people on Centrelink payments from $300 to $10,000.
Centrelink, otherwise known as the Department of Human Services, is an Australian government program that delivers Commonwealth services to Australians. Their goal is to support those in need and, eventually, help them become self-sufficient.
Here at Nifty Loans, we consider most Centrelink payments as income. The different types of Centrelink payments that are accepted can vary from lender to lender. It’s essential to understand which payments you receive prior to applying for your loan.
There is no shortage of Centrelink payment types. Here are some of the most common benefits:
For a more detailed list, refer to the Services Australia website.
At Nifty Loans, we offer an array of loan types for people receiving Centrelink. If you’re receiving one of the following Centrelink payments then you are eligible to apply for one of our loans:
|Family Tax Benefit||✔|
|Disability Support Pension||✔|
|Farm Household Allowance||✔|
|Widow Allowance or Widow B pension||✔|
Unfortunately, we generally don’t accept applicants who receive either JobSeeker, Austudy, Abstudy or Youth Allowance as these are considered to be temporary sources of income.
Now that you know whether you are eligible for one of our Centrelink loans, let’s take a look at the loan types we offer. Applying for Centrelink can be an extremely frustrating and time-consuming process. Here at Nifty, we like to keep things simple with our 100% online, paperwork-free application that can be completed in minutes.
|Loan Type||Amount||Term (Months)|
|Small Loan||$300 – $2,000||6 – 9|
|Medium Loan||$2,100 – $4,600||9 – 24|
|Large Loan||$5,000 to $10,000||9 – 24|
If you receive Centrelink benefits, you may be eligible for an advance payment. What this means is that you could receive a portion of your payment early. You’ll then be required to pay it back later out of your payments. You can apply for a Centrelink advance at any time if you receive one of these payments:
If you have been receiving benefits for at least three months for these payments, you can also apply for an advance payment:
This should always be your first option when searching for a loan on Centrelink for many reasons, but most notably: these loans incur no interest and you can repay the advance out of your future Centrelink payments. For more information, visit the Department of Human Services.

Depending on what type of Centrelink income you receive, you could definitely qualify for a loan with Nifty. We accept most forms of Centrelink as a regular income; however, we do not accept JobSeeker, study allowances or Youth Allowance as they are considered temporary payments. We do accept Age Pension, Disability Pension, Family Tax Benefit and Carers Payment as income for a Centrelink loan.
You can borrow anywhere between $300 and $10,000. We offer three different loan types: small loans, medium loans and large loans. Depending on how much you apply for, loan terms will range between 6 and 24 months.
Worried about your credit score? Don’t stress – we can offer Centrelink loans to people with bad credit. We don’t believe your past should define your future. Why should a credit default from years ago stop you from receiving finance options today? While we cannot provide ‘no credit check loans,’ we will look at more than just your credit score. So, if you’re worried you will not be approved because of your credit score, rest assured that it will not be the determining factor of your application.
Just because you receive Centrelink doesn’t mean you shouldn’t borrow money for some financial flexibility. Here are just some of the reasons people take out personal loans:
– Taking a mini-break
– To buy a new or used car
– Tidy up some of those pesky bills
– Update your home decor
– Upgrade your bathroom or kitchen
– Emergency medical bills
