In these tough economic times we have all become accustomed to stretching a dollar bill farther than is should probably reasonably ever be expected to stretch. Indeed, it’s been stretched so far that it’s in very real danger of snapping in half and taking out somebody’s eye. That said, we can all use some extra cash now and again to cover those annoyingly unexpected expenses.
Those who receive Centrelink assistance are well aware that while helpful, the payments are not always enough to keep ahead of the tidal wave of expenses that sometimes cascades across your bank account. As a recipient of Centrelink payments however, you may be wondering whether or not you would qualify for a loan to see you through that rough patch.
As with everything perhaps, that answer is one of those good news and bad news scenarios.
The Bad News…
Unfortunately, most appeals for a traditional loan are unlikely to yield an approval because most traditional lending agents, such as banks, requires the applicant to be gainfully employed with a well documented income stream prior to being granted a loan.
For those who are grumbling that if they had a job they wouldn’t need a loan, they would do well to remember the observation of American humorist Mark Twain, “A banker is a fellow who will loan you his umbrella when the sun is shining, but wants it back the minute it begins raining.”
Although his sage words are unlikely to keep your power turned on, they do serve to remind you that others have suffered in the same way you are now, and one should never underestimate misery’s desire for company. It’s also a great time to remember that traditional loans are not the only way to go to get the emergency cash that you need now.
The Good News…
Whilst scouting about for needed funds, it certainly behooves you to explore all of your non-traditional options prior to committing to going down to the blood bank to sell some pints of the good stuff for the cash you need.
If you are a resident of Australia, and currently receiving payments from Centrelink, you may well be eligible to receive small cash loans that can be used for whatever needs you may have from paying the power bill to putting food on the table to getting new tires for the car.
