StepUP Loan- Uniting Communities
The StepUP Loan is a safe, low interest loan between $800 and up to $3,000 for personal, domestic or household purposes such as fridges, washing machines, cars, computers, furniture, medical expenses and house repairs. A community worker helps you to fill out the paperwork to get the loan that is then assessed by NAB (National Australia Bank). Long term payments are set at what you can afford. Interest is charged at a low fixed rate. The loans can be repaid over three years. Loans can be held in joint names. No fees apply and loans are not for cash, holidays, bills or debt consolidation. A credit check is required.
StepUP loans are specifically for individuals or families holding a current Centrelink Health Care Card or Pension Card or Family Tax Benefit Part A. Applicants have lived at their current address for more than six months.
Step UP is offered in Uniting Communities Adelaide, Uniting Care at Gawler, UnitingCare Wesley Country SA and UnitingCare Wesley Bowden.
