What happens after I have applied?

The time period Bendigo Bank takes to asses applications can vary from one application to the next, depending on the requirement of additional information. It the bank requires any more information you can expect a bank representative to contact you. An income verification call going to your employer is normal, and once approved, you would have to complete a legally mandated identity check. After this, allow between five to 10 business days to get your new card.

Bendigo Bank, through its multiple credit card offerings, has something for just about everyone. Don’t forget, though, that other cards on the market offer similar features, so you’ll need to compare your options before applying.

    Hi im on single parenting payments with family tax benefits part A & part B totalling $1490p/f that’s about nearly $36000p/a with expenses of $1880 monthly am I eligible to make a loan for a house as a first home buyer using my regular pension and my family tax benefit as my proof of income to approve a loan?

    I have read online that Bendigo Bank generally accepts centerlink benefits as a source of income on a case by case basis, how much is the interest rate for personal or home loans?

    I would like to borrow about %150,000-$200,000 as a first home buyers loan for a home which is 15km from Scottsdale north east Tasmania in south springfield its a rural 3 bedroom home on a 1080metre squared block of level land.

      Hi Suzanne,

      Thanks for your inquiry,

      Credit card applications have minimum income requirements which vary from lender to lender, for a list of lenders that accept centrelink as a form of income please see this page. Please note that lenders have individual lending policies. Each lender will need to assess your financial and personal situation to be able to advise on your options and eligibility.

      I hope this helps!

      Hi Tina,

      Thanks for your question,

      We are actually a financial-products comparison service so unfortunately we do not provide personal loans on-site. However personal loans are available with Bendigo Bank, with more information in regards to the types of loans available and the application criteria on this page.

      I hope this has helped.

    I need help. I’m on the pension, I earn a steady income and, I keep getting, ‘sorry but cant help u at this time’ from the banks. Is there a place I can get a credit card from that will be glad to help me.

      Hi Peter.

      Thanks for your question.

      You may want to have a look at our low rate credit card comparison page. Click on the card name to read a review of the card. If you would like to compare more than one card, please click on the check box to the left of the card name, and then click compare at the top or bottom of the table. This will let you compare a number of cards in a side by side comparison. Look for the minimum income requirement for each card. This will let you know how much you need to be earning before you can apply for a card. The pension is considered a form of income.

      I hope this helps.

    Do you get flyer points on a visa debit card or just on credit cards? Thanks.

    • Staff
      Jacob | October 31, 2013

      Hi Aaron.

      Generally it’s just credit cards that earn rewards and frequent flyer points. But there are debit cards that do come with extra features like purchase protection and extended warranty insurance. You can read more about this here.

      Thanks for your question.
