A personal loan is often used to consolidate debts into a single repayment or pay for expenses like holidays, weddings and cars that would be difficult to pay off within the interest free period on a credit card.
Unlike a mortgage, our personal loans are “unsecured” which means you don’t need to provide a deposit or collateral (like your home or car).
Unsecured loans are also paid off over a shorter period (2 – 5 years), so you can get to your goal of paying the debt off sooner.
If you’re thinking of applying for a personal loan from SocietyOne, there are a few key criteria that you’ll need to meet to be eligible.
Not only do you need to be at least 21 years of age, but you must also be an Australian citizen or a permanent resident of Australia.
You must also earn more than $30,000 per annum, with Centrelink considered to be a supplementary form of income.
In everyone’s best interests, it’s important that you have a good credit score and be planning to use the loan, if your application is successful, primarily for your own personal use.

Our personal loans range from $5,000 to $50,000 with flexible loan terms of 2, 3 or 5 years. We suggest borrowing an amount that best suits your situation, making sure you will be comfortable paying off each instalment.
We offer 2, 3 and 5 year loan terms. You also have the freedom to pay out your loan early in full or make additional lump sum payments during the life of your loan with no extra fees or penalties.
Repayments can be made in either fortnightly or monthly instalments by direct debit. Personal loan repayments are calculated depending on your choice of 2, 3 or 5 year loan terms, and whether you have chosen fortnightly or monthly repayments along with the interest rate you receive on approval of your loan.
Once you're approved the funds will be transferred to your bank account, usually within 24 hours.
