Nimble Loans for Funeral Expenses

Sometimes, you can’t plan for when the worst happens.

In an ideal world, we would all have our funerals planned and paid for, but for many people, it never happens. If the worst should happen to a family member, you might be considering loans for funeral expenses – and Nimble can help.

Since 2005 we have been finding ways to ensure that people who need access to quick loans can get them, quickly and easily. We know that it can be a trying time, and worrying about finances is the last thing that you should be doing.

Nimble has made the process easy – completely online, with no need to speak to a person throughout the application – and with a favourable decision, you could have the personal loan for a funeral available to you in as little as 60 minutes* once confirmed. Getting funeral loans online is often easier for grieving families because you can complete the application in your own time, and from the comfort of your own home.

Nimble Funeral Loans in Australia

We offer a range of different options for loans, including Personal Loans from $2,050 - $5,000 and Small Loans for up to $2,000. In the case of loans for funeral expenses, you may find that the cash loan offers the right amount of money.

To be eligible for an online loan from us, you need to be an Australian citizen or permanent resident, over 18, employed and earning at least $50,000 a year before tax, and not been bankrupt in the last five years ( from date of discharge – not declaration). If you meet these requirements, we welcome you to apply for one of our quick loans for funeral expenses.

Funerals in Australia can be a costly process for any family. Finding this amount of money quickly when you haven’t planned for it could mean that your loved one cannot have the funeral they would have wanted – but that is something that we can help with.

Getting the right amount in an emergency funeral loan from Nimble will help alleviate the pressure of getting it right on the day, leaving you free to plan an appropriate celebration for your loved one’s life.
