Nimble – Payday Loans for Pensioners

At Nimble, we only lend to pensioners who are eligible. This includes those who are working and earning a majority of their income from working. We require active employment for this type of loan and we don't lend to self funded retirees.

With that in mind, we are here and ready to help when financial emergencies arise. With the best financial planning and budgeting, urgent and unexpected costs can still arise – and it might be a good idea to investigate payday loans for pensioners to help bridge the gap.

Nimble has reimagined the easy small loan landscape since our inception in 2005 – and that has included researching and developing the very best in smart technology to make it simple, quick and hassle-free to get access to the funds you need, when you need them. We wanted to make it straightforward and stress-free – so if you are in a situation when you need cash fast, for an unexpected vet bill, a car repair (we offer online car repair loans made just for this), or just about anything else, you could get the help that you need with Nimble.

Don’t just take our word for it, we have now funded over 1.6 million loans for all sorts of purposes – unexpected bills, home renovations and upgrades, holidays, car purchases… the list is endless. Our customers come back to us for all their quick cash needs because we make it easy, quick and hassle-free. Nimble by name, and nimble by nature.

As a household name in short term loans, we are ready to help you get the online pensioner payday loan that you need.

What Pensioner Payday Loans are Available from Nimble?

Although we have 4 main types of fast online cash loans available (please see the Comparison Table for more information), the amounts offered in our Small Cash Loan and Medium Cash Loan are often the most popular as payday loans for pensioners and employed people alike. To understand a bit more about the loan types on offer, we have a snippet of information about each below to help you decide which one is most appropriate for you.

For a Small Cash Loan, you can borrow an amount between $300 - $2,000. This can be paid back over a period of 62 days to 9 months, depending on circumstances. We charge an establishment fee of 20% of the amount borrowed and a monthly fee of 4% of the amount borrowed. All this will be laid out in your contractual documents so you will know exactly how much you are paying back and for how long.

If you need a little bit more, then a Medium Cash Loan might be the best online pensioner payday loan for you. For amounts between $2,050 and $5,000, the payment terms are extended to between 62 days and 22 months and there is an establishment fee of $400. The interest rate on this is 47.6158% APR depending on circumstances.

As with all loans, the payday loans for pensioners do have some prerequisites regarding affordability – we can work with those who have not got a perfect credit history, or who have different financial circumstances – but the only way to understand how it would work for you is to apply.
