Loans for retirees: things to know
In the articulated financial offer, which banks and financial agencies offer to those who need to obtain a loan, there is a sector totally dedicated to loans for pensioners.
That pensioners, is a category in some privileged manner than others when it comes to getting a loan, since one of the first special features requested by financial institutions to access to credit, it is to be able to document a fixed income and sure.
The pension, like the salary of a permanent contract, is a good guarantee to propose to the bank or financial agency. Hence, if you are an social security retiree and you need to get a sum of money, you have better chances of accessing credit, even quickly.
Below, we will talk about some loan offers for retirees, which can be requested online. They are four proposals from four different financial agencies. Reading the various conditions proposed will help you better understand how to find, apply for and access a loan dedicated to retirees.
Normally, being a loan granted thanks to the formula of the transfer of the fifth of the pension, the only documents required are:
- Pension slip
- Valid identity card
- Fiscal Code
- Clash of the portion of the fifth transferable issued by social security
How to calculate the fifth cedibie
Let’s assume that a pension of 1,500 USD is received. To make a calculation of the assignment of the fifth, just do the following count:
|Net monthly pension||1,500 $|
|Monthly payments received in one year||x13|
|Net total received in a year||= 19.500 $|
|Divide the annual total x 12 months||÷ 12|
|Average monthly income||= 1,625|
|Divided 5||÷ 5|
|Share of the fifth transferable||= 325 $|
Obviously, if you get a loan of 10,000 USD, you will not pay installments of 325 USD, but much lower. The amount of the installments is in fact determined by various factors, the main two being: loan amount, number of months through which it is decided to repay the loan.
