Document Checklist

Different loans require different documents depending on your income source

The essentials (required to be uploaded with your application)

1. If you are receiving Centrelink benefits:

  • Your current Health Care or Pension Care Card,
  • Drivers Licence/Proof of Age Card
  • Current (time of applying) Statement of income from Centrelink. (This is obtained by contacting Centrelink and having your statement posted or emailed to you). Please copy both sides of the statement.

2. If you are wages only:

  • Drivers Licence/Proof of Age Card
  • Your last three payslips from any work.

3. Also for everyone (Centrelink and Wages)

  • Statements of any other loans or agreements that you still owe (e.g credit cards, reverse lay-buys, private loans, payday loans, rent to buy arrangements)
  • Proof of your address. This can be achieved by:
    • a copy of your rental/lease agreement (preferred), or
    • a signed, dated and verifiable (includes a phone number) letter from the primary lease holder of your shared place of residence which states that;
      • you are sharing,
      • how much you pay and owe (if any),
      • when did you start,
      • how much is your bond? Or
    • 3 months mortgage statements, and
      • most recent Electricity or Gas account.
      • most recent Telephone/Mobile phone account.

4. Quotes for your purchase

Please have quotes from the purchaser (that you are intending to buy from) ready-to-go with your application! Please note Foresters do not supply NILS loans for used goods.

 5. Bank Statements

We will send you a link to retrieve them (preferred, this is fast, safe and easy!) Or, upload the last (time of applying) 90 days bank account transactions.
