Will I be approved?
All our loans are subject to manual credit and affordability checks. Your application is more likely to be approved if:
You can comfortably afford the repayments alongside your existing financial committments
You have not engaged in risky behaviours (such as heavy gambling), which could call into question your ability to repay.
What you’ll need
A copy of your most recent payslip
Details of your income and monthly outgoings (and those of you partner or spouse if applicable)
Your National Insurance number
Your Service Expiry Date (downloaded from JPA)
Unlike many lenders, all loan applications are considered by a real person. The outcome of your application will be based on careful consideration of all the relevant facts, not just an automated score.
Offer & Agreement
The online application will take roughly 15 minutes. As part of the process, we will ask for some information about your address history, your career, and your current household income & expenditure.
We’ll also ask you for copies of your recent bank statements and confirmation of the date you are due to leave the armed forces. It will speed things up if you have these ready, but if not, don’t worry—we will email you with a link to upload them later.
After we receive your application, our team will look through all the information you have provided to decide if we can offer you a loan.
As part of this, we will check your bank statements to make sure that the repayments are affordable—this is to protect us both, by making sure we only lend you what you can comfortably afford to repay.
This process should take 7-10 days, and we’ll send you daily text updates so you know what’s going on, and in case we have any questions.
Offer & Agreement
Once our Loan Team have made a decision, we’ll let you know by email, letting you know how much we can offer you, the interest rate, and the amount you’ll repay each month.
Often, we’ll be able to offer you the full amount you applied for, but sometimes, it may be less. If you are happy to accept our offer, we’ll email you with a digital copy of your Loan Agreement, for you to read and sign.
The best part! Once you return the Loan Agreement, the loaned funds will arrive into your account in 36 hours.
We will take care of the rest, and arrange with the Ministry of Defence for your agreed repayments to be deducted from your pay each month. You will see this listed on your payslip, alongside tax, student loan, and any other deductions you may have.
