Step 3: Get an outcome in 30 mins!⁷
In most cases we'll let you know the outcome of your application within 30 minutes. If all looks good, you'll need to provide proof of income. Once we’ve verified your income + what you spend and owe, we'll send your loan contract electronically for review, acceptance and eSignature. Easy!
To be conditionally approved for an All Purpose Personal Loan, you’ll need to tick all the following boxes:
- A single borrower – no joint applications.
- A PAYG income.
- Permanent full-time or part-time employment.
- Employed at the same job for over six months.
- A good credit score.
- A loan purpose for anything except debt consolidation.
- No previous loan defaults.
- Incomings that cover what you spend and owe.
- Accurately enter all details about your spending and debt.
With a fixed rate, the interest rate stays the same for the entire length of your loan, so your loan repayment amount will stay the same too. This provides you with more certainty because you know your repayments will not change.
A variable rate on the other hand could go up or down throughout your loan period which means your minimum repayment amount might change. A variable rate loan also gives you access to more flexible features like making extra repayments so you can pay down your loan faster and a redraw facility, so if you ever need to access extra funds, you can redraw any extra payment amounts you’ve made on your loan.
A secured personal loan means that you use an asset you own (like a car or a house) as security for the loan. In the unlikely case that you're unable to pay back the loan, the bank would be able to recoup the costs from the security that you used as collateral.
An unsecured loan means you don't need to use an asset as security. An unsecured loan often has stricter lending criteria to make sure you can afford to pay back the loan, but it allows eligible borrowers far more flexibility
Debt consolidation can be a great way to get on top of your finances by simplifying multiple debts like car loans, credit cards or store cards into one personal loan. So instead of juggling multiple loans and repayments, you end up with one easy to manage loan and one regular repayment date. Plus, you can save a bundle on interest too.

A comparison rate is there to help you identify the cost of the loan more accurately and make it easier to compare products. The rate is an estimate of how much a loan could cost over the loan length when you combine interest and the ongoing fees and charges. It's important to look at the comparison rates to avoid any potential surprises in the future.
You can choose whether you'd like to make repayments monthly, fortnightly or weekly. Whatever suits you best.
Your repayment amount is calculated based on the length of your loan and the frequency you choose to pay it back as well as the interest rate.
It takes around 10-15 minutes to complete your online application and in most cases you'll be notified of the outcome within 30 minutes (on week days). We don't muck around!
If your application looks good, we'll ask you to provide proof of your income by sending us your last two payslips. If everything checks out, we'll send you a letter of offer contract to digitally accept. Once you accept, the money will hit your bank account on the same day (if approved before 1pm Mon-Fri). Outside of these hours, funds will be transferred within 1 business day.
If you chose a variable interest personal loan, you can definitely make extra repayments at any time 100% fee-free. Making additional repayments on a fixed rate loan may result in a break cost being charged.
Our variable interest personal loan comes with unlimited fee free redraw so you can withdraw any extra repayments that you've made on your loan at any time. Just make sure you stay ahead of your loan repayments by at least one payment to avoid any unwanted fees.
Hiver will automatically set up your repayment for you from your Everyday account at the time of loan settlement. If you'd like to remove the automatic repayment from your Everyday account, please send us an in-app message or an email to [email protected]
