Whether you have retired or are going through something difficult, we promise to provide you with the financial support that you need to cover you until the pension lands in your bank account.

Finance fit for a king – or queen!

Delays in pension payouts can occur for a number of reasons but, we’re not concerned with these things – we’re concerned with keeping you afloat during this time.

Our pension bridging loans are ideal to do just that – plus, because it is a short-term loan, you don’t need to worry about long-term, complicated commitments.

What is pension bridging finance?

Pension bridging finance is similar to a normal bridging loan in that it provides the applicant with the necessary cash flow to keep afloat whilst waiting for a lump sum payout.

In this situation, that lump sum payout is the pension or provident fund.

Whether you have reached retirement age, have been retrenched, or are getting divorced, the pension or provident fund that you’re owed can take any time from a month up to a year to payout.

During this time, you still need money to cover your day-to-day expenses and a pension bridging finance loan can enable you to do this.

Once you receive your payout, the pension bridging loan can be repaid with ease! 

Instead, we assess your capacity based on the amount of money that’s due to you from the pension or provident fund pay out. Most importantly, our staff understand and are sympathetic.
