Frequently asked questions

An unsecured loan means there is no collateral required as a guarantee against the amount you’re borrowing. This is the opposite of a secured loan, where some form of collateral is required.

For example, our New Car Loan is a secured loan, meaning that the vehicle your purchase will be used as collateral. As the name suggests, our Freedom Loan Unsecured is unsecured and therefore requires no collateral.

You can easily calculate your loan repayments on our secured and unsecured personal loans using our personal loan repayment calculator. For each of our personal loan products, you can adjust loan amounts, interest rates, and loan terms to see what your regular monthly repayment would be. You can also see how much time and interest you will save by making extra repayments.

Our personal loans allow you to borrow up to $75,000.

You can use our Freedom Loan Unsecured for almost any purpose, including:

  • Paying for your next holiday
  • Renovating your home
  • Debt consolidation
  • Starting a home business

Once the money is in your account, you’re free to spend it however you wish.

Your eligibility for being approved for one of our personal loans will depend on whether you meet our lending criteria, which will assess things like your regular income, expenses and credit history. As a responsible lender, bcu wants to ensure that your personal loan is reasonable and affordable based on your financial circumstances. Contact us to find out more.
