Life has a way of throwing curveballs when we least expect them. Covering unexpected expenses can be difficult if you don’t have an emergency fund. Canada is recognized as a great place to live due to its social safety net designed to help individuals struggling financially. One way seniors can get financial help is to use their pension to obtain a loan.
You Can Get a Loan with Your Retirement Pension
While you can’t borrow directly against your CPP or OAS benefits, once you start receiving your pension, these income sources may help you obtain a loan because they demonstrate a steady income stream. You’re not borrowing against the benefits or using them as collateral for a loan. Instead, you’re using them as proof of income.
It’s important to note that having these benefits doesn’t guarantee you’ll get a loan. Lenders also look at other factors, such as your credit history, total income, other debts, and the size of the loan you’re requesting.

Benefits of Speedy Cash Payday Loan
We provide loans based on various income sources, such as regular employment, child tax benefits, Employment Insurance (EI), and, yes, pension payments.
We don’t conduct a credit check. However, we do use TransUnion to confirm your identity. This process results in a soft inquiry, which doesn’t impact your credit score and won’t be visible to other entities that provide credit.
Receive your money conveniently. We send you funds through electronic email money transfer or direct deposit into your bank account.
Get your money in as little as an hour after your loan is approved. Keep in mind that this will still depend on your bank. If you don’t see the money in your account after two days, ask your bank for more information or call us so we can look into the issue.
Pay easily. When it’s time to pay back your loan, the money will be taken out of your bank account automatically on the due date, which is your next payday.
