Requirements to apply for a loan with Ubank

To apply for a personal cash loan you must be 18, a South African Citizen and be employed on a full-time basis with a demonstratable income. You will be required to provide a copy of your ID, your 3-month bank statements, pay slips and a utility bill.

How long does it take Ubank to get back on loan applications?

One of our promises we have made for our clients is that we will never take longer than one business day to get back on their personal loan applications. This means if you have applied in the morning, you will get a response on the very same day.

We are aware that customers usually want to make use of the money right away so we don’t see any point of making our clients wait longer than one business day. If we can’t approve your personal loan application, we will give you reasons as to why we had to decline your credit request.

Affordability is mostly the reason why we can’t approve personal loan applications. If we see that you already have a lot on your plate, we will not add further credit pressure on your budget. The client is more than welcome to come back to us and apply at a later stage or when you have finished paying some of your loans.

Can I settle my personal loan earlier than the required date?

If you have money in your disposal and would like to pay for your personal loan sooner than the scheduled date, you are more than welcome to do so.
