Your APS Personal Loan is essentially a line of credit loan. This gives you the ability to redraw up to the approved amount of the loan should you come across any unexpected costs. At APS Benefits, we call this ‘topping up’ your loan.
For example, If you are approved for a Personal Loan of $15,000 and have paid off $5,000, you have the option to access your $5,000 and re-start your loan term. This redraw facility can come in handy if you encounter a financial emergency such as car repairs or medical bills. Please note that there is a $50 ‘top-up fee’ charged each time you choose to access your funds.

What happens after I have accessed my line of credit?
If you redraw on your line of credit, you will be renewing your loan agreement as per the conditions that were initially approved. This means that you will now owe the total loan amount and your repayment amounts will continue as per normal, however, it will be paid off over a longer period.
If you need to increase your approved loan amount, you can apply for an increase at any stage. Please note that the maximum amount for a personal line of credit loan is $15,000. Anything greater than $15,000 is considered a Special Purpose Loan. Learn more about Special Purpose Loans here.
