Characteristics and conditions

The Quinto BancoPosta Pensionati was designed to meet the liquidity needs of the INPS members, and therefore it can be requested by all pensioners belonging to the institution, including former INPDAP, ex iPost, former Enpals, and by Public and State Employees and Armed Forces. The sum that can be obtained with the retired INPS Poste Italiane loans depends on the amount of the pension received up to a maximum of 70 thousand euros, and the greater the total amount, the higher the chances of receiving substantial funding and at more advantageous conditions. Recall that the salary formula or social security check

it allows to authorize the approval of the financing also to those who have been classified in the list of bad payers , since the direct withholding is a form of protection of the institution that provides the financing. The only limit is that the amount must be by law sufficiently high to be able to guarantee the survival of the contractor net of the 20 per cent withholding, therefore those who receive only the minimum pension cannot access the fifth assignment and must seek solutions alternatives.

From the point of view of the duration of the loan, the Quinto BancoPosta Pensionati provides for amortization plans ranging from 36 to 120 months , without additional additional costs, either for the early repayment of the contracted debt or for ancillary commissions. The only expense foreseen at the time of the stipulation of the contract is the signing of a mandatory life insurance policy that protects the beneficiary in the event of an anticipated death, avoiding that the residual debt passes to the heirs.

Wanting to take a standard example of Poste Italiane’s INPS pensioner loan , a 62-year-old applicant receiving a net monthly pension allowance of 900 euros can get a 10-year loan of 10,153.65 euros with a fixed TAN of 9.25 per cent and APR at 9.65 percent , for a monthly payment of 13 euros in order to repay the entire amount paid plus 5.446,35 euros in interest. The loan is granted by crediting BancoPosta Account, bank transfer to a current bank account or an authenticated check made out to the applicant. Only for INPS pensioners, the amount can also be credited to the nominative postal savings account held by the applicant.

Requirements for Pensioners

The requirements for accessing the Quinto BancoPosta Pensionati are the same as for any pensioner loan, so it is necessary to present it at the time of documentation:

  • Copy of valid identity document
  • Fiscal Code
  • Papers of the pension attesting to the amount of income

The presence of an additional guarantor or guarantor is not necessary to obtain the go-ahead for the financing, while in addition a health certification can be requested which certifies the state of health of the applicant for the subscription of the mandatory life insurance policy. In any case, for this type of loan Poste Italiane provides a maximum age that does not exceed 85 years.

Loans: advantages and disadvantages

Loans: advantages and disadvantages

Fundamentally, the choice of the fifth assignment is a convenient solution not only for the lending institution, as it feels more protected than the loan repayment, but also for the same retired applicant, who does not have to worry about remember every month to pay off the debt with the payment by monthly payment slip having the direct deduction on his account which is made directly in agreement between INPS and Poste Italiane.

In addition, the retired loan with salary assignment can also be requested by those who already have loans in progress, even with delegation of payment: however, it is clear that a further sale also involves some difficulties, such as a further deduction of the applicant’s income, and therefore in the event that the total amount of the social security check proves to be insufficient the financing could be refused.

It is clear that the only real disadvantage of a loan for pensioners with a salary-backed loan is that this method tends to exclude a substantial segment of the population, that is, all those who do not have a fixed income or even a sufficiently high amount to be able to offer the guarantees. requests. Let’s see then what can be some alternative solutions to the loan with sale of the fifth always branded Poste Italiane.

It is therefore a useful financing method for those who need to cope with a small unexpected expense, and it is relatively easy to manage. Obviously something is lost in terms of the flexibility of the amortization plan, but as the amount disbursed is not very substantial it is a relatively surmountable obstacle.

Online Loan
