Pension Bridging

We can assist with bridging finance and bridging loans whilst you await the expected lump sum payout from the following:

Pension Fund
If you are awaiting pension or provident fund payout following resignation, retrenchment, retirement or dismissal, or as part of a divorce settlement you can get an advance on the lump sum due to you if you need cash fast.

Policies / Investments
If you have a pension policy, provident fund, retirement annuity or investment, endowment policies  with a company such as Sanlam, Old Mutual etc., which is maturing within 4 months, a portion of the funds can be bridged.

Provident Fund

DOCUMENTS REQUIRED

Pension / Provident fund
  • Completed application forms (the documents will be sent to you on receipt of your enquiry)
  • Your ID
  • 2 month current bank statement

  • Pension / Provident Fund benefit statement

  • Divorce settlement (where applicable – i.e. if you are wanting to bridge a pension payout which is part of a divorce settlement)

NOTE: Please ensure that all documents are legible.  If they are unclear or too faint, this causes delays in processing.

In many instances bridging can be arranged in 5 working days but if the fund administrators do not process the application in good time, there can be delays in setting up the bridging facility. The lenders are very anxious to get the facility in position for you and will do what is necessary to make this happen. You can assist by urging the fund administrators to expedite the application, in order that the benefit can be paid as soon as possible after the date of bridging withdrawal, so as to reduce the total discounting fee payable to the bridging company.
