There’s a better way than Payday loans

Do you have an expensive, short term loan that is hard to repay?

You can do something about it

For help call the National Debt Helpline on 1800 007 007 or visit www.legalaid.nsw.gov.au and search ‘payday’.

Payday loans can be unfair

You may be able to do something about your payday loan if the lender has acted unfairly, for example by:

  • giving you a loan you could not afford
  • requiring you to repay it early
  • charging excessive fees

If you have a payday loan you should get advice from a lawyer.

Call the Financial Rights Legal Centre on 1800 844 949 or LawAccess NSW on 1300 888 529.

In financial trouble?

It is always a good idea to talk to a financial counsellor before getting an expensive loan. There is often a better way to pay your bills.

Call the National Debt Helpline on 1800 007 007 to find a financial counsellor near you.
