When a financial institution reviews your application they will be checking such issues as ability to repay a debt. Your pension, of course, is very important plus any other source of income you might have. The creditor is less interested in what the source of income is and more concerned with the fact that the source truly exists. Therefore you may have to show proof in the form of bank statements or deposits.
The creditor will also be checking such things as credit history, other debts compared to the amount of your income, length of time on a job or length of residence.
