Is it the middle of the month? And are you broke? Then a quick pay day loan might be the answer to your prayers. In a few hours you can have the money you need to pay the bills.
A pay day loan is not the same as a normal private loan. When you raise a normal consumer loan, you have to pay monthly payments. If you choose a pay day loan, you have to pay the full amount back on the next pay day.
The amount you can loan can never exceed that money you are paid for your job. That is because you have to pay back the full amount on the next pay day. And you can only an amount equivalent to your payment for your straight time job; no overtime is used in the calculation.
To qualify for a pay day loan you must be at least 18 years old, have a job and a bank account. You must also be a US citizen and have a current ID. Nothing else is needed to qualify for a pay day loan.
You will probably find the lender on the Internet. Here you can fill out the application online. After you have submitted it, and you have confirmed the information, the lender will make a check on you. He will take a look at you personal information and your bank accounts. He will also investigate your employment history.
If the lender approves your application, he will send you a confirmation and ask you to sign the loan. When you have done that, the money will be transferred to your bank account. It will happen in a few hours.
Before you raise the pay day loan, read the terms and conditions carefully. Remember you normally you have to repay the loan and the interest on the next pay day. If you are not able to do that, you may extend the loan until the next pay day again. But it comes with a price: steep fines and extra interests.
If you really need quick cash, a pay day loan can be a great resource. So if your car is broken or you have to pay for a medical treatment, feel free to raise a pay day loan. But if you need a loan because your economy is bad in general, a pay day loan is not the solution. Instead take a closer look at your finances to see, how you can avoid being broke before the end of the month.
