GLENDALE, Calif., Aug. 05, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — RadCred, a lending intermediary, is launching its contactless lending platform for problem loans. Since its inception, RadCred has become one of the top choices for people applying for short-term loans due to its fast and hassle-free services.

RadCred functions as a conduit or link between potential borrowers and leading lenders in the industry. People with credit scores below 575 or with a limited credit history are also eligible to avail RadCred payday loans for bad credit.

Choosing a lender is a hard line to hoe. It’s very tangled with multiple formalities and checkpoints that become cumbersome. With RadCred, borrowers can use their bad loans to cover various expenses, such as debt consolidation, auto loans, medical bills, and home repairs. Plus, they offer the cheapest mortgage rates in this space and can use them to meet short-term financial needs while boosting credit rating.

RadCred was founded with the idea of ​​forming a bridge between potential lenders and borrowers to facilitate the transaction of loans easily. The financial experts on the team have put together a simple and easy process to connect both parties and provide a secure transaction. RadCred is a top choice among Americans due to the presence of lenders that offer lower interest rates than traditional lenders. Choosing to be matched with the local lender makes it less onerous for the customer to pay the amount borrowed.

RadCred has built its reputation locally and globally and relies on millions of Americans to pay emergency funds, medical bills, student loans, and more. The company’s customer base is growing rapidly due to the fast services that provide money transfer within 24 hours. The loan application process is simple. A small form confirming some essential details has to be filled in and within seconds potential lenders can be chosen as per convenience.

Cybercrime, including data breaches, is now the top financial crime. Increasing dependence on digitalization, nearly 55% of the population relies on online tools for their credit needs. Therefore, security plays an important role in online platforms as data breach is possible, but RadCred ensures that its users remain free from any potential threat. Additionally, RadCred recently announced its security upgrade by integrating 2048-bit RSA protection on the website. This will ensure that valuable data of users applying for personal loans is safeguarded.

Speaking about the company’s recent development, the CXO added, “Our customers have trusted us with all their personal data and credentials and we are trying to meet their expectations. With the help of diligent cybersecurity analysts , we have built a security-enhanced contactless lending platform for bad loans.The company looks forward to assisting its customers with our 24/7 customer service.We are here to help our customers with any moment.”

About RadCred

RadCred is an online platform trusted by millions of Americans that connects lenders and borrowers under one roof for a hassle-free transaction. RadCred, however, is not directly involved in the loan process.

Since every four in 10 Americans need more than $400 in an emergency, it becomes all the more difficult for people to engage in traditional loan seeking facilities as this does not guarantee an instant transfer of money to their account. RadCred ensures you can pay for emergency services, vacations, medical bills, student loans, and more by allowing borrowed money to be transferred within 24 hours.

With the ease of local lenders present on RadCred, it becomes all the easier to apply for the loan and pay a lower interest rate compared to other lending platforms in the market. However, matching with a local lender is not always guaranteed. However, there are specific requirements needed to be matched with a local lender, but one can apply through the method recommended by the company.

The higher cost of living has created increased demand from borrowers looking for small loans, leading a number of people in the UK to explore the options available through pawnbrokers.

There has also been a crackdown on high-interest lenders, which has left customers with fewer options, according to the Financial Times. reported Friday (July 29).

According to the report, listed companies offering “pawnbrokers,” or small loans secured on things like jewelry and watches, saw good sales and good profits, pushing up stock prices. For example, shares of H&T Group – Britain’s biggest pawnbroker – have risen 37.6% this year, and rival Ramsdens has seen an 8.6% increase.

“The cost of living, yes, that’s absolutely what drives the need to borrow, but I think the bigger of the two issues is that people have fewer options available to them,” said said H&T chief executive Chris Gillespie. “People’s need to borrow has returned…but that need has returned in a market where the supply of small-value credit is massively reduced.”

When using pawnbrokers, consumers typically pay them a higher interest rate than they would for a street loan, although less than a payday lender. The report notes that those who do not pay will see ownership of their asset transferred to the pawnbroker, who could sell it.

Around 130 members of the National Pawnbrokers Association run 870 outlets in the UK, representing around 97% of the industry. Many of these companies profited from the fall of subprime lenders or unconventional financing providers, which performed well after the 2008 financial crisis.

All of this comes as consumers shed their savings cushions as the cost of living rises, pushing people to look for different ways to earn a quick buck.

See also: As savings dwindle, paycheck-to-paycheck consumers are especially vulnerable

According to PYMNTS’ “Consumer Inflation Sentiment: July 2022 — Consumers Pull Back and Prepare for the Long Haul” report, 70% of consumers plan to reduce their retail purchases, weighing current concerns with long-term concerns.

Low-income shoppers are likely to be the most vulnerable, with 63% of consumers earning less than $50,000 a year saying their finances are likely to deteriorate over the next year.

Fri, July 29, 2022

Indonesia has become a promised land for the development of the mobile payday loan market (locally known as Pinjol). Based on data from the Financial Services Authority (OJK), in April, 122 companies provide legal payday loan services online. But data from the Institute for Economic and Financial Development (INDEF) shows that 95% of payday loan services are illegal.

Many people today choose to borrow money on the payday loan because they (1) receive the money instantly, (2) face no restrictions on how to use the loan, (3) have a bad credit rating, (4) don’t need any collateral, and so on.

From a marketing perspective, many Chinese companies are entering the Indonesian payday loan market due to the tightening industry regulations set by their government. As the Indonesian market is still in its infancy, foreign companies expect to take a chunk of the domestic market ahead of any potential regulatory changes.

The past few years have been a wild ride for almost everyone, with just about every aspect of our lives transformed in ways big and small. This kind of chaos is hard enough when you’re low on cash, but when cash is tight, inflation is skyrocketingand an emergency suddenly presents a huge bill to pay, things can get dark.

If you don’t have a solid emergency fund to deal with an emergency, the most common solution is to borrow silver. Using credit cards to manage sudden debt is an easy solution, but these interest rates are often will make you regret the decision and any type of payday loan will have the same result. What you need is a collateral-based secured loan, like a home equity loan, but that won’t help you if you’re a tenant. And that’s where your car can come in: Just like a home equity loan, you may be able to get an auto equity loan, even if you are still owe money on the vehicle.

Here’s how auto equity loans work.

What is the difference between an auto ttitle loan and a car equity loan?

The first thing to understand is that there are two ways to borrow against your car: a car equity loan and a car title loan. You’ll want to avoid the latter like the plague, as it’s basically high interest payday loan who happens to put a lien on the title of your car. They tend to be very short term and easier to get, which is why people fall for them, but it’s a bad deal and if you fall behind on payments, you could lose your car.

A aEquity lending, on the other hand, is usually offered by a traditional lender, such as your bank. This is a secured loan using your capital in the car as collateral, so the interest rates are reasonable and the payments will be clear and fixed.

How to calculate your equity in your car

The first step to getting a home equity auto loan is to figure out what you strength be able to borrow. It’s a pretty simple process:

  1. Determine how much you still owe on the car. If you paid off the loan (or bought it with cash in the first place), this number is obviously zero.
  2. Determine the current value of the car by checking with Kelley’s Blue Book Where Autotrader or another resource. (Prepare to be disappointed – cars lose value quick.)
  3. Subtract the first number from the second. It is both your capital in the car and the potential value of your mortgage. That’s not to say that’s what a bank or other lender will actually offer you – they’ll have their own bizarre calculations to determine how much risk they’re willing to take.

For example, if you have a 2018 Ford Taurus in excellent condition, her current estimated value is approximately $18,500. If you owe $5,000 on the loan, you could potentially borrow $13,500 of your principal. While some lenders will let you borrow 100% of your equity in the car, many won’t be willing to lend you that much, but this is a good place to start.

The process of obtaining an auto loan is similar to any other loan. You identify a lender that offers auto equity loans (not all lenders do this – most big banks don’t, so you’ll probably have to explore smaller local banks or online banks like Funding for seafarers), complete the application and complete any other steps required by the lender. The process tends to be quite quick as long as everything is in order. With online lenders, you can often get an approval – and the money – within a day, but researching the best rates can be worth a bit of delay if you have the time.

The wrong side

While a car loan is better than a payday loan and can be a great solution for a short-term cash flow crisis, there are some downsides to consider:

  • Risk. You borrow money using your car to secure the loan, which means you could lose the car if you don’t repay the loan. This could be especially infuriating if you’ve paid off your car loan or are about to..
  • Hidden costs. Some lenders charge extra fees because an auto equity loan is not common and is perceived as a higher risk than other loans, so be sure to read all the fine print. And since it’s expensive to be poor, lenders may require you to purchase comprehensive auto insurance to protect their assets, so you’ll end up with higher monthly payments on top of everything else.

The bottom line? If you need short-term cash and have plenty of equity in your car, an auto loan is a relatively stable way to cover the gap. But exploring other options first might make sense, and you should always keep the risks in mind.

Ray Allen is supposed to be retired. He remembers it from time to time. But the tireless community advocate is cut from a different kente fabric. Every career move is intentional, rooted in his enduring determination to build relationships that benefit the community as a whole.

By Yvette L. Craig

Allen’s career path is on the move again. The former secretary of the Wisconsin Department of Workforce Development, who came out of retirement in 2019 to lead the Greater Madison Urban League workforce team, has left the local civil rights organization to run the state’s first black-owned financial institution.

Allen is now president and CEO of Columbia Savings & Loan, a Milwaukee-based financial institution founded in 1924 to provide mortgages to the city’s African-American community. George E. Gary, a respected Milwaukee businessman, oversaw Columbia’s management and operations for nearly five decades. The Mississippian, who picked cotton in his youth, is leaving his post as bank manager. Gary turns 75 this summer and as a gift he has decided to slow down a bit, embrace retirement and enjoy his golden years.

“I believe Ray can take this institution to the next level,” Gary said. “It’s going to be a real challenge because it’s very competitive today.”

Drawing on his strong leadership experience in government, coupled with his drive and razor-sharp instincts, Allen is up for the challenge.

“I want to congratulate Mr. Gary on his career and certainly wish him the best as he retires,” said Allen, who took over as chief bank officer on June 1. “The goal now is to maintain and improve the only minority-controlled financial institution in the State of Wisconsin. I want to contribute to its net growth, continued development, and service to the community. He has been here for 98 years old and we want to put him in a position to do another 98 years.”

FROM POVERTY TO PROSPERITY

Ray Allen

Allen is a Milwaukee native with strong Madison roots. His father was a factory worker and janitor. His mother was a housewife and cleaning lady. When his father was injured while working in the factory, a young Ray Allen stepped in to help make ends meet. Janitorial work at a rubber company earned Allen his first salary and his first savings.

“My dad was very insistent that we be financially responsible,” Allen recalls. “And, although my parents did their best, growing up in poverty made me realize that I didn’t want to be poor. I wanted to do things that would improve, you know, my standard economic status in life.

Allen earned a journalism degree from UW-Madison and landed a job with John Deere Co. before embarking on a career in state government.

“I spent my career, originally at John Deere, in finance,” Allen said. “So one of my early career jobs was in finance, and then later I spent time running the agency that regulates all banks and credit unions in Wisconsin’s financial system. That reinforced my need to help our community grow in wealth.

Home ownership is key to big wealth gains over time, he said. According to a study conducted by the National Association of Realtors, the typical homeowner has accumulated $176,123 in home equity over 10 years on a single-family home at the median price. In 30 years, the wealth gain has grown to $307,979.

“Our goal at Colombia Savings is to expand our ability to help people become homeowners,” he said. “For the most part, you’re not going to get rich unless you’re in a stable house.”

Allen’s talents were noticed and he began working for the state. In 2016, former Governor Scott Walker moved Allen from the Department of Financial Institutions to the Department of Workforce Development, to oversee Wisconsin’s critical role in providing cutting-edge worker training solutions that enable job seekers learn the skills needed to succeed in a 21st century economy. Allen, who served three terms on the Madison School Board, worked for DFI for nearly two decades. Allen also held a position as the former owner and publisher of the Madison Times Weekly Newspaper.

He currently serves on over 10 corporate and community boards including 100 Black Men, the Overture Center, UMOJA Magazine Board, United Way of Dane County, American Red Cross, Downtown Madison Inc. and Madison College.

LEAVE A LONG-TERM MARK

Urban League president and CEO Dr. Ruben L. Anthony Jr. said he wanted Allen by his side, knowing the pivotal role his leadership skills would bring. At a time when there are more remote workers than the norm and job seekers demand more flexible work arrangements and increased development opportunities, Anthony turned to Allen for a new approach to optimize the workforce development team.

“When Ray joined us in 2019, it was like hiring an extra CEO,” Anthony said, hiring Allen to lead the workforce development services division. “I just knew having him here would be transformative for the staff. I saw how he really developed a kind of paternal interest and mentorship with the staff.

Under Allen’s leadership, the Urban League has achieved a major milestone by placing 1,500 people in jobs by the end of 2021, Anthony said.

“With his knowledge and expertise in workforce development, credibility in the community and name recognition, it made it easier to approach the industry and really helped move the program forward. “, Anthony added. “I’m pretty sure Ray will take Columbia Savings & Loan to new heights. They couldn’t have chosen a better person to step in and usher this organization into a whole new era.

The Urban League is one of the largest community providers of career development and job placement training. With his workforce team, hundreds of Dane County residents have found employment with companies like UW Health, UnityPoint Health – Meriter, SSM Health, Exact Sciences, and Findorff.

Trista Whitehorse, employment specialist supervisor at Urban League, relishes the last few years she has spent learning and growing under Allen’s guidance.

“When Ray first came to Urban League he really relaxed and just watched how we worked,” Whitehorse said. “He didn’t make any drastic changes. He just wanted to see what we were doing and learn our strengths. He placed people in jobs where their strengths would shine through, instead of feeling like someone didn’t belong or thinking they just couldn’t do a job. He’s always been a big proponent of putting someone where their strengths lie so they can excel.

She witnessed his successful efforts to work with companies offering wages above $15 an hour, so they could support their families. And when he held a “counsel” in his office or over a plate of scrambled eggs and bacon, those who had his attention improved their financial literacy.

“Ray taught me two things,” Whitehorse said. “One was that the smartest thing to do is buy property and land. Buy land where you think you can build in 10 years. And, second, he told my partner and I it was really, really, really hard to make your first million dollars, but it’s super easy to make millions after that.

Whitehorse and her partner recently purchased a house. The millions will come next, she smiles.

The Importance of Black-Owned Banks

Black-owned banks offer an alternative to residents who have been consistently discriminated against by other financial institutions. According to Investopedia, they have generally provided more money to low-to-moderate income borrowers than other banks. Black-owned banks are also more willing to tolerate higher levels of risk than alternative institutions.

Without black-owned banks, countless vulnerable consumers could be forced to rely on high-interest loans from pawnbrokers and payday lenders for their financing.

Many traditional short-term loans offer quick cash in exchange for extremely high interest rates and fees. As an alternative, some people turn to a personal loan.

Personal loans are generally repayable in equal monthly installments over a long period. You also have the option of prepaying the loan to free up income in your spending plan and potentially save on interest. However, it could be a costly decision if the lender charges a prepayment penalty.

What to do when you want a short term loan

Many consumers are turning to personal loans over other forms of financing because they come with more competitive interest rates and loan terms of between one and seven years. The longer the loan term, the more affordable the monthly payment, keeping you on track and preserving your credit rating.

However, the short-term cost savings also mean you’ll spend more on interest over time. For example, if you get a $5,000 loan for 3 years with an interest rate of 9%, you will pay $159 per month and $5,723.95 over the life of the loan. But if you accept a 2-year term, your monthly payment will increase to $228, but you will only pay $5,482.17 for the term of the loan.

If you prefer to save on interest, you can opt for a shorter term personal loan. Or you can take out a longer-term loan to get a lower monthly payment that doesn’t drain your budget too much and pay it off sooner. However, it is essential that you choose a lender who allows you to repay the loan before the expiry of the term without incurring any penalty.

Online personal lenders with no prepayment penalties

If you’re looking for a short-term loan, it’s best to only consider lenders who don’t penalize borrowers for wanting to repay before the end of the loan term. Otherwise, you will have to pay a fee to close the loan within the time frame you prefer. Fortunately, many lenders do not charge a fee for prepaying your loan.

Lender Amount of the loan Terms APR range
happy money $5,000 – $40,000 2 to 5 years 5.99% – 24.99%
LightStream $5,000 – $100,000 2 to 7 years old 3.99% – 19.99% (with automatic payment)
SoFi $5,000 – $100,000 2 to 7 years old 6.99% – 22.23% (with automatic payment)
Reached $1,000 – $50,000 3 to 5 years 5.40% – 35.99%

happy money

Happy Money puts customers first with its innovative approach to lending. Its personal loans are ideal for consumers looking to consolidate high-interest debt to save money, and borrowers also get exclusive access to a variety of tools to help them manage their finances more efficiently.

While their funding times are a bit slower than you’ll find with other online lenders, the minimum credit score requirement is lower. And if you have impeccable credit, you could qualify for a loan with an attractive interest rate.

There are no prepayment penalties or late payment fees, but an origination fee of up to 5% may apply.

LightStream

LightStream offers some of the lowest interest rates on personal loans. Although you need a good or excellent credit score and a long credit history to qualify, you may qualify for a flexible loan that doesn’t come with spending restrictions.

If you can find a comparable loan product elsewhere with a better rate, LightStream will offer you a 0.1 percentage point lower rate. Also, keep in mind that shorter loan terms usually come with lower interest rates, which means it’s in your best financial interest to opt for a shorter repayment period.

Same-day financing is available and there are no prepayment penalties or other fees.

SoFi

If you have a credit score of at least 680, you may qualify for a personal loan with SoFi even with minimal credit history. Another important benefit of doing business with the online lender is the free access you will receive to financial advisors, career coaches, and other virtual experiences and events designed to help you improve your finances.

This online lender offers a seamless application experience, and you won’t pay any application, set-up, late payment, or prepayment fees. SoFi also allows joint applications if you are unable to qualify for a personal loan on your own.

Reached

Upstart is worth considering as it also offers competitive interest rates and quick financing options. Additionally, the lender looks beyond your credit score and examines your education and work history to determine if you are a good candidate for a personal loan.

If financing is approved, you will not pay a prepayment penalty if you repay the loan early. Yet, Upstart charges setup fees of up to 8%, as well as late payment and return payment fees. You will also pay a fee if you choose to receive paper statements by mail.

Personal loan alternatives for a short term loan

A short-term personal loan isn’t the only option to get the funds you need. Here are some alternatives:

  • Credit card: If you have a credit card with available credit, you can use it to meet your short-term financial needs. Be sure to repay what you spend before the due date to avoid accruing interest on those purchases. Or you can apply for a credit card that offers zero percent APR on purchases for a limited time and pay it off before the promotional period ends.
  • Car title loan: You can borrow up to 50% of the market value of your car (if you own it) with a car title loan. Perfect credit isn’t necessary, but here’s the catch: you can expect to pay high interest and your car is used as collateral. So this loan product can stretch your budget too much and you could lose your vehicle if you fall behind on your payments.
  • Payday loan: These loan products are aimed at consumers with poor credit and should only be used as a last resort as they come with a high APRS, sometimes as high as 600%. When you apply, the lender will ask for your pay stub and banking information to ensure that you are employed and know where to withdraw the funds from at the time of collection. Most loans are no more than $500 and are due the day of your next payday.

At the end of the line

A personal loan can help you overcome a short-term financial difficulty or cover a major expense. When researching your options, confirm that the lender does not charge prepayment penalties. Even if you get a long repayment period with a higher interest rate, your payment will be more affordable and you’ll have the option to pay off the balance in full sooner to save on interest.

If a personal loan isn’t right for you, other options are available. Be sure to consider the pros and cons of each to make an informed and smart financial decision.

Inside Housing – Commentary – Rent arrears have nothing to do with tenants’ wasteful spending https://hotelrondinella.com/inside-housing-commentary-rent-arrears-have-nothing-to-do-with-tenants-wasteful-spending/ Tue, 05 Jul 2022 05:57:53 +0000 https://hotelrondinella.com/inside-housing-commentary-rent-arrears-have-nothing-to-do-with-tenants-wasteful-spending/ We want our customers to talk to us when they are in financial difficulty and let us help them.

We want our customers to talk to us when they are in financial difficulty and let us help them. Customers should be sure that when they ask for help, we will respond with empathy. It is essential that housing associations do more to ensure that those most in need of help feel able to contact them as soon as possible.

It is also important to provide easy access to information and support. So, while acknowledging that some customers won’t have internet access (or the skills to do so), providing digital tools to allow people to self-manage their rental account, as well as resources online, is essential.

We know applying to UC can be complex and overwhelming. That’s why we developed the UC Helper, a free online tool to help people with their first UC request. The mobile-friendly UC assistant guides users through every step of an application, from creating a UC online account to submitting a claim, and what to expect in an interview.

Building Financial Resilience

Online resources and budgeting tools like our UC Helper help clients gain confidence in understanding how to manage their finances and navigate the benefits system.

But financial resilience isn’t just about solving immediate money problems, it’s about supporting people and building strong, safe and secure communities in which they live.

“Buy now, pay later programs for certain goods, while very attractive, lock people into high-interest debt for many years”

We are also thinking about strengthening our job and training offer, so that our customers are directly informed by us of any new opportunity in their field, in salaried activity with our suppliers.

Credit Union Advocate

Short-term, high-interest payday loans are readily available to most. These lenders often use aggressive marketing tactics and take a very hard line when it comes to recovering the loan. It is important that we advocate for alternative lending options, such as credit unions, that are more affordable, lower interest and longer term.

We also need to raise awareness of the dangers of these short-term, high-interest loans, which include illegal loan sharks who target low-income families. Similarly, “buy now, pay later” programs for certain goods, while very attractive, lock people into high-interest debt for many years.

“Stigmatizing and isolating families in social housing will only add more stress and anxiety and tip the balance against them. People shouldn’t be ashamed of their financial situation.”

final thought

Rent arrears among social tenants are a growing problem and the stigma is undeserved. The cost of living crisis is of course exacerbating the problem nationwide and financially vulnerable families are going to be the hardest hit.

However, stigmatizing and isolating social housing families will only add more stress and anxiety and tip the balance against them. People shouldn’t be ashamed of their financial situation and shouldn’t feel embarrassed to ask for help. Housing associations have a huge role to play, whether it’s partnering with credit unions, maximizing reach, or investing in services and resources that can help their customers.

If we can end the stigma, understand the root cause of these issues, and advocate for the right path forward, we can really make a difference.

Direct deposit loans are for borrowers with previous credit problems and experiencing financial difficulties. These debt products are typically deposited into your bank account on the same or next business day, making them a convenient option if you need cash quickly.

Still, there are downsides to consider. Direct deposits often come with exorbitant interest rates, which means the cost of borrowing is much higher than other financing solutions. So, you should avoid these loans if possible.

What is a direct deposit loan?

A direct deposit loan is a type of payday loan readily available for those who need money quickly. Most lenders don’t require a credit check, and you may qualify for financing if you’re at least 18 years old (21 in some states) and can provide a recent pay stub. You must also reside in a state that allows payment loans.

The downside is that you’ll likely be priced at a high interest rate — often up to 400% — instead of offsetting the risk of default, and you’ll have to repay the loan within two weeks or before your next payday. . Plus, loan amounts are usually much lower than what you would qualify for with a traditional personal loan or other debt product. Therefore, you should explore other options as they might be better suited to your financial situation.

What types of loans are an alternative?

Instead of settling for a direct deposit loan if you’re in dire financial straits and need cash fast, consider these alternatives:

  • Personal loan: Unlike direct deposit loans, personal loans come with extended repayment periods, usually between one and five years or more. You’ll also likely get a much lower interest rate than a direct deposit loan, even if your credit score is lower. The average interest rate on personal loans ranges from 10.3% to 12.5% ​​for borrowers with excellent credit ratings, and from 17.8% to 19.9% ​​for borrowers with average credit. Consider an online lender as many will disburse funds to you electronically within one or two business days.
  • Home Equity Loan: Approval for a home equity loan may take a little longer, but you will be able to access a larger amount if you have substantial equity built up in your home. Most lenders require a good or excellent credit score to qualify, and the interest rate is usually lower than what you’d get with a personal loan or credit card. Plus, you may be eligible for a loan term of up to 30 years.
  • Loan from family or friend: Even if you’re not comfortable asking a relative or friend for a loan, you could save a fortune if they agree. Just be sure to come up with an arrangement that works for both parties and put it in writing to avoid disagreements later. Most importantly, only borrow what you can comfortably afford to repay in a timely manner.

9 alternative options with fast funding times

If you’re not sure where to look for a personal loan with fast funding times, these lenders are worth considering:

Before

Avant offers personal loans between $2,000 and $35,000, and you could receive funds as soon as one business day. The loans are available to borrowers with credit scores as low as 580, and there are no prepayment penalties if you decide to pay off the loan early.

best egg

If you have a credit score of at least 700, a personal loan from Best Egg could be a viable alternative. Loans range from $2,000 to $50,000 and overnight financing is available.

loan club

Lending Club is another online lender with fast funding times, usually within two days. You can borrow up to $40,000 and the minimum credit score required is 600 to be considered for a loan. Joint applicants are also welcome to apply.

LightStream

Same-day financing for personal loans is available through LightStream. It also features some of the lowest interest rates in the industry for borrowers with strong credit ratings. However, you may qualify for a loan with a credit score of 660 or higher.

PenFed Credit Union

PenFed Credit Union is viable if you are looking to borrow a small amount or apply with a co-borrower. Most loans are available within one or two business days of approval, and there are no origination fees.

Upgrade

This online lender offers personal loans between $1,000 and $50,000 at competitive rates. The upgrade doesn’t disclose a minimum credit score or income requirement, but if approved, you could have the funds in your account within a day.

Reached

Upstart might also be a good choice if you have a lower credit score. Although you can receive an APR of up to 35.99%, it is far less than what you will pay with a direct deposit loan. Plus, you may be eligible for next business day financing.

At the end of the line

Direct deposit loans are a convenient option if you need cash quickly. However, they should only be used as a last resort as they often come with high interest rates and are payable over a short period.

Instead, consider a personal loan from the recommendations above to meet your short-term financing needs. Many offer online prequalification so you can assess your eligibility for a loan and view potential rates.
