									Understanding Payday Loans


Payday loans, also called payday advances or paycheck advances, are
short-term, small amount loans that individuals can borrow to cover
expenses, unexpected bills or for other reasons when they need extra
money until payday. People usually take payday loans for two-week terms
with the loan amount anywhere from one hundred to six hundred dollars or
more. When financially stuck and someone needs money to carry them over
until payday, asking family, friends or acquaintances to lend them cash
is not always a good idea. Some people may not have the money to lend or
are uncomfortable lending money in case there is a problem getting it
back. It is better to take payday loans when necessary to get through a
temporary financial crisis until they are paid. Used responsibly, payday
loans are practical and help in a financial bind but it important to
understand how they work.

The usual terms necessary to apply for payday loans are having a steady
income, meeting the necessary minimum salary requirements and a checking
or savings account but every lender has their own prerequisites. Some of
the standard requirements for all payday loans companies include being a
U.S. resident eighteen years of age or older, having an active bank
account for a specific number of months and a current payroll stub and
current bank statement. No credit check is necessary and bad credit,
bounced checks, bankruptcy and other credit problems do not usually
prevent anyone from getting a payday loans approval, as they base this on
the current bank account, employment verification and a few other
factors.

Payday loans have many advantages and the main reason is getting almost
instant cash when a financial emergency arises. Some payday loans
companies give you the cash or check immediately while others deposit the
money directly into your bank account within a few hours or the same day.
If you have a pending bill that will affect your credit rating if not
paid on time, a payday loan will pay it without adversely affecting your
credit. Remember that a payday loan is not a gift and must be paid back
so borrow wisely. In an emergency financial crisis, payday loans help
borrowers get fast access to cash, resulting in less worry and a solution
to their financial problems. It is good to check with your own bank
first if you require money until payday. A few banks are now starting to
offer their customers that have paychecks direct deposited regularly and
automatically into their bank account, loans similar to payday loans but
with lower interest rates.
