What Information Is Needed To Apply For A Payday Loan?

Payday loans are very convenient. You can easily apply for one online in just a few minutes or at your local payday loan store - which may go by one of many names. While still easy to get, you will want to have the necessary information handy to make the process go much smoother. Here is what you need to know about the application process.

If you go to apply at the local payday loan center, you will need to have all of your information with you, because you must fill out the application there in the store. Filling it out online, of course, gives you greater convenience - and more time to find the information - if you need it.

The first piece of information that you will need will be about your job. They will want to know the name and address of your place of employment, as well as the name and phone number of your employer, or supervisor. The main thing will be how long you have worked there. It will be necessary to have been employed at the same place for at least three months in order to be qualified for a payday loan.

Next, you will need to state just how much income you make each month. There needs to be a minimum of $1,000, and some lenders will require as much as $1,500 each month. Some will accept the amount of $800 per month if you are on a fixed income. In some cases, you will need to fax some copies of your recent paystubs, and possibly bank account statements.

Then, you will want to have some information about your checking account handy. In order for them to send you the money, they will want to put it right into your checking account. This, of course, verifies that the account is real, and that they can get their money out of it when the loan is due.

Most payday loan lenders will check your information with a data bank for lenders that is called Teletrack. It is a clearinghouse for lenders that records loan applications, payment record for loans, etc. When they run their checks, they will also know how many applications you have in at any given time, as well as how many payday loans you currently have outstanding. Generally, you can have a maximum of three out at the same time - depending on your repayment record. Because of Teletrack, however, you will only want to fill out one application at a time.

After you apply, there usually will be a phone call, so they can talk to you for any other information or questions that need to be answered. One approved, then you can expect to find your money in the account within 24 hours - but many lenders can give you your payday loan in less than one hour now.

It is a real good idea to shop around some and check into the interest rates and how long you have until the loan needs to be paid back. Don't expect much on your first payday loan - possibly up to $400. Also, watch for Web sites that may not be secure. You will be giving some serious personal information online. If you are not sure - contact them through an email first.
