Another large expense that should be looked at is debt and how much that debt is costing you each month in interest alone. Figure out how to pay off you credit card and loan debt. Start putting more money toward the ones with the highest interest rates. Look into balance transfers to get a zero percent interest rate - but make sure you read the fine print and fully understand the contract. You can also call your credit card companies and ask about a rate reduction. If you need help, search for community networks or even debt consolidation companies who may be able to help. Shop around to find the right people with your best intentions at heart.

Another shocking and revealing study was release in May 2018 that states 40% of Americans cannot cover $400 in the case of an emergency expense. That means that 4 in 10 adults in the United States do not have enough cash on hand without borrowing money or selling valuables. At some point, everyone has trouble making ends meet - and traditional banks do not provide smaller loan amounts in a timely fashion. They have lengthy, confusing contracts that require collateral, good credit, and a specific purpose that must fall within their guidelines. Plus, they have a long application process and only accept large loan amounts. But this study shows that when a huge portion of the population will at some point need a few hundred dollars, immediately, they won’t have it to get out of their sticky situation. And banks won’t help. So where do people turn?
The eligibility requirements of an online installment loan are normally very basic and only require you to be employed, have a valid Social Security number and have an active checking account. The application process is normally brief after which you're given a credit decision. If you're approved, you can have the cash you need as soon as the same business day.
Good credit is not required. If you've been turned down for financing on a car or don't qualify for a mortgage, that doesn't mean you won't qualify for a LendUp Loan. Part of the company's mission is to help those with credit issues rehabilitate their credit rating over time (where available). LendUp offers cash when you need it, without creating that endless debt cycle that so many lenders facilitate with rollover balances and increasing fee structures. And with the LendUp Ladder, we strive to provide a path for customers in eligible states to move up and earn access to apply for more money at a lower cost. See The LendUp Ladder for details.
