Do You Need A Payday Loan?

By: Dror Klar

There will be a lot of different emergencies in your life that you are simply not prepared to deal with financially, but as long as you have a job, there is a light at the end of the tunnel. Taking care of life's unexpected bump-ups is easier than ever these days through the use of payday loans. They have a bad reputation due to payday loan companies that extend loans with malicious intentions, but this is a rarity. Most payday loan companies are not out to get you and tangle you up into a web of debt. Payday loan officers are people just like you and have probably had to use a payday loan to solve a problem in the past, so when you walk into their office, you get the feeling that they understand what you are going through.

Getting a payday loan is a fairly simple process as long as you meet a few different criteria. One of the most important ones is that you be 18 years old and be able to prove it with some sort of identification, whether it is your birth certificate, driver's license, or state ID card. This proves to the payday loan officer that you are neither an illegal immigrant nor a minor.

The second thing that you have to have to get a payday loan is, quite simply, a job. To get a payday loan, you must have a payday coming to you sometime soon, so you will need to have at least 2 current pay checks in most instances. These should probably be the most recent two checks that you have on hand.

You can usually be approved for a payday loan within 24 hours, which makes them extremely convenient when you need to have something taken care of immediately, such as purchasing a plane ticket or getting the money to a relative or friend who needs it.

The problem with payday loans usually occurs when people cannot repay the loan by the date that is agreed upon. As long as you go to the office or call them and let them know that you will be late on your payment, you will be fine in most cases. Whether you call or go to the office does not matter, as long as you do one of the two. The last thing you want to do is ignore the phone if they call you, but you really do not want to make them call you at all. Contact them first and let them know you have a problem and they will work with you and are likely to extend the loan.
