An emergency loan is a type of financing that is primarily used to cover bills, necessities and outstanding debts during difficult financial situations. The following are common forms of emergency funding:
Installment loans are a type of personal loan. The money borrowed is paid out up front as a lump sum and then paid back over a set number of repayments, also known as installments.
Depending on your eligibility and the state in which you live, you may qualify for a NetCredit personal loan up to $10,000.*
A line of credit functions similarly to a credit card. The borrower has a set credit limit from which they draw money. As the borrower repays, the credit becomes available again to use. The borrower repays only on the amount they currently have drawn, not their total credit limit.
Depending on your eligibility and the state in which you live, you may qualify for a NetCredit line of credit up to $4,500.
- Credit card cash advances involve taking out a short-term loan using the available balance on a credit card. Credit card cash advances may be charged higher interest rates or fees than normal purchases, which can make them very costly. You can typically request a credit card cash advance at an ATM or by using a convenience check.
- Bank overdrafts are an option on many debit cards and checking accounts. While not a formal loan, a bank overdraft allows customers to cover a purchase or withdraw cash when they have insufficient funds. On average, bank overdrafts cost at least $25 per transaction, making them one of the most expensive types of emergency funding.
- A payday loan is a short-term loan with a small principal balance that is usually repaid upon a borrower’s next pay date. They are designed to help borrowers cover more urgent expenses such as back-to-school costs, auto repairs and rent.
If you’re looking for a payday loan, you may be eligible for an offering from our partner brand, CashNetUSA. Loan amounts and availability depend on your application and vary by state.
Whether or not you need to put up collateral to get approved for an emergency loan depends on if the loan you are applying for is secured or unsecured.
Unsecured loans don’t require collateral, but they usually involve a credit check. Both NetCredit financing options — personal loans and lines of credit — are unsecured. Your signature is the only guarantee of repayment for most unsecured loans.
If the loan is secured, you must offer collateral as a guarantee of repayment. Different types of collateral include car or property titles, bank savings deposits and investment accounts.
You can typically apply for an emergency loan from a variety of different financial sources, such as:
- Online loans
- Credit unions
- Peer-to-peer networks
Most lenders will look at your credit history to determine the actual products, rates and terms that they can offer you. Depending on your application and the state where you live, you may qualify for a NetCredit personal loan or line of credit, which can help you cover emergency expenses.
Online lenders like NetCredit offer access to alternative funding solutions to people who have difficulty getting approved for traditional bank loans or other forms of credit. These lenders make it possible for someone with less-than-perfect credit to qualify for an emergency loan.
