Cash Advance/Short-term Loans

Because some things can’t wait until payday
We understand that paycheques don’t always stretch. And things like car repairs, higher-than-expected electric bills or extra groceries, can put a kink in your finances. That’s when a cash advance/short-term loan or payday advance can come in handy.

Cash advance-also called a short-term loan, payday advance or a deferred deposit transaction—can help tide you over until your next payday. Depending on how urgent the situation is, you can request a cash advance of 250000/=to 2500000/= and, upon approval, get cash in minutes. Once your completed loan application is approved, all you have to do in most cases is write us a personal cheque or authorize us to debit your deposit account electronically for the amount of the loan, plus fees , and we hold your cheque or refrain from debiting your bank account electronically until the loan is due—usually your next payday. The process is fast. It’s easy. And, it’s confidential.
Items needed to apply for a cash advance/payday advance:

• Valid driver’s license, other state-issued photo ID or military ID
• Proof of income or recent pay stub or other form showing take-home pay and Social Security number
• Chequebook with pre-printed checks
• Most recent bank statement
• Valid phone number and proof of street address

Additional documentation may be necessary. Starter checks may be permissible.
A single payday advance is typically for two to four weeks. However, borrowers often use these loans over a period of months, which can be expensive. Payday advances are not recommended as long-term financial solutions.

Budgeting made easy

Budget worksheet

This worksheet is designed to help you gain control of your finances and features an easy five-step system to create a budget that you can live with.

1. Track your daily expenses.
Use a small notebook to record everything you spend—to the penny. You may be surprised how much money is spent on coffee, cigarettes and snacks.

2. Create a budget and stick to it.

3. Trim your living expenses.
Pay attention to optional expenses you incur, such as cable television and eating out as they can really add up.

4. Consider a part-time or weekend job for a few months to catch up on your bills.

5. Consider converting unused and excess assets to cash.
If you have valuables you’re not using, such as jewelry or electronics, you may want to sell them to pay off some of your debts. And pawnshops are a great place to get cash for items of value you aren’t using.
