I am unemployed, can I get a loan?
Most lenders, such as your bank will require that you are in employment, with a regular income to approve you for a short term loan. There are some lenders, however, that still consider applications if the customer can prove they are able to afford the repayments. If you are in receipt of regular, guaranteed benefits, or a pension, you may still be able to take out a loan. You can apply for short term loans for unemployed people right here at Upwards and we will try and find the right loan for you. There are no fees or obligation. However, if you aren’t in receipt of guaranteed, regular benefits it is best to not apply.
If you have a bad credit rating, finding a lender to approve you can be quite difficult. At Upwards, we work with a wide variety of direct lenders who specialise in providing bad credit loans. These lenders will look at your ability to repay the loan, not just your credit rating. Try our “Eligibility Checker’ to see if you are eligible for a bad credit loan.
