APR Disclosure: The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is the interest rate charged by the lender, based on the amount loaned, cost and duration of the loan, number of repayments, and timing of repayments. This rate and other terms will be presented to you in a loan agreement prior to signing the contract, as per federal law. The maximum APR that lenders can charge for loans varies from state to state. On average the rate will fall between 200% and 1386% for cash advance loans, and 6.63% to 225% for installment loans. Some states have no regulations regarding APRs and therefore the lender can charge any rate they desire. A lender reserves the right to change their APR at any time, within state regulations.
Payday loans should be used for short-term financial needs only and not as a long-term financial solution. Any advance of money obtained through a payday loan is not intended to meet long-term financial needs. A payday loan should only be used to meet immediate short-term cash needs. Refinancing a payday loan rather than paying the debt in full when due will require the payment of additional charges. Customers with credit difficulties should seek credit counseling before entering into any payday loan transaction.
For example, if an individual wants to borrow $10,000 to finance the purchase of a car, the lender informs the borrower that making a higher down payment could get the borrower a lower interest rate, or that the borrower could obtain lower monthly payments by taking out a loan for a longer term. The lender also reviews the borrower's creditworthiness to determine what amount and with what loan terms the lender is willing to extend credit.
College education can be financially demanding and at times parents have to explore different options to fund their child’s education. This can get complicated if the parents do not have a good credit history. However, there are some federal options, such as Parent PLUS loans. Your best option is to fill out a FAFSA application with your child. This is the application for all federal student aid, and can be found online at fafsa.ed.gov.
