How Does the Cash Advance Process Work?
When you are in need of money in-between paydays, all you have to do is apply for a cash advance. Also known as a “payday” or ”short-term” loan, these cash advances usually range from $100-$1,000 USD. First Loan Trust plays the role of “match-maker” by connecting you with a payday lender. Approval is simple, most lenders only require that you are 18 years or older, have a checking account and receive over $800 a month in income. There is no faxing needed! Since there is no credit check needed for a cash advance, the lender usually charges a finance fee for their services. The loan must be repaid in a timely manner to avoid additional charges.*
