How do I apply for a cash loan using my baby bonus, and what lending options are available to me?
There are many lenders out there to choose from for consumers in need of an infusion of cash. Traditional lenders, such as banks, will factor baby bonuses into your income as they assess your qualifications, but in most cases, it is unlikely that you will be granted a significant loan based on a regular CCB benefit alone. Bigger loans require strong credit. In addition, traditional lending arrangements can frequently lock clients into long-term debt. These loans are best pursued for larger investments, such as securing financing for a new home or car.
Payday loans by contrast provide immediate short-term cash loans, which can be handy for young families trying to make ends meet. However, payday loan companies have earned a dubious reputation due to the laundry list of qualifications they often require of applicants and the high interest rates that they charge.
At loanspot.ca, we simplify the process for applicants seeking cash loans based on the income provided by government subsidies like the CCB. As long as you meet the following guidelines, loanspot.ca can help you get a Child Benefit loan:
- You have a fixed monthly income.
- Said fixed monthly income is directly deposited into your account.
- You are not currently defaulting on any Payday Loans that you may have.
Loanspot.ca lender’s provide loans ranging between $1,500 and $20,000 depending upon your current income, with repayment terms of 12 to 60 months.
