Not everyone thinks about what would happen financially if an emergency were to happen. Often most people end up in a financial emergency when another emergency happens. They do not have the money to take care of whatever they are going through. Ask yourself, are you prepared?

If you do not want to end up in a financial emergency when you are in another emergency there are things that you can do. You probably already have a retirement savings account and a general savings account, but you should open another savings account. This account will be your emergency fund.

You do not have to stress yourself out trying to make sure that you build your emergency fund as fast as you can. You really only need to add what you can to your emergency fund. You still have a budget to stick to, but this should be added to it.

Everyone will have their own amount that they will need as a minimum in their emergency fund. It will depend of various things such as if you are single or married, if you have children and if so how many, how many bills you have, and so on. You need to sit down and figure it all out. Generally experts say take that amount and have a minimum of six to 12 months worth of income that will cover that amount in your emergency fund. Of course it does not hurt anything to have more than you need in this account.

Always remember that this account is for emergencies only. Do not use it for any other reason. Do not rationalize something as an emergency in order to use this money. This money is to be used for real emergencies only, this is important. If you do ever take money out of this account, even if it is because of an emergency, you should replace it as fast as you can.

It is a good idea to sit down with a pen and paper and make a list of what you consider a real emergency. If you have a list of what you will allow yourself to use your emergency fund for, you will be less likely to try and use that money for other things. This is not money to use because you want to go out and are short on cash, or because you forgot to budget for a haircut. This is for true emergencies only so that is what should be on your list.

Having an emergency fund will help you make it through any emergency, without having to go through a financial emergency on top of it. This is something not many people have thought about, but is really important to have. It is one of those things where it is better to have it and not need it than to need it and not have it, so go set up an emergency fund today.

What is a Payday Loan?

This type of loan is one based on a person’s income. A lending company gives cash money to people who are approved for this loan. The person then agrees to come in on their payday and pay back all or part of the loan, or to have the money debited from their bank account on a specific date. The terms and conditions will be clearly explained to the borrower and be in the contract. Some loans may be paid back in one lump some, while some lenders will work out several smaller payments with the borrower to help make the payments more affordable and manageable.

What can this money be used for?

Just as your boss does not tell you what you can and can’t spend your paycheck on, the company lending the money does not direct you on how to spend it. Whatever your money emergency is, you can use the money to fix it. If something broke down and you need to pay to have it repaired, feel free to do so. If you need to make a new purchase and replace the item, you can do that to. There are no rules on what you can and can’t spend the money borrowed on.

Many people use the funds for Auto repair. Cars are one of the main things that break down and people need fixed right away. Even something little on a car will cost several hundred dollars. If whatever isn’t working on the vehicle is major, it can cost several thousand dollars. Some people see commercials for auto Sales and decide to use the money for a down payment on a car, truck, or van, and that is fine too.

An air conditioner that breaks down during the hot summer months can also have people with Savings in applying for a Payday Loan. The same goes for a heater that breaks down in the middle of winter. Other people have a medical emergency and need money to go to the doctor or hospital. Maybe a child needs medicine and the parent does not get paid for a few weeks. These loans can really help in this type of situation.

Some people take out a Payday Loan to pay for everyday things they need, like gas or groceries. They may pay their electric bill, go shop Sales on school clothes, pay for daycare, or a number of other miscellaneous expenses. There are not rules on what the money has to go towards, which makes it really convenient for people who just need money to get them through until they get their next paycheck and can start paying the money back.

Who gets approved for this type of loan?

This type of loan is made for people who need money fast and have a paycheck coming in the future. Moms, dads, grandparents, single people, married couples, and students apply for this type of loan on a daily basis. The lending company will need to verify income and identity. Many people are able to walk out with money in no time at all.

The best part is that once you are approved for this type of loan with a company, you can work with them again in the future as long as you paid them back, you still have your job, and there weren’t any problems. These companies love building relationships with customers and helping them out as needed in all of their financial emergencies. People do need to be of a legal age to borrow money, or have their parents take out the loan for them.

What about bad credit and bankruptcy?

Bad credit, bankruptcy, and zero credit is usually not a problem with these types of lenders. The lender looks at your job information and the information for your future paycheck. They help people with all types of credit, those with scores above 700 and those with horrible credit scores. All information gathered is kept securely and not shared. The lender will not ask personal questions about your past credit history, as they care about your current situation and not the mistakes that a person made with credit cards and such in the past.
