The loans made available through our platform are unsecured personal loans. Loans offered vary by loan program and state. Please see our Rates, Terms and Licensing Information for more information about the loan terms and programs available in your state.
A personal loan is a small, unsecured installment loan that is based on a borrower's creditworthiness, rather than on any type of collateral.
The amount you’re eligible to borrow depends on your creditworthiness at the time you apply online and program parameters. Please see our Rates, Terms and Licensing Information for more information about the loan terms and programs available in your state.
Logging into your checking account with your online credentials is an important part of our loan application process. This step helps us protect you from identity theft by making sure that your money is sent to you. Also, it allows us to verify your income and other financial information quickly and easily.
This process is highly secure and performed by a trusted 3rd party that supports thousands of financial institutions worldwide. Personify Financial cannot see or record your username or password.
Even though no one will keep your login information, if you're still concerned about the security of your login, you can go to your financial institution and change your username and password. Regularly changing your login is a good practice under any circumstances.
We don’t take applications by phone. We make it fast and easy to apply for a personal loan online from any PC, smartphone, or tablet.
We don't charge a fee to apply for a loan, and your loan servicer will not charge a fee for repaying your loan early.
Late Fee: You may be charged a late fee by your loan servicer should you fail to make a timely payment.
NSF Fee: If applicable, you may be charged a NSF fee by your loan servicer if there’s not enough money in your account when your loan servicer attempts to collect a payment.
Origination Fee: An origination fee may be required on some loans. To see if an origination fee is applicable in your state, see our Rates, Terms and Licensing Information page. If an origination fee is applicable, it will be 5% of the loan amount you receive. It’s a one-time fee you pay for over time as part of your scheduled loan payments.
If you're approved automatically, you'll receive an instant decision. Sometimes we'll need more information before we can make a decision on your application. If so, we'll provide you with detailed instructions on next steps.
We may evaluate your application for one of two separate loan programs: Installment loans made by First Electronic Bank, a Utah-chartered industrial bank, member FDIC, and installment loans made by Personify Financial, a licensed lender in certain states.
We can usually deposit your money into your checking account in as little as one business day#. How soon we deposit funds depends on the day of the week and time of day you are approved and e-sign your loan agreement. Under this program, we try to make deposits the next business day, excluding weekends and holidays, but it may take up to 2 business days. Actual availability of funds depends on your financial institution’s policies. Please contact your financial institution for details.
Sometimes we aren’t able to verify the information you provided in your application using just our automated process. If so, we’ll ask you to send us documents to help us confirm your income, employment, or identity. This process usually allows us to give you a loan decision within 2 business days after you provide the requested documents.
If you don’t send us the documents we ask for, we accept this as your instruction to withdraw your application.
When you request a loan, you can select a payment method.
The most popular method is Electronic Fund Transfer, also known as ACH. With ACH, you give your loan servicer permission to transfer your scheduled loan payment electronically from your checking account, usually on the payment due date. This option is automatic and helps protect you from forgetting to make a payment.
Send a Check By Mail
Another method is to mail in a check to your loan servicer for each payment. If you choose this option, please make sure you allow sufficient time for mailing. You are responsible for payments to be received on-time.
You can also make additional one-time payments through the borrower portal (using your bank account and routing numbers), or with a debit card by phone.

No. For any loan originated on our platform you can pay off your loan at any time without paying a pre-payment fee.
Generally, any loan originated on our platform is scheduled to be paid back in equal installments. However, in certain situations your last payment might differ, depending on your payment history.
We believe there’s more to understanding your particular financial situation than just your credit score. We are able to include many factors besides credit history in our loan evaluation process.
A credit score is a person’s track record of borrowing. Credit bureaus such as Experian, Equifax, and TransUnion each have their own scoring system. Lenders use a credit score to estimate how risky it would be to lend money to someone. Lending money includes:
The higher a person's credit score, the less risky a lender will typically consider that person. Higher credit scores come from borrowing and repaying successfully time and time again, among other factors. Borrowing more and always paying on time will usually increase your credit score. Missing payments or failing to pay off debts usually decreases your score. Your credit score makes a difference. It can affect the amount of money lenders are willing to provide. It can determine the interest rate you’ll pay. It can limit the amount of time a lender will allow you to repay a loan. A higher credit score will usually earn you better loan terms. While we take your credit score into consideration, we are also able to include many other factors when evaluating your online personal loan request.

Personify, or your loan servicer, reports data about customers to credit bureaus. By doing so, customers have an opportunity to build their credit when they pay on time. A factor in building higher credit scores come from borrowing and repaying successfully time and time again. Good credit gives consumers access to more financial products at a lower cost.
