Benefit Loans

If you are not working and are in receipt of benefits, you may still be eligible for a loan. Use our eligibilty checker today without damaging your credit file.

Just because a person receives benefits doesn’t mean they should be a high-risk borrower. Many people receive benefits for a variety of reasons. A lot of working people also receive benefits such as tax credits. If you can show that you can afford the repayments, you may still be able to apply.

A combination of the varying criteria of our panel of lenders and your unique circumstances means the only way to know if you’re eligible is to apply. With Payday UK, you can apply for a loan from £50 to £5000, and select a repayment term from 3 to 36 months.

More questions? We've got you covered

There is no simple answer to this question. It is possible to get a loan when you’re receiving benefits, but it will partly depend on factors other than the benefits you receive. The only guaranteed way to find out if you’re eligible is to apply. It’s straightforward and can be completed solely online using your smartphone, tablet, or computer.

Some lenders will always require a guarantor, and others might not. Whether or not you need a guarantor will depend on the terms of the lender that offers you the best deal. A guarantor is generally a family member or close friend that trusts you and is willing to help.

Retired people can get loans. Whether or not you qualify for a loan in part depends on you having a secure income to repay the loan. Pensions are one of the safest forms of income. The only way to know for sure you’re eligible is to apply. The easiest way to do this is by using Payday UK service. When you fill out a single application, we will compare your circumstances to a wide range of lenders, maximising your chance of being approved and ensuring you get the best deal available for you.

Every lender has their criteria about what they will and won’t accept. Many of the companies on our panel of lenders specialise in providing loans for people who don’t fit the profile traditional lenders expect. You can quickly find out if you’re eligible by applying through Payday UK on your smartphone, tablet, or computer. It fast, safe, and secure, and it won’t harm your credit rating in any way.

If you’ve never had credit in the past, then it can be hard to obtain a loan for the first time. It can be just as tricky as it is for a person with bad credit. However, payday lenders provide credit to people with bad credit, no credit, or just because they need fast access to extra money quickly. Many of our lenders specialise in lending to people in difficult situations. If you have no credit history and need to start building a record to prove you’re not a high risk, then a small short-term payday loan can offer the ideal solution.
