1 Hour Loan Information
Many 1 hour loans can be applied for online and often you will get an instant decision. Some 1 hour loan companies are no credit check loans which means they do not credit check you when you apply. However, 1 hour loans will sometimes have a much higher interest rate.
If you are applying for a 1 hour loan, especially if you are unemployed or are on benefits, I would avoid making any mention of people who are more vulnerable make sure you can afford the repayments before taking out a 1 hour loan.
Here at PiggyBank we are responsible lenders and would not pay out a loan to some one who is unemployed, receiving benefits as a primary income, cannot afford the full repayment or who is in a position of financial difficulty. We will complete full credit and two affordability checks, among numerous other checks to ensure we remain responsible lenders. However the good news is that our processes are so fast that we can still offer loans in as little as 1 hour.
Although we pay out our loans quickly once they have been approved, there is a lot going on behind the scenes before hand. Even if your application is immediately approved we have still completed numerous checks to make sure you can afford the repayment, checked that the application is not fraudulent and ensured that by paying out the loan we will not be putting you in a position of financial difficulty.
Some applications may be passed through to our manual underwriting team for additional checks, we may request a payslip for example when checking your employment details. However the good news is this can be sent by email so your application can still be approved the same day. We will also check your credit file and the figures that you have provided us with regards to your income and expenditure.

Before you take out a PiggyBank 1 hour loan, you need to ask yourself whether borrowing money is the right thing for you. If you can cut down on your spending or put off buying something until you’ve saved for it, do that. If you are borrowing money to make repayments on other loans and debts, you may be in a vicious circle and it might not be the best thing to do. If you think you need help with your debts, you can contact the Step Change Debt Charity service at www.stepchange.org.
