Frequently Asked Questions:
Cash Advance / Short-term Loans
What are cash advances?
A cash advance is a short-term loan or deferred deposit transaction. They can be a convenient and practical short-term credit option. By using a cash advance responsibly, you can effectively deal with unexpected financial emergencies.
A single payday advance is typically for two to four weeks. However, borrowers often use these loans over a period of months, which can be expensive. Payday advances are not recommended as long-term financial solutions.
What items are required to get a cash advance/short-term loan?
• Valid driver's license or other state-issued photo ID
• Proof of income or recent pay stub, or some other form showing Social Security number and take-home pay
• Checkbook with your pre-printed checks (starter checks may be permissible in some states)
• Most recent bank statement
How much money can I get?
The maximum amount available varies from state to state. Working within each state's laws, you may qualify for a particular advance amount based on your current income and the
lender's credit standards. You may not always be able to get as much money as you would like, but a cash advance/short-term loan should only be a part of your financial solution—the product wouldn’t be helpful if you could borrow more than you can repay.
Is the amount based on my credit?

Why should I get a cash advance/short-term loan?
You might consider a short-term cash advance as a financial tool to use as an alternative to bounced checks, late payments and tarnished credit ratings. They allow you to meet unexpected expenses or provide a short-term cash need between pay periods. Remember, they are not designed to be a long-term solution for managing your finances. Excessive use of cash advances may create financial hardships. For assistance with your personal finances:Source: www.cashamerica.com
