Payday Loan Glossary: collateral

Collateral is a term used for assets that a borrower is obliged to turn over to a lender if unable to repay a loan. Usually, the property itself is the collateral for a property loan. Collateral recovers all or part of a debt, if repayment of the loan is not forthcoming.

Definition: collateral (Cash Advances)

Payday loans provide cash advances to people in need of quick money. The payday loan store (or online pay day provider) can assist consumers in paying off debts such as utility bills or emergency car repairs when the cash flow is not readily available from their bank accounts.

Alternatives to Payday Loans (Cash Advances): The FTC has the following suggestions when researching an online payday loan provider or store:
When you need credit, shop carefully. Compare offers. Look for the credit offer with the lowest APR - consider a small loan from your credit union or small loan company, an advance on pay from your employer, or a loan from family or friends.
If you decide you must use a payday loan, borrow only as much as you can afford to pay with your next paycheck and still have enough to make it to the next payday.
