For borrowers facing a short-term cash flow problem, a cash advance from FederalAvance.com’s network of lenders can be a great alternative to other short-term credit options. Lenders in the FederalAdvance.com network usually offer rates that are similar to those you would find at a storefront cash advance lender, but without all the hassle of driving and filling out paperwork, and without the embarrassment that can come with requesting an advance in person. The exact rates and fees that apply to your advance will be determined by your lender. Your lender may base their charges on several factors, including but not limited to your personal information, your requested loan amount, and information about your employment and income. Because FederalAdvance.com is not a direct lender, we cannot provide you with the exact rates and fees that will apply to your loan. We can assure you, however, that our service is FREE to use and that you are under no obligation to accept any presented offer for any reason. Be sure to review the rate and fee information provided by your lender before you decide whether to accept your loan offer.


It is common for cash advances to be paid back on the borrower’s next pay date, but exact repayment structures vary by lender to lender. You should be sure to thoroughly review the information provided by your lender regarding your repayment period and terms before accepting your loan. To help you avoid defaulting on your loans or incurring any late fees, your lender may give the option to set-up automatic payment(s) directly from your bank account. All repayment information will be provided by your lender when you decide to accept your loan, so be sure to read and fully understand all of your lender's policies regarding repayment, late or non-payment penalties, and your obligations as a borrower before you sign and accept.


Federal Advance is and always will be FREE to use. If you are connected with and approved by a lender, the cost of your loan will be determined by the initial principal amount, interest, and any additional fees charged by the lender. Interest rates will vary depending on several factors, including but not limited to the total loan amount and the duration of the loan. In addition, origination and documentation fees may be included for certain lenders and in certain states. Your lender will provide you with this information, and you should always review all the associated costs before executing your loan agreement.


The Federal Truth in Lending Act requires that lenders provide borrowers with full disclosure of all loan fees, terms, and interest rates. Your lender should disclose all of these fees and rates to you before you decide whether or not to accept your loan offer. If you decide to accept the loan terms, most lenders will direct you to an e-signature page, where you will be asked to provide your electronic signature to complete the loan process. Please take the time to read your loan agreement thoroughly before accepting and E-signing it.


All lenders must abide by applicable laws, rules, and regulations regarding late payment fees and penalties. Late payment policies may vary based on the lender and the state in which you reside. However, all of this information will be disclosed in the paperwork provided by your lender. Make sure to review and understand the presented late payment policy details before accepting and signing your loan agreement.


Our reputable lenders are dedicated to using lawful, fair and reasonable means to pursue collections of overdue accounts. In the case of non-payment, your lender may charge you additional fees. Additionally, lenders may place your account in collections and/or report non-payment to one or more credit bureaus, which could have a negative impact on your credit score. Non-payments are highly discouraged, and defaults can have a negative impact on borrower’s creditworthiness for future opportunities.


Loan renewal policies are largely governed by state law. In states where renewals are allowed, additional interest and late fees may be added to your final loan amount, so these should be avoided whenever possible. Be sure to read your lender's terms regarding loan renewal options before signing your loan agreement.


The specific terms of your loan can only be provided by your lender, and will vary depending on several factors. Some common loan terms include a loan amount of $100 - $1,200 and a payment period based on the borrower’s pay cycle. These terms are examples only, however, and the terms of the loan you are offered may differ.
