Social Security Payday Loan Options: 6 SSI Payday Lenders Listed

You can apply for a Social Security payday loan through ACE Cash Express, Cash Central, Cash In A Snap, Faxlessloans24.com, Speedy Cash, and SSI Cash Advance. All of these businesses have online applications. Amounts and terms will vary, but loan periods are typically 10 to 14 days. Below, we have more details on Supplemental Security Income (SSI) payday loans and where to get them.

What Is a Social Security Payday Loan?

Many people rely on Social Security benefits as their primary source of income, and they may, at times, find themselves in need of cash between benefit checks. Payday loans are short-term, high-interest loans that are expected to be repaid with the borrower’s next paycheck; loan terms are typically 10 to 14 days.

Payday loans can be extended, but this comes with even more interest and fees and can result in a cycle of “rollovers” — keeping you in debt. We suggest you treat payday loans with caution and only use them in emergencies. If you do decide to take out a payday loan, check the loan’s terms and fees thoroughly before signing. It’s a good idea to calculate the total amount needed to repay the loan (including any fees) and to pay it back as quickly as possible, avoiding rollovers. Personal or installment loans typically have better terms, so you might want to look into those first, but be aware that missed or late payments on any loan can lead to steep fees or damage your credit.
