NFCU *maybe*, but that'd be a stretch

 

There's also the subprime lenders with 25-40% APRs on PLs that may give you something, but it'd be unwise to ever use them (OneMain). If you only do regular payments you'd pay about the same amount you want or more in interest.

Re: Personal Loan after Bankruptcy

If you have or get a membership with PenFed, they have reasonable rates on their personal loans and NO origination fees. They're also BK-friendly.

 

If PenFed is a no-go, maybe try a lender like Marcus by Goldman Sachs or BestEgg. Both of these have BK seasoning requirements, but as of last checking, you meet that with 3+ years.

 

Best of luck!

Re: Personal Loan after Bankruptcy

Maybe I am just confused.  But why do you need the personal loan?  The student loan should have much more favorable terms than a personal loan.

Re: Personal Loan after Bankruptcy

hi @Dumbee thank you for replying! I don't care right now about sub prime if we have to, only because my boyfriend and I make enough and will pay it back fast. He just got promoted from Apprentise to Journeymen in roofers Union (almost $10 an hour raise $44.40 an hour plus overtime, this helps tremendously) & I make a little less but similar. Not trying to be funny just honest because we thought we cleared all these issues before we started looking getting pre-approved with lender until we were sent to underwriter and found out my house sale was coded as short sale by mistake & not on my credit but same as foreclosure & his student loans he went through rehabilitation on for 9 months? They won't come off caders report until February only because of coronavirus & presidents freeze on gov Ed loans, only thing we can do is pay them in full! We have money saved but for fha & remainder of closing we need extra $$ in bank for closing due to his credit score since I can't be on it now so we need to get personal loan (just me) but we can & will pay it off quickly with tax returns etc too. I really just need loan recommendations because I don't know exactly where to start but I did have a $3200 loan with Avant from 2018 that I paid off 1.5 years early in May 2020 so maybe they will help? It's so stressful

The student loans are coming up on cavers

report and we can't get an fha loan unless that's removed. He went thru rehabilitation but they say due to president's executive order they can't change status until January. Makes no sense to me. I don't even care about loans apr etc we know we can pay it off by early next year & we need pay loans in time to get mortgage commitment by 11/6 (takes  48 hours to remove loans from cavers)

Re: Personal Loan after Bankruptcy

Thank u! Bc of my the short sale which was dated wrong I won't be at 3 years until March 2021 which is causing the problem that is keeping me from being on the loan from this house. I'm trying to get the loan so we can pay his student loans that are still in default category & on cavers report causing the issue. We can pay it off quickly in next 6 months but will lose this house if we can't get a loan to pay off loans asap & I don't know where to start I'm afraid of applying at multiple places
