What is a personal loan?
A personal loan is money lent through a financial institution like a bank or an online lending marketplace that can be used to pay down credit cards, consolidate debt, or cover a wide range of expenses. Personal loans come with fixed monthly payments over a set period of time.
How is a personal loan different than a credit card?
Instead of credit limits, introductory rates, or revolving balances, personal loans come with a fixed rate and payment that you choose up front. No additional interest will be added to your loan once you lock in your rate, so nearly all of your monthly payment goes to quickly reducing your balance and paying down your debt.

Will checking my rate hurt my credit score?
Checking your rate through LendingClub has absolutely no impact to your credit score because a soft credit pull is used. A hard credit pull that could impact your score will only occur if you continue with your loan and your money is sent. The good news is that a personal loan could also positively impact your credit down the road by showing a history of on-time payments and reducing your total debt (as long as you don’t add new debt, like increased credit card balances).

How can I protect myself from scams?
Scammers often try to collect personal and/or financial information from consumers by posing as employees of philanthropic organizations or financial services companies. Be cautious about providing personal or financial information to anyone, even if they claim to be from a company you already do business with. Learn about the advance fee scam.
