Why Choose a Personal Loan?

A personal loan allows you to borrow money from a lender for almost any purpose, typically with a fixed term, a fixed interest rate, and a regular monthly payment schedule. Collateral is usually not required and personal loans typically have lower interest rates than most credit cards.


Since interest rate and loan terms on a personal loan are fixed, you can select a loan and payment amount that fits within your budget—which is great when you’re consolidating debt. Plus, you’ll know the exact date your loan will be fully paid off. Using a personal loan to consolidate high-interest credit card debt might even help improve your credit score. *

Frequently Asked Questions

A personal loan allows you to borrow money from a lender for almost any purpose, typically with a fixed term, a fixed interest rate, and a regular monthly payment schedule. Collateral usually is not required.
You can use a personal loan for almost any purpose, with a few exceptions. LendingClub members often use personal loans to pay off credit cards at a lower rate, consolidate debt, or take care of unexpected home repairs and medical bills. A few ways a personal loan through LendingClub cannot be used include anything related to education after high school, making investments (such as securities or cryptocurrency), or illegal.
To qualify for a personal loan through LendingClub you must be a U.S. citizen at least 18 years of age with a verifiable bank account. (We accept applications from all states except Iowa and the U.S. territories.)

Your loan application will be evaluated based on several factors, including the information provided by you and the credit bureaus, your credit score, and your ability to repay. For the lowest rates, it helps if you have a higher than average credit score, a low debt-to-income ratio, and a good credit history. Often, applying with another person can help you qualify for a better rate and/or larger loan amount.

Most members receive their money through LendingClub in just a few days. You can help keep things moving along by checking your To-Do List and making sure you have submitted all the documents and information requested.

You can apply and complete the entire process online from the comfort of your home using your phone, laptop, or tablet. Once your personal financial information has been verified, we’ll use our marketplace to look for investors for your loan. If your loan is funded and, depending on your selections, your money will be sent directly to your creditors and/or deposited into your bank account.
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 positively impact your credit down the road if you’re able to show a history of on-time payments and reduction in overall debt (that means no new debt, such as higher credit card balances). *
