Where Does America Go for Emergency Funding?

If you have an unexpected bill or another cash emergency, where can you go to access money quickly? If you can’t borrow from a savings fund or personal networks, like friends or family, you might feel like you’re out of luck until your next paycheck. The process of taking out a traditional bank loan can be a lengthy process, and you might need a higher credit score to actually qualify for funding.

If you really need access to quick cash, other forms of personal financing like personal loans, credit cards and lines of credit are available more quickly to help you find your footing. Read on to learn more about how other Americans access personal credit when they need it most.
