Loans For Military Personnel

Feb 6, 2008
Many loan companies set up offices outside every military installation located in the United States. The credit ratings for most military personnel are stellar because the salaries earned are quite substantial. Since military personnel get pay allowances for housing and subsistence, in addition to a steady paycheck, many lenders consider them to be a good risk for lending a military person any amount of money that they ask for, within reason.

Any lender is willing to grant credit to a member of the Armed Services because they know that they will get paid on the 1st and 15th of every month. Some of these lenders will market specifically to people who are just entering the service but are inexperienced with how to use credit wisely and will often get into trouble by overextending credit with purchases for electronics, gaming consoles and a new automobile that they really do not need.

Many military service centers will hold training classes on how to use credit wisely, how to apply for a loan and the best route to take to save for retirement or build an investment portfolio to build a bright future. Some military members will use the loans for education wisely and earn a college degree that will help them advance in the military. The competition for these types of loans is fierce and military members are learning to do a considerable amount of price comparisons before enrolling in a college degree program.

One of the most beneficial loan programs that the military is afforded is the veterans home loan. The VA certificate is a cherished item that will ensure that a military member is qualified for financing for a home mortgage loan at a rate that is fair. The certificate will ensure that a portion of the home mortgage is guaranteed and the military member will do their part by committing their own funds for use as a down payment on a home loan. With more than $40,000 guaranteed, this type of home mortgage loan guarantee is enough to ensure that military members own a home.

All banking institutions are willing to grant credit to military members because they know that the military legal system is in their corner. A military member is required to honor all debts and make payments on or ahead of schedule. A member could be discharged from the military for failure to pay just debts and lenders know that with just one telephone to someone in the person's chain of command, they can usually get the money they seek, or the service member will have to make a payment arrangement immediately.

The Government is famous for taking care of their own. Some military members might require cash loans to deal with hardships that occurred while they are in port or deployed overseas. Loans are granted through the Defense Finance Service for emergencies, and at times, the Red Cross will arrange for families to receive loans for traveling from one location to another to be with family members who are sick. A military member can also get loans for emergency cash up to $100 by simply writing a check at the local Exchange. If the funds are not available in the checking account, the military will deduct the amount from the next paycheck.
