Part of being a federal employee is the ability to use Federal Credit Unions for their financial needs. These institutions can expedite the loan process because the employee’s information is already on file. While some people might find that highly intrusive, you should compare what is at stake when you borrow from a federal credit union vs borrowing from a non-traditional lender, such as a car title loan with LoanMart.
Federal Employees VS Non-Traditional Loans
When you are facing a monetary crisis, you might want to handle it with a certain sense of discrepancy. It’s not exactly your proudest moment but you are doing your best to get help. We understand that you didn’t plan on being in this mess, so by using a non-traditional lender, such as LoanMart’s car title loans, you can avoid having to inform your employer of your personal financial business.
Many times, with a Federal Credit Union, they give you the option to “repay easily” by simply deducting the monthly payments from your wages. That might not be ideal if you want to use different accounts or payment methods towards your car title loan. Plus, the idea that you won’t have control over your payments might be a bit unsettling.
There are also personal loans you can get as a federal employee. You borrow from your TSP, which is your retirement contribution. You are only allowed to borrow the amount of money you have contributed, and not the money your agency matches. So, if you have only contributed $3,000 dollars, and your account says $6,000, you can only borrow from the $3,000 from what you have contributed. The worse part of these loans is that they take money out of your pension. The interest you would have gained “reset” when you finish paying off the amount and you gain interest as if you just started paying into your pension.

If you don’t feel comfortable making loans against your pension, or notifying your employer of your monetary crisis, you can turn to non-traditional lending. With non-traditional lending, such as a car title loan, you won’t have to notify your employer, and you won’t need to use your direct wages to repay your loan. With LoanMart, you can make repayments on your terms and with your choice of income. WE are discrete and won’t inquire about what you do with your money.
Title loan lenders are not banks
When you need a large amount of money for a monetary crisis, you might find that banks are more than hesitant to quickly loan someone a few thousand dollars. They require lots of paperwork and long waiting periods, just to pass on your application. You may not even find out the reason you were rejected until they send you a letter two weeks later. Banks rely heavily on your past credit history and your current credit score when it comes to lending larger sums of money. When you get a title loan, we require the following documents:
- A car title to a qualifying car in your name,
- A government-issued ID (driver’s license, state ID, etc.)
- Proof of income (such as paystubs, invoices or bank account statements) to show your ability to repay the loan
- Proof of residence, such as a recent utility bill
Communication is very important when it comes to taking on a loan and if your lender is a credit union, you might not always get the full attention to your account that you require. With LoanMart, you will always get support. Our team is dedicated and transparent when it comes to the terms of your car title loan. There are no long waits when it comes to finding information and our sole interest is making sure you are comfortable in the process.
