What is an unsecured personal loan?

Do you feel like you’re being crushed under the weight of credit card debt, high-interest loans, or a major financial emergency?  An unsecured personal loan1 might help you.

An unsecured personal loan allows you to borrow money without pledging an asset (e.g., a house or car) as collateral.  Instead, you can borrow money with an agreement that you will re-pay your loan plus interest within a specified timeframe.

Since collateral isn’t involved, approval for unsecured loans is based on your credit history and finances. Once you’re approved, you’ll receive the amount borrowed in a lump sum with a set interest rate and repayment schedule. 

What do you get with an unsecured personal loan?

With an unsecured loan, you’re able to get the cash you need and pay it back on terms that work for you. Popular Bank’s unsecured personal loans can range from $2,000 to $50,000, allowing you to borrow as much or as little as you need.
