A: We understand that your time is valuable. Therefore, we try to get the paperwork completed and hand you a check in 30 minutes or less. However, we will give you as much time as needed, because we want to make sure all your questions are answered and you fully understand the terms of your new loan.

A: Online applications are processed just as quickly as applications submitted in person or by phone – in one hour or less. Please keep in mind that your loan request will only be processed during normal business hours. If you apply after hours or on the weekend, your application will be processed immediately the next business day.
