Overdue Payday Loans Can Be a Financial Nightmare

Payday loans are short-term unsecured loans providing a cash advance to borrowers at very steep interest rates. Borrowers, in theory, dedicate the income coming from their next paycheck to this new debt.

Unfortunately, when borrowers cannot pay the loan back quickly, the consequences can be disastrous. The high interest rate compounds upon a missed payment and becomes completely unmanageable.

Borrowers may end up paying fees to roll the loan over, if possible. The fees may rack up beyond the cost of the borrowed amount itself and put the borrower in even worse financial shape. A payday loan for $100.00 might grow to a $1000.00 repayment very quickly.

Can you file bankruptcy on installment loans?

If you file for bankruptcy, you are required to include all debts including any installment loans.

Whether or not the loan will be discharged (cleared) depends whether the installment loan is classified as secured or unsecured debt.

An installment loan is any loan scheduled to be repaid over time with a set number of payments. Mortgage loans and car loans are types of secured installment loans (the loan is secured by the home or the car).

Installment loan can also refer to unsecured loans such as a personal loan from a bank. In general, unsecured loans can be discharged in bankruptcy.

Secured loans cannot be discharged through bankruptcy, though a bankruptcy attorney can help you select bankruptcy exemptions to protect your property. Additionally, filing for bankruptcy can completely discharge unsecured debt such as credit card bills, payday loans and medical debt, which can make it possible for you to continue making payments on secured loans.
