Payday Loan usage Continues to rise

Payday Loans Still Rising 

With a recent study by the Canadian Federal government. This study has shown that payday loan usage has doubled over the past 5 years. This is a bit alarming as these Canadians are relying on these high interest loans from payday companies just to make it from paycheck to paycheck. This type of usage works to increase ones overall debt when the bills and loans just continue to pile on.

In 2014, the share of Canadians that are using these payday loans increase 4.3%, while it increased from 1.9% in 2009. During this same time period household debt increased from 145% in 2009 to 160% in 2014 and this year, household debt is at the highest levels just over 165%.

Just under 90% of the payday users started  using this service to cover expenses that were unexpected, to avoiding late charges and to cover expenses that were expected.

Make Wise Decisions – Know the Interest Rates You are Paying

From the survey, under half of the respondents actually know what the actual interest was being charged. This can be very dangerous as there is the potential that the interest on the Payday loan could be higher than the interest you are charged on your credit card. This kind of usage can further lead one into more debt.

The agency called the trend “worrisome” and announced it plans to change how it communicates with consumers, to make sure they know they have options other than payday lenders.

Payday loans can be dangerous and expensive means to borrow money. The fact that more Canadians are borrowing shows that the truth about payday loans and the actual cost needs to be brought forth so people can make better educated decisions with their money.

I had a great experience with Jerry Janiec and his team at David Sklar and associates. Within a week I was already accepted and filed for bankruptcy and in a few months I will be debt free! It feels like a lot of stress is off my shoulders. Jerry and his team are very friendly, helped me along the way and was there to explain every detail of the process with me. He gave my his card and is just an email/call away if I need any help with paperwork and completing my duties. He is a very patient and kind professional and I am so glad I chose him and this company to help me fix my financial problems. If you need help with a consumer proposal or bankruptcy (like I did) I highly recommend Jerry Janiec and David Sklar and associates!
