Waiting Time of Budgeting Loans

If you are unemployed and on benefits, you are basically locked out of using credit facilities such as guarantor loans and payday loans to meet your short-term financial needs. Luckily, there are Budgeting Loans that are tailored to help people like you. Administered by the Department of Work and Pensions, Budgeting Loans are short-term loans that attract no interest. You only repay what you received. The loans are meant to help you pay for unexpected or essential expenses such as clothes for job interviews, home repairs, and house furniture. The least amount you can borrow is £100 and the most are £812. Repayments, which are automatically deducted from your benefits payments, take at most 104 weeks from the time you receive the loan payment.

How long does it take to get a budget loan in 2019?

If you qualify for a Budgeting Loan (you are on Jobseeker’s Allowance, Pension Credit, Employment allowance, or Income support) you may consider taking the loan to finance various short-term needs. If your application is accepted and you are fine with the offer made to you, it will take approximately 20 working days for the offered amount to be paid to your bank account. It is important to note, however, that the period it takes for the applied amount to be made may take longer if there are issues with your application such as lack of signature and unfilled spaces. So the trick of getting your payment faster is to follow all the applications steps and provide all the requested information.

How to speed up a budgeting loan application process

• Get the budgeting loan application form from Jobseeker’s Plus Centre or download it online. For faster processing, fill the form online. Printed forms can take as many as 25 working days to process and are, therefore, discouraged if you want to get the loan quickly. You also have the option of requesting the form to be delivered to you. It takes around 5 working days to have the delivery done. If you are in a hurry, that is not an option that you should consider.

• Fill out all the spaces fully and clearly to prevent the form from being returned because of missing information or lack of clarity.

• Include reasonable prices of items to minimize time spent on checking them.

• Include your National Insurance number, signature, and date on the form.

• After confirming that all the requested information has been filled in, return the form as soon as possible.

Application review

After returning the application, it will be rated and an offer made to you. You can either decline or accept it. If you accept the offer, your reply will be processed and payment issued to your account within 12 working days of accepting the offer.

If you are short on cash and need to pay for unexpected expenses, you need a credit facility that is not only favorable to your financial situation but also pays quickly. Budgeting Loans meet both of these requirements. All you have to do is to fast track the application process by providing all the requested information on time.

Financial Technological Trends of 2018

2018 looks to be the year when technological innovations either cross paths or set a distinct impression on the markets. 2018 is also touted as the year artificial intelligence reaches new heights. Here we look at some of the important financial technological trends that will change the financial landscape in 2018.

  1. Digital Currency Everywhere

The growth of the internet coupled with the growth of the retail shopping and social media websites has greatly impacted traditional banking institutions. Say ten years ago, not many people used e-retail platforms, and social media websites were filled with young people. But now everything is literally a click away; in such an environment, it becomes necessary to provide rapid digital banking solutions as well. So we believe that huge amounts of investment and infrastructural growth will be seen in the digital currency sphere. Either that or huge financial institutions will likely buy smaller companies that dabble in the space of digital currency.

  1. To know more

Artificial intelligence is going to move away from the regular machine learning and “typical” robotics to the world of cognitive science and its implications on the real world in terms of sales, markets, investment predictions, stock market exchanges and so on. The world of cognitive science is intriguing as such but the development of AI will see a sharp rise in the financial world to predict what the user wants and where he or she will be looking to invest their money. The trend of using artificial intelligence to predict user behavior can be hit or a miss; we will have to wait till 2019 to roll by for us to see the results.

  1. Restructure

Design thinking has been a concept that has been around the block for quite some time now but the financial institution as such is late to the party. We are most likely to see traditional and digital banks utilize the potential of UX design along with the massive capabilities of Augmented Reality (AR) and Virtual Reality (VR). The essential outcome that financial and banking institutions will be seeking is real-time risk assessment and decision making. The communication channels will be decentralized to a large extent but 2018 is not the year where complete decentralization occurs. Financial powerhouses are still cautious about the rise of cryptocurrency and would likely see whether the completely decentralized system can sustain itself, as it has already proved that it can function quite well.

FINANCIAL TIPS EVERY COLLEGE STUDENT SHOULD KNOW

The transition from being a school kid to a college student has a lot of perks. For one, you are finally given the chance to set out on your own, live independently and make your own decisions. However, along with these perks comes the realisation that you can no longer function as part of your parents’ financial universe and will now be responsible for your own allowance and how you spend it. College students are notoriously described as the worst money managers. However, with a little knowledge and the right tools; there is no reason why they cannot rectify this reputation. Here we have listed out 10 tips for proper and diligent management of money while in college because let’s face it, college is expensive, and managing to not be broke or in debt by the end of the month, is a pretty hard thing to do.

1: BUDGET, BUDGET, AND BUDGET:

One of the biggest essentials for good financial management in college is to create a budget and more importantly, to stick to it. To create a budget, you need to first determine the amount of money flowing in from different sources, parents, grandparents, relatives, a part-time job etc. Once you finalize your cash in hand, you need to estimate all your expenses, including miscellaneous ones like stationery. Further, put all these categories and numbers into a spreadsheet and try to balance it, leaving a little money left over for emergencies and savings, if any. Once your budget is thus fixed, you need to devote yourself to sticking to it. And the main way of doing this leads to our next tip.

 

 2: TRACK YOUR EXPENSES:

While this does not mean keeping track of where every single penny went, it is essential to document what you spent and where. There are many apps that allow you to track your spending habits over a period of time and make sure that you stick to your budget and don’t overspend.

 


3: START SAVING:

It is never too soon to start saving. Try the envelope method where you put a set amount into it every month that will act as a cushion of safety for you in case you really need money and do not wish to borrow. The earlier in life you learn to save, the better off you’ll be when it comes to having money saved up for small financial emergencies and the bigger expenses of life, like retirement.

 

4: AVOID GETTING CREDIT CARDS:

Students often forget that having a credit card does not mean free money and that any balance you have run up, needs to be repaid. Any bills not paid on time will incur interest charges and late fees which will most definitely leave you in trouble. It is, therefore, wiser to not own a credit card in college. If by chance you do happen to own a one, make sure to restrict it for emergencies and to pay off your bills diligently, every month.

 


5: DON’T BORROW, MINIMISE DEBT:

Many college students are often left with a huge debt after graduation that they have trouble paying off. One way of avoiding this is to simply not borrow. This can mean both from your friends and acquaintances, and also from the bank. While taking out a student loan might seem tempting, it can leave you in a fix in future when you do not have the means of paying it off. Avoid borrowing small amounts from friends as well, for while the amount might seem meagre when you borrow it, it can pile up and total to a large amount that you will have trouble returning in the future.

6: GET A JOB:  One way of ensuring you have enough money to pay for your expenses and not having to borrow is by getting a job. This can be anything that interests you, from a sit at home online job, to working at your local NGO’s, to working at your neighborhood fast food joint. These jobs will provide a sense of financial security to you that will make your college life just a little easier to live.

 


7: CAPITALISE ON COUPONS AND STUDENT DISCOUNTS:

Another way to save a penny or two is to look for student discounts in the vicinity that will allow you to spend lesser than you had imagined.  Many restaurants near your college will provide such discounts if you present your college ID and it is thus much more beneficial to eat at these restaurants than fancy, pricey ones that will burn a rather large hole in your pocket.

 


8: CUT OUT VICES:

A huge way in which many college students lose money is through inculcating habits like chain smoking and binge drinking. While an occasional night out to grab a beer with friends can do no harm, repeating such visits every day, until it becomes routine, can cost you quite a lot of money. Alcohol and Cigarettes do not come cheap, and they can harm your health as well as your budget at the same time. It is easier to try and cut out these vices altogether than regret it later.


9: GET ORGANISED:

Little things can chip away at your budget. Avoid paying fines for wrong parking, attendance shortage failed papers, library books returned beyond due dates etc. All of these incidents can be avoided with an organized way of living that includes maintaining to-do lists, paying your bills on time, planning ahead for the week and making sure to attend all your classes, despite the millions of other opportunities tempting you.

10: LIVE LIKE A STUDENT AND LEARN TO LOVE FRUGALITY:

Learn to not be like one of those students who believe they need to live the high life, filled with expensive solo apartments, pricy dine outs and rich friends in order to enjoy college. College is about sharing dorm rooms and having 3 other roommates, it’s about sometimes choosing cup noodles over a steak dinner and indulging in a fun movie night rather than partying at expensive pubs every other day.  In other words, learn to live like a student should. Don’t live alone when you can split rent with others, capitalize on campus or hostel meal plans, borrow expensive textbooks from seniors or buy it off second-hand stores, use your student id’s at as many retailers and restaurants as you can, shop at the streets, eat at the streets. Finally, set yourself limits and avoid unnecessary expenses.

While all these tips help you restrict your spending and save as much as you can, make sure to also reward yourself every once in a while and allow an occasional splurge where you can let loose and have as much fun as you’d like, because that’s what makes college, well, college.
