How to get approved for a loan with no job

During the pandemic, many people lost their jobs and needed extra money to survive, and getting a loan from a bank when you are unemployed is not easy.

How to get approved for a loan with no job

Listen to this article:

Are there affordable alternatives? We will detail several ways to access a loan, each with some requirements below.

1. A good credit score

A good credit score is one of the most essential factors in getting approved for a loan. Lenders use your credit score to determine how likely you are to repay the loan. The higher your credit score, the more likely you will be approved for a loan.

2. A cosigner

A cosigner agrees to repay the loan if you don't pay it back. This can be a friend or family member. Having a cosigner can improve your chances of being approved for a loan.

3. Collateral

Collateral is something of value put up as security for the loan. The most common type of collateral is a house or a car. If you default, the lender can take the collateral and sell it to repay the loan.

4. A lender

Some lenders are willing to give you a loan without a job. These loans are usually small. The interest rate is generally high, and you must have good credit to qualify.

5. A government-backed loan

There are some government-backed loans that you may qualify for. These loans are available to people with low incomes or poor credit scores. The Federal Housing Administration (FHA) loan is the most common government-backed loan.

Another essential detail is to document your income.

Any income you receive could help you qualify for an unsecured loan. You will need to provide documentation, such as a recent statement. Lenders may consider the following:

  •     Social Security
  •     Child support
  •     Alimony
  •     A pension or annuity
  •     Disability
  •     Spouse's income


If you can document some type of income, it could make the difference between getting an unsecured loan and a secured loan. 

It will also be essential to document your assets.

If your income is insufficient to qualify for a loan, you may qualify for a secured loan based on your assets. Here are examples of assets that a lender might consider:

    Bank account or certificate of deposit

  •     Car or motorcycle 
  •     Yacht
  •     Stock or bonds
  •     Artwork
  •     Jewelry

Suppose you wish to use any of these items as collateral. In that case, the lender will require a professional appraisal and may request physical possession of the item until the loan is repaid.
