Financial Wellbeing From Salary Finance

Money can be complicated, and for that reason many of us don’t like to think about it. Salary Finance is an employee benefit that could help you worry less about money by making it simple.

 Salary Finance offers:

  • Money insights: a range of tips and videos as well as tools for budgeting and saving to help make money simple.
  • Loans repaid through salary: Loans at affordable rates with higher acceptance than banks. A lower-rate loan could help you save money by paying off more expensive debt or allow you to pay less interest if you need to borrow money for a car, home improvement or unexpected expense. 
  • The loan APR range is 5.9%-29.9% APR.  The representative (fixed) APR is 13.9% APR.
