Am I eligible for a JN Bank personal loan?

To be eligible for a JN Bank personal loan, you’ll need to meet the following criteria:

  • Be at least 21 years old
  • Have been a UK resident for at least two years
  • Have a monthly income of at least £1,000 (after tax)
  • Have an email address and UK phone number
  • Have a UK bank account

What credit score do I need to get a JN Bank loan?

JN Bank typically offers loans to applicants with high credit scores. It's important to note that your credit record is just one factor that JN Bank will consider, however if you don't have a high credit score, you're very unlikely to get approved for a JN Bank loan.

A "Good" or "Excellent" credit rating would require a score of 881 or higher, if you're referring to Experian's scale, 420 or higher if you're referring to Equifax's scale and 604 or higher if you're referring to TransUnion's scale.

Do JN Bank loans give an instant decision?

Yes, JN Bank offers instant decisions online in most cases (occasionally more info may be required). First, you can use the soft search eligibility checker to find out your chances of getting approved (this won't affect your credit score). Then, if you opt to go ahead and apply, you'll get an instant answer. JN Bank can also offer same-day funding of your loan.

Can I get a second JN Bank loan?

JN Bank doesn't allow you to run multiple loans at the same time. However, JN Bank does allow you to effectively "top up" your loan, by closing your current loan and starting a new, larger loan. There's no penalty for repaying ahead of time, but bear in mind that overpayments may be subject to up to two month's of interest beyond the date on which you overpay. Don't forget, each application for credit will be considered on its own merit.

Can I make overpayments on a JN Bank loan?

Yes, you can make overpayments without incurring any penalty fee. However JN Bank can continue to charge interest for up to two months on any sums overpaid, so although making overpayments stands to save you money in interest, you may not save quite as much as you'd imagined.

How can I get a loan from JN Bank?

You can apply for a JN Bank personal loan online via the JN Bank website. You’ll need to provide certain personal information when you apply, including the following:

  • Your name and contact details
  • Your bank account details
  • Information on your employment and income
  • Your monthly spending
