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 considers. 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, 531 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?

No. Currently, decisions aren't instant. However, you can use the soft-search eligibility checker to instantly find out your chances of getting approved. (This won't affect your credit score.)

Can I get a second JN Bank loan?

JN Bank doesn't allow you to run multiple loans at the same time.

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 2 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.
