Pre-Settlement Loan FAQ
When you have a question, the easiest way to get an answer is by giving us a call to set up a free consultation. For your convenience, some of the answers to questions our clients have asked us in the past are listed below.
What does it cost to apply for a lawsuit loan?
At Money First Funding, we offer free consultations while we gather information about your case. Later, we will talk things over with your lawyer. Finally, if approved, funds will be wired to your bank account. The fees we do assess are clearly detailed in the contract; if you fail to recover a settlement, you owe us nothing.
How soon can I get access to my funds?
As soon as we’ve had time to discuss your application with your lawyer, we can make the necessary arrangements to wire your money to your bank account. Often, this can be done the same day as you apply.
Why should I go with Money First Funding for my pre-settlement loan needs?
Although there are many pre-settlement companies out there, be careful to choose a one that values transparency. At Money First Funding, we maintain open and honest communication with our clients about their goals and how a pre-settlement loan can help them. Instead of charging interest, we assess an annual fee that’s easy to understand, and well-documented throughout the contract you sign.
What is non-recourse lending, and how is it different from a traditional loan?
When we say a pre-settlement loan from Money First Funding is a no-risk loan, it means you offer nothing in terms of collateral aside from the outcome of your case. If you lose your case, there’s no further obligation on your part, and you pay us nothing. We only get paid via a prearranged amount of your settlement money when you win.
What happens if I need more cash later? – This depends on the amount of money you have already received in pre-settlement funding. Although there’s no limit on the number of advances, or loans, you can receive, there is a total $500,000 limit. We are not authorized to exceed this figure.
The Importance of Working with a Lawyer for Your Pre-Settlement Loan
Although we strive to make lawsuit loans a possibility to all who need them, we do require you have retained the services of a lawyer in order to apply for a loan with Money First Funding.
In the past, we’ve seen firsthand how a failure to communicate between the lawyers, lenders, and litigants has led to confusion and generated unideal outcomes for people using lawsuit loans.
At Money First Funding, we value transparency above all else. Working with a lawyer helps us ensure the facts of your case are being accurately represented, and all parties involved understand the pre-settlement funding terms.
No surprise fees, massive interest charges, or shady contractual language in the fine print—that’s our guarantee.
