What is a Funeral Loan?

A funeral loan helps those who are unable to afford the funeral costs of a loved one. It can help to ease the financial burden involved when arranging the ceremony and cover costs such as flowers, death certificates and travel arrangements.

For many people, paying outright for a funeral is extremely costly and they may not want to deplete all of their savings to do so. In this case, a loan to pay for funeral costs may be most suitable for them.

At Dollar Hand, we can help make this difficult situation a little more bearable by providing an efficient loans connection service, matching our borrowers with the most reputable lenders across the US. It is however important to make sure you will be able to repay back the loan comfortably before agreeing to take it out.

Can You Get a Funeral Loan with Bad Credit?

Yes, Dollar Hand can help those with very poor credit histories to get a loan to cover funeral costs. Our lenders can consider other factors such as whether you have stable employment or regular income.

Our partners may offer slightly higher rates due to the risk involved or longer term loans which would give you more time to repay it back. They might also suggest other products such as secured loans or title loans which do not require a good credit rating.

If you are looking for no credit check loans, then Dollar Hand can offer options such as products from a credit union, an app or a collateral such as a home loan where your credit score is not required.
