What is the payroll loan and how does it work?
Payroll loans are a type of loan with guarantees, as their installments are deducted directly from salary or retirement person's. In practice, this means that part of the income will be compromised even before the consumer has access to the value.
For this reason, the interest charged by banks is usually lower when compared to other types of loans. After all, the risk of the installments not being paid is low, since the amount is paid automatically.
However, even though it seems to be a good option for times of tightening, it is necessary that you know exactly how the payroll loan works. Since it is a loan like any other.
He has a consignable margin, which is a limit value that can be discounted. Thus, the amount released will be according to the person's income.
Within this modality, there are two subtypes that you can choose from:
- personal loan: when you request the full amount from the bank and pay the monthly installments of the loan;
- payroll credit card: works like a regular credit card, but has the amounts deducted directly from the payroll or EHIC benefit.
In the first option, you can split the amount up to 84 times and have up to 9 loan contracts at the same time. Interest can reach up to 1.8% per month. The second, however, has maximum interest of up to 2.7% per month.
Who is it for?
The payroll loan cannot be contracted by all people, only for those who have a fixed monthly income.
Thus, only for the following groups:
- workers with a formal contract;
- retired people;
- public servants;
- military personnel.
How to hire payroll loans?
The necessary documentation for the payroll loan is simple, it is enough that the person takes it to the bank:
- proof of current residence;
- proof of current income.
The amount available will be according to the person's income, as it is necessary to respect the consignable margin. This means that there is a maximum amount of wages that can be committed to repay this type of loan.
There is a law, nº 10,820 that determines the maximum value of the installment of this loan with up to 35% of the consumer's salary. In addition, 5% of this limit can only be used on the payroll credit card.

The advantages of payroll loans
The biggest benefit of this type of loan is, of course, the interest amounts. They are the smallest on the market due to the greater guarantee of payment. In addition, they usually have fixed rates, that is, the contractor will know the amounts to be paid at the time of the contract.
Agility in approval

Ease of payment
Because it is discounted directly from the payroll or EHIC benefit, the risks of non-payment are reduced. So, no matter if the person forgets the day he is charged, the amount is automatically deducted.
Less risk of default
Automatic payment also reduces the chances of default. Thus, it is not possible for the person to commit the amount destined to the payment of monthly fees with other debts.
