How it Works
Employers can partner with Denver Community Credit Union by purchasing the benefit for their employees to be able to participate in the PAL program. These loans that are provided are called Pay Advance Loans, or PALs, for short. They are a safer alternative to high-cost payday loans found at payday lenders. The Pay Advance Loan Program also provides employees with a great financial resource for future financial needs - a credit union they can trust. If employers choose, financial education programming at the work place can be included at no cost to the employer.
Denver Community takes care of the loan processing and servicing. Simply contact the credit union for information on offering this benefit to your employees. Once the benefit is established, your employees will be able to apply through a secure web link from your office (or from their homes).
