Are car title loans legal in PA?
I live in Pennsylvania and am struggling financially. I've heard about car title loans. I'm considering getting one, but are title loans legal in Pennsylvania?
I’m sorry to hear you’re struggling. The past two years have been tough for everyone, so you’re not alone.
Since you live in Pennsylvania, you can’t get a title loan as they’re illegal. Due to the nature of title loans, they are only legal in 20 states.
A title loan is a loan in which you trade the title of your car for quick cash. Title loans have a high annual percentage rate, which can lead to debt and repossession of your car.
Some options you may want to consider instead of a title loan are:
- Talking to those to whom you owe money (credit card or loan companies) and ask for extensions or short-term help
- Ask friends and family for help
- Check local community resources like churches or libraries for financial advice programs/assistance
- Reaching out to your bank or financial institution for help or solutions
