PayDay Loan

Frequently Asked Question : PayDay Loan

It is an instant digital loan product which is targeted at salary earners who meet the Bank’s risk acceptance criteria (RAC).

You can request for a Payday Loan through any of the following ways:

  • Dial the USSD code *901*11#
  • QuickBucks
    • Download the QuickBucks app, available on the Google Playstore or iOS App Store
    • Or click here to visit the QuickBucks website
  • Go to the Access Mobile App and select Loans & Investments
  • Access Bank Internet Banking and WhatsApp Banking channels

No, it does not. If your salary is processed via Remita, you can also apply for a PayDay Loan. Please note that when you request a PayDay Loan, an Access Bank account will be automatically opened for you and the loan disbursed into this new account.

The interest rate for PayDay Loan is 10% and 11% for third party non-Access Bank customers. Other charges include a 1% management fee, and 0.3% credit life insurance, which are taken upfront.

30 days or your next salary payment, whichever comes first.

The maximum amount (i.e. eligible amount) you can get is 75% of your monthly salary, less any active loans at the Bank; subject to ₦500,000 disbursement cap. Your eligibility is displayed when you request for the loan.

Your eligibility will be affected by any of the following:

  • If you have any outstanding loan(s) in Access Bank or other banks.
  • If you apply using a phone number that is not linked to your BVN.
  • If there is no evidence that you received salary payment in the previous month.
  • If you have taken other digital loans and exceeded your eligible amount.
  • If you have an existing loan and the monthly repayment is higher than your eligible amount.

Where you have existing loans, the monthly repayment(s) will be used to calculate your eligible amount. Your eligible amount will therefore be 75% of your monthly salary, less any monthly repayment(s). If the monthly repayment is higher than your eligible amount, you will not be able to take a PayDay Loan.

Once your loan request is successful, your Access Bank account is credited instantly. However, it may take up to 24 hours to process before disbursement into your account. In such an event, we will notify you of any delays.

As many times as you may like, as long as you have not exceeded your eligible amount.

Your PayDay Loan will be due for repayment by your next salary payment or 30 days from the day the loan was taken (whichever comes first). The loan amount will then be automatically deducted from your salary account.

Customers are at liberty to pay off their loan at their convenience. Interested customers can self-liquidate their existing PayDay Loan on the QuickBucks platform. Alternatively, customers can contact Access Bank on +234 700 300 0000 or +234 1 271 2005; send an e-mail to contactcenter@accessbankplc.com; or visit any Access Bank branch to liquidate their loans.

The loan amount will be deducted from any inflow into the customer’s account. Where the loan us past due, deduction will be made from any account linked to your BVN.

Customers will face a 1% penal charge per month for defaulting on the loan from 31 days past due.
