Payday Lending in the States

webinar graphic

NCSL Webinars allow attendees to participate in meetings taking place around the world from the comfort of their desk. They are collaborative, interactive and easy to use.

Most webinars will be recorded for those who are unable to attend the live meeting.

Payday, or deferred presentment, loans are small-dollar credit products that are secured by a claim to the borrower’s bank account with a post-dated check or electronic debit authorization, and are due in full on the borrower’s next payday. Consumers can obtain payday loans at more than 20,000 storefronts and websites. The loans can be a controversial form of credit because of concerns over their interest rates and whether borrowers are able to repay the loans on time. This webinar will examine payday loan borrower motivations and demographics, as well as how state regulation affects payday loan usage, and will feature the findings from a report by The Pew Charitable Trusts.
