Many online lenders prey on people with financial challenges. No one wants to see a valued employee saddled with a "payday loan" carrying interest charges up to 400%. In response, NorthCountry offers the Income Advance Program, which provides low-cost loans for workers. Here's how it works:

  • Employer pays a nominal annual fee
  • Employees receive automatically approved cash advances up to $1,500
  • Money can be used for emergency expenses including car repairs, home repairs, and unexpected travel, but a stated reason is not required
  • Counseling is provided to employees on how to avoid future financial emergencies
  • Loans are repaid through automatic payroll deduction each pay period
  • The borrower pays no fee for the service
