For most of us, we live with the secure feeling that when unexpected things happen—a car accident or an illness—we have insurance to cover us and help deal with any unforeseen expenses. But there are other surprising events or opportunities that aren’t covered by insurance that we may need help with.

Helping With Surprising Life Events

You might be amazed at the many different reasons our members request a personal loan (sometimes referred to as a lifestyle loan):

  • Cosmetic procedures (including plastic surgery)
  • Cosmetic dentistry
  • Other medical expenses not covered by your insurance
  • Vision correction procedures
  • Orthodontics/braces
  • Fertility treatments
  • Domestic or international adoptions
  • Veterinary procedures or surgeries

  • Audiology for hearing aids and related services

Foreign adoptions, specialized orthodontics, or vision correction procedures—all are reasons why you might want to consider a lifestyle loan. Image from

Why would I need a Lifestyle Loan?

Here are just a few reasons you may prefer to use a unsecured or signature loan to pay for those unexpected events:

  1. Versatile—We can be a bit more flexible with rates and terms than some of the other financing options you may be considering.
