How to Apply for a Loan from Avant

During the application verification process, we may need to assess and verify the information that you provided, including identity, employment, income and bank account details. All applicants must undergo an identity verification. The easiest way to do this is via electronic knowledge-based authentication (KBA), where you will be asked a series of questions that only you should be able to answer. This type of verification is a standard part of the application process. In addition, you may need to provide confirmation of additional details, such as your income and banking information before your loan application can be approved. Applicants are required to have a personal checking or savings account on file. We may require you to submit bank documents verifying your account details and income deposits. Your banking details, such as your routing number and account number are submitted at the time of application. Some customers may be required to verify that the bank account on file must be the one into which you receive the majority of your income. Because Avant provides access to personal installment loans, customers are unable to receive loan proceeds in an account used for business purposes. All customers must provide information regarding their income source. If you are employed by traditional means or receiving benefits, the fastest and easiest way for us to verify your income and employment is through our online verification tool (OVT). As part of the verification process we may elect to call your employer, for which you will provide authorization during the application process. In order to expedite the verification process, we suggest you provide the following information: your job title, the department you work in, the best number to reach your employer, best time to call, names of specific people to speak with (supervisor, HR representative), if there is an extension we should dial (personal, or for a supervisor, HR, etc.).

Avant’s technology applies algorithms, machine-learning protocols, and analytical tools in addition to the standard consumer data pulled to determine a customized rate, amount and length at which money can be borrowed. The company began providing access to loans in just 16 states in 2013. Avant currently issues loans in 46 states, and in October 2013, the company expanded beyond US borders to Canada and the United Kingdom.
