Many people find this site after typing how do i get a crisis loan, well the answer is simple.

There are two main types of crisis loan, one for LIVING EXPENSES i.e. food, gas, or electric and these applications are treated as urgent, can be done over the telephone and you will be given a decision within around 30 minutes and if successful you can go and collect the cash that the DWP award you from your local Jobcentre- or you can opt for it to be sent to your bank as a same day credit ( usually done within 3 hrs).

The other type of application is for ITEMS, these ( as they sound) are for large items that you cant afford to buy for example carpets or beds- these applications are usually made using a crisis loan paper application
