Quick Assist Loans - up to $500 - now available from Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society

Arlington, VA, Monday, January 28, 2013 – Beginning February 1, 2013 Sailors and Marines serving on active duty can apply for a Quick Assist Loan (QAL) for up to $500 at all 51 Navy Marine Corps Relief Society (NMCRS) Full Service Offices located on Navy and Marine Corps installations worldwide.  Most QALs can be processed on a walk-in basis in about 15 minutes.  Active duty Marines and Sailors must apply in person. 

QALs are short-term, interest-free loans available to service members facing a family emergency or other urgent financial situation.  QALs are available to Sailors and Marines who:

• Are on active duty
• Have no outstanding loans with NMCRS
• Need help with basic living expenses or family emergencies

“This program is our best defense against questionable pay day lenders who create a cycle of debt with triple-digit interest and short-term repayments that adversely impact our service members and their families” said MajGen Carl Jensen, USMC (Ret), Executive Vice President, Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society.  Last year, the Navy-Marine Corps Relief Society provided more than 43,000 QALs to active duty Sailors and Marines. 

For more information visit www.nmcrs.org/QAL or contact the nearest NMCRS office.
