Applying for a Loan

Do you charge a fee to apply for a loan?
Point Funding does not charge a fee if a loan is not funded. Applying for a loan is risk-free.
Will you report that I have filled out an application to my clients?

Criteria for Lending
I have a tax lien. Will this disqualify me?
Like with bankruptcies, tax liens and other past financial difficulties are not automatic disqualifiers. We encourage you to apply regardless of your financial history, and we will work to develop loan terms that are satisfactory to both parties.

Do you request a credit report?
How do you decide whether or not you will give me a loan?
We primarily look at your first-year commissions, renewal commissions, and past performance. We also subscribe to a number of public and private reports to check applicants’ backgrounds. For example, we look at FINRA and states’ insurance commissioner reports.
Loan Approval Process
If I am turned down for a loan, can I apply again in the future?
If your application is rejected, we invite you to re-apply at later date. We will gladly reassess your situation to see if it has changed to meet our lending criteria.
What is the loan approval process like?
Once the application is submitted an automatic email is generated from the website stating that we need your commission statements to proceed. If the application is received on a business day, we call you within one business day to personally introduce ourselves and explain the program.
After we receive your commission statements, we schedule a loan underwriting call, normally for the next day. The call is designed to either approve or decline the loan. The call takes 15 minutes.
We will email you a contract once the loan is approved. You can be funded the day after you return the signed original contact.
How long is the loan approval process?
If you send us your commission statements the same day after completing your application, you can be approved and funded within 72 hours.
How do I make payments on my loan?
The majority of our loans are commission payroll deducted. In the event your insurance carrier does not allow commission payroll deduction, we will debit your checking account monthly. We debit consistently—a fixed amount on the same day of each month—so you won’t be caught by surprise bank charges.
How long do I have to repay the loan?
Repayment is structured up to 5 years and is determined at the time of underwriting.
What are the repayment terms for your loans?
We determine the repayment terms at the time of underwriting. We charge a financing fee based on your individual situation. The details of this fee will be described in full before the loan is finalized. No origination fee. No prepayment penalty.
