Get An Unemployment Loan Online From Magical Credit

You’re between jobs and money is tight. You may be getting severance or employment insurance, but it’s not enough.

This is totally normal. You need what’s called an unemployment loan or an employment insurance loan (EI loan).

Unfortunately, no matter how understandable your situation is, banks still won’t give you the time of day. Payday loan companies may lend to you, but they’ll charge you hefty interest.

Magical Credit knows where you’re coming from and offers easy-to-understand unemployment loans. You can follow a simple loan repayment schedule with no surprises from us. Magical Credit loans will help keep you on track with commitments while you look for your next job.

Check out our loan calculator to figure out your monthly payments, and then apply online. You can be approved for a loan in as little as 5 minutes!

Why Get An Unemployment Loan?

  • Internet/Mobile Plans – No one will take a hand-delivered resume. You need an internet connection and a mobile plan to job hunt effectively and these are pricey, particularly in Canada.
  • Hobby Classes/Professional Development – The time between jobs can be a good time to pursue interests, develop skills, and meet new people. Community colleges offer a variety of interesting courses for a reasonable cost.
  • Moving expenses – New jobs often require relocating, and relocating has a whole slew of expenses. There’s furniture, storage rentals, moving trucks, moving equipment, set-up costs, first and last month rent, security deposits, and a whole lot more. Unemployment loans are a great way to make this transition go as smooth as possible.
  • Automotive Expenses & Maintenance – A lot of jobs require a car even if the job ad doesn’t outright say it. A Magical Credit loan can keep your car up and running, opening the door to new employment opportunities.
  • Travel – Why not get some rest and relaxation before you start your next job? Get a little sun, experience a little culture, and have some fun before you rejoin the 9-5.

Unemployment Loan FAQs

Will my unemployment affect my ability to get a loan?

No, Magical Credit specializes in loans for unemployed people. You do not need to be employed to get a loan with us. We accept government subsidies (e.g. EI and baby bonuses) as well as income from private insurers. As long as some type of income is being direct deposited to your bank account on a monthly basis, Magical Credit will consider you.
