Yes. TurboTitleLoan.com is 100% compliant with the Military Lending Act. This means military members can be confident that they are receiving a loan that is fair and transparent.
What is the Military Lending Act?
Effective October 1, 2007, the Department of Defense final regulation of the Talent-Nelson amendment imposed restrictions on certain types of consumer lending. The final regulation focused on predatory products. The most significant restriction is a 36% APR cap on loans to service members and their dependents, protecting military families from excessive APRs. These new restrictions will severely limit certain lenders from continuing to do business with service members and their families. The law protects a regular or reserve member of the military serving on active duty, the service member's spouse, and the service member's children.
What does it mean for a company to be Military Lending Act compliant?
TurboTitleLoan.com's compliance with the Military Lending Act means that military members and their families are guaranteed:
