Payday Loans are not legal in the state of Connecticut. Connecticut prevents Payday loan centers from entering the state in two ways: by requiring a license to deposit checks, and by minimizing the fee one can charge to cash a deferred check. To become licensed in Connecticut, applicants must submit basic contact information and pay a $250 fee. The commissioner will investigate the applicant and determine if he/she is of good character, and whether the business will provide the community with a valuable service. The commissioner will also make sure that the applicant will continuously have $10,000 in liquid assets for each business location he/she intend to open.
Connecticut also has laws concerning the fees a lender may charge short term loans. If the loan is less than fifty dollars, the lender may charge one half of one percent of the total, plus a five-cent handling fee. If the loan is more than fifty dollars, the lender may charge a ten-cent handling fee. Like most other states, lenders in Connecticut must also post a sign at each place of business that details their schedule of fees.
Since Payday lending is not permitted in Connecticut, there are no Payday lenders in the state.
