As we continue to help as you work toward making financial progress, Credit Karma can now help you shop for personal loans!
How does it work?
Click Loans at the top navigation bar on Credit Karma. A new tab should open up, taking you to the LoanConnect website*, where you’ll be asked to fill out a quick application about your financial situation.
Upon submitting this initial application, you’ll receive any loan offers based on the information you included in the application. Then, you can select the loan offer that you’re interested in and go to that lender's website to formally apply for the loan.
*Once you leave the Credit Karma site and are on the LoanConnect site, we won't be able to track the status of any applications you've started or see the offers you receive.

Will applying affect my credit scores?
