With a Credit Builder loan, the amount you borrow is deposited into a Family Credit Union certificate of deposit account. You make regular payments on the loan, establishing a positive payment history and we report this to the credit bureau. As a result of your regular payments and the completion of your loan, your credit score improves and you will have a CD. A higher credit score translates into better rates on future loans and can have a positive impact on the cost of other services including insurance.
Rates: as low as 4.00% APR^*

If you overdraft your account, this feature kicks in. Instead of getting charged a fee for bouncing a check, overdraft protection will provide you with an instant loan. If the ‘loan’ is paid off quickly it is usually much less expensive than the bounced check fee. Repayment amounts depend on the amount being transferred and will deduct automatically from your checking account.
