BUILD OR REBUILD YOUR CREDIT WITH OUR CREDIT BUILDER LOAN
Everyone knows that building your credit is important and if you ever plan to apply for a credit card or auto loan, you’ll need to prove you are credit-worthy when it comes to paying off your debt. Your credit score says a lot about your ability to repay a loan and the higher your credit score, the easier it is to get a loan at a lower rate.
If you are wondering how to establish credit or you would like to improve your credit score, contact a Member Services Representative today to learn more about our Credit Builder Loan. With this type of loan, the money you borrow is secured in a PFCU Savings Account for the term of the loan and dividends are paid on the money while you make timely payments and establish your credit.
Once you have successfully paid the loan in full, the money becomes available in your account. If you maintain the scheduled payments for a minimum of six months, your positive payment history will be reported to the three major credit bureaus. This may help to improve your score.

- Loans between $250 - $1000
- Terms from 12 – 18 months
- Low monthly or bi-weekly installment payments
- Competitive low rates (3.50% APR* above our savings rates)
