Types of Loans

Auto Loans
When you're planning a new or used car or truck purchase, contact your credit union first. We'll check Chrome Carbook for you to determine the vehicle's true value and help you get your financing in place before you make your purchase. Or, if you find that dream ride over the weekend, or in the evenings, just call us anytime of day or night, and we will have someone available to take care of your loan approval.  New automobiles may be financed up to 100% plus certain enhancements and  sales tax.  Financing is available for up to approximately 84 months, dependent upon individual member and collateral. Used automobiles may be financed up to 105% of retail value for autos up to 10 years old.

Just contact us to make easy application for your next loan.

Signature Loans and Personal Lines of Credit
Need cash for a personal reason? We offer loans for almost any need at fair and reasonable rates. Members in good standing are eligible for signature loans for up to approximately 30 months.  Or, if you want a little more control over when you need your funding, open a personal Line of Credit.  This account can be tapped in numerous ways, at your convenience.  You can access the funds through online banking transfers, shared branching, by overdrafting from your checking account, or by requesting a check from us.

Auto Refinancing
Did you buy a new car, truck, van or sport utility vehicle but didn't get your financing at your credit union? Then you need to visit by phone or in person with one of our loan officers and check into refinancing your loan with your credit union. Often, we can help members save money by lowering their interest rate, or lowering their payment. Either way, we help you save money.  Also, we may be able to give you a better deal on GAP or Mechanical Repair Coverage.
