How does our Credit Builder Loan work?
- the amount you borrow is deposited into a Monmouth FCU share savings account that you cannot touch until the loan is repaid.
- You make regular payments on the loan.
- As you repay on time, you establish a positive payment history that we report to the credit bureaus.*
- Based on those reports, your credit history and credit score improves over time.
- A higher credit score translates into better rates on future loans. It can also have a positive impact obtaining insurance and certain jobs that consider credit history.
- When you finish repaying the loan, you’ll have the full balance in the Monmouth FCU Savings Account, including dividends, to use as you please – for a down payment, education, home improvements, anything.
