Are you a young person trying to establish credit, or maybe an adult whose experienced a few blemishes on your credit report? Northeast Arkansas Federal Credit Union has the answer.
Open a Share Secured Loan or Share Secured VISA Credit Card tied to a share account and build or rebuild your credit.
To begin the process, do the following:
- Make a deposit into a regular share account (or begin saving small amounts that will add up quickly)
- Apply for a share-secured loan or share-secured VISA Credit card
- Borrow your own money and make timely repayments through auto pay
Setting up a share-secured loan or credit card can assist you by:
- Building credit over time
- Demonstrate to credit bureaus and lenders your commitment to repay your loan
- Leave money in your savings when loan is paid back, allowing you to continue good savings habits
Other important tips:
- Pay your bills on time
- Shop for the best rate on loans
- Try to make additional payments or increase the amount you pay on loans to reduce length of repayment – NEAFCU does not penalize members for early payoff.
