*Late payment fee: $20 accessed when a payment is 15 days past due. Because the purpose of this loan is to assist in building credit, if a payment becomes >30 days past due, the credit union will exercise the "right of set-off" and use the funds in the CD to pay off the loan. Term of the CD will be same as term of loan. A pledged share hold will be placed on the CD. When the loan is paid off in full, the pledged share hold will be removed. Proof of income is required. Debt Ratio is calculated based on the applicant's total monthly payment obligations divided by the applicant's monthly gross income.Some restrictions may apply.
