Our Loan Rates Come With No Strings Attached

Some financial institutions offer low rates but these rates often come with "strings" attached:  must have a checking account with direct deposit, must make a certain number of transactions each month, must pay through auto pay, must sign up for e-statements, must have our credit card, etc.

At the IBEW Local #56 FCU, once you are approved for a loan at a given rate, you aren't required to do any of the above.  "No Strings Attached".

What is a Credit Score?

A credit score is a number that reflects the information in your credit report.  The score summarizes your credit history and helps lenders predict how likely you will repay a loan and make payments when they are due.  Lenders may use credit scores in deciding whether to grant you credit, what terms you are offered, or the interest rate you will pay on a loan.

Information used to calculate your credit score can include:

  • The number and type of accounts you have (credit cards, auto loans, mortgage, etc.)
  • Whether you pay your bills on time
  • How much of your available credit you are currently using
  • Whether you have any collection actions against you
  • The amount of your outstanding debt
  • The age of your accounts
