Get the money you need and continue saving
If you're building your credit or need money to cover expenses, you can borrow against your savings at Educational Systems FCU with a Shared Secured or Certificate Secured Loan.1 Since you're using your savings as collateral, you'll pay a lower interest rate than those typically offered on credit cards or unsecured loans. Both loans allow you to continue to earn dividends on your savings while getting a competitive loan rate. We understand the education community, which is why we offer the option to skip your payments in the summer.2
- Share Secured Loan: You can borrow up to the amount you have on deposit in your savings account for up to 120 months. The loan rate is your savings rate plus 3.00%.
- Certificate Secured Loan: You can borrow up to the amount you have on deposit in your certificate account for up to the remaining term of your certificate. The loan rate is your certificate rate plus 3.00%.
