Personal Credit Lines
We’ve been around for long enough to know that many of life’s major events don’t happen when you’re expecting them to. At First Exchange Bank, we work to simplify life’s complicated financial situations. A Personal Credit Line allows you to borrow only the money you need and use it to pay for what matters to you.
What is a Personal Line of Credit?
A personal line of credit is a type of revolving credit account, similar to a credit card, which lets you draw funds as needed up to the limit. Personal credit lines are connected to your First Exchange checking account, which makes it easy to transfer money back and forth when you need to borrow or make a payment.
Unlike unsecured loans and cash secured personal term loans, a line of credit doesn’t give you a lump sum upfront or operate on a fixed repayment schedule. Instead, it’s there when you need it and you won’t have any payments due until the first time you draw funds.
Benefits of a Personal Line of Credit
Personal credit lines can serve as overdraft protection or an emergency fund, which is why many people open them before they actually need to use them. Payments are affordable, with a minimum due each month and the option to may more if you can. Other benefits and uses include:
- Flexible: There when you need it, but you don’t have to use it.
- Convenient: Linked to your checking account for easy transfers between accounts.
- Affordable: Option to make interest-only payments.
- Overdraft protection: Can be used to cover overdrafts in your checking account.
- Unlimited uses: Personal expenses, home remodeling, and anything else you need.
