Home Equity Lines of Credit

0.99%* for 12 months is our best HELOC rate ever!

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a great way to tap into your home's equity to consolidate bills or handle big expenses like home improvements or college tuition.   

A HELOC works a lot like a credit card; you'll get pre-approved for a specific spending limit and can then use the money as you need it. You make monthly payments based on the outstanding balance and your interest rate.

How can you benefit from a SECU Home Equity Line of Credit?

  • Save money with interest rates that are lower than most credit cards
  • Deduct interest and save on income taxes (see your tax advisor)
  • Conveniently access funds with a Home Equity Visa® card you can use anywhere Visa is accepted
  • Track and manage your account 24/7 via Online and Mobile Banking
  • Save time and enjoy the added convenience of scheduling the closing at your home or office - even on an evening or weekend

Plus, there's no application fee, no annual fee and no closing costs*.

Now that's a different direction.
