The money's right there, anytime you need it

Next week it could be car repairs. Next month it could be tuition costs. Next year it might be a new fridge, a smartphone or a family vacation. You can't predict every future expense, but you can be prepared. A Flex Equity Line of Credit is a low-cost loan you can tap into anytime at all to pay for whatever comes next.


Flex Equity Line of Credit
  • Choose an intro rate for 12-months at 5.99% APR* or 36-months at 6.99% APR*.  
  • Credit limit based on your home's equity
  • Fast access to funds via eBanking, phone banking or WCCU branches
  • Interest is charged only on the amount actually borrowed
  • No origination or closing fees


And this line of credit comes with a twist!

Most credit lines come with a variable rate. That's also the case with WCCU's Flex Equity Line of Credit. But here's where we're different:

  • If you like the current interest rate, you can request a cash advance and then lock in that rate on that portion of your loan
  • In fact, you can lock in two fixed-rate advances at any one time
  • By locking in rates, you gain the benefit of stable monthly payments and can potentially save money in long-term interest charges

We'll help you make the most of this line of credit.
