What Is a Line of Credit From Your Credit Union?, Honolulu, Hawaii

Credit unions offer a variety of financial products at great interest rates. Since 1936, the Hawaiian Tel Federal Credit Union has been providing resources to their members in Honolulu. Here, they share some information to help you better understand what a line of credit is and how you can use it.

4 Things You Should Know About Your Line of Credit

1. It’s Similar to a Credit Card

A line of credit is a loan. You can spend up to a predetermined amount, but you don’t have to make any payments until you decide to start using it. It’s similar to credit cards in that sense, except that credit unions usually offer better rates.

2. Secured Lines of Credit

The most popular, secured line of credit is the home equity option. This loan offered by credit unions has great rates and high limits. You can also use a savings account or a certificate of deposit to secure for better interest rates.

4. Benefits of Using a Line of Credit
