Payday Alternative Loans (PALs)
Stop the payday loan cycle with our new Payday Alternative Loan program. We want to be able to offer our members a better alternative, to help end the cycle of payday loans. That is why we are now offering PALs or Payday Alternative Loans. To be eligible for a PAL - you must meet the following criteria:
- Be a member at the Credit Union for at least 6 months.
- Be employed for at least 6 months.
- Receive your direct deposit at the Credit Union.
As long as you meet these 3 simple requirements, you are eligible for the loan. There is no credit report pulled. Upon application, member may be approved for up to $1,000 for the initial request and may be increased upon request later. The loan charges a $25 fee and is financed at a rate of 21% APR.
PALs can also be a useful tool for building stronger credit. While most other loans all require a credit score, PALs do not and therefore give members with lower credit scores an opportunity to show credit worthiness.
