Balance Transfer Loan

Consolidate, then eliminate

your credit card debt!

Are you carrying credit card debt?  If so, you're not alone!  37% of U.S. households carry credit card balances from month-to-month that they are unable to pay-off.*

If you're serious about getting out from under your credit card debt, our Balance Transfer Loan may be a good option for you.

Loan Features

  • Borrow between $1,500 and $30,000 to pay-off credit card balances or other consumer debts
    • You provide current statements & we'll send checks directly to your creditors
  • Take up to 60-months to repay
    • Optional payment deferral; make no payments for the first 60-days!
  • Interest rates start as low as 6.99% APR**
    • That's roughly half the national average for credit cards***
    • Interest rates are fixed for the life of the loan
    • No penalty interest rates
  • Automatic payments required for loans exceeding $10,000
  • Up to 5% of the loan amount may be required in an ActorsFCU savings account (determined by credit)

Limitations: Balance Transfer Loans cannot be used to pay off existing ActorsFCU loans, business credit accounts, judgment accounts, charged-off accounts, or collection accounts.

Benefits of a Balance Transfer Loan vs. a Credit Card

  • Lower interest rates
  • Fixed repayment term
  • Convenience - all credit card debts are consolidated into one monthly payment
  • An installment loan, rather than a line of credit.  Stops you from acquiring more debt.
