HELOC FAQs

What is the difference between a Home Equity Loan and a Home Equity Line of Credit?

expand accordion toggle

-A Home Equity Loan provides the borrower with a lump sum amount that comes with fixed payments and fixed interest during the term of the loan. A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a revolving line of credit that features variable interest rates and, therefore, variable minimum payments. With a HELOC, you pay interest only on the funds you use.

What is the purpose of this type of loan?

expand accordion toggle

- This type of loan can be used to fund home improvements, renovations, updated appliances, fund higher education, refinance high-interest rates or consolidate all debts into one easy monthly payment. As interest is only charged on the amount used, if the expense is lower than expected, you will not be charged interest on the remaining funds.

Is Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) Required?

- Christian Financial Credit Union does not require additional PMI, but borrowers must maintain their current homeowners' insurance. A Home Equity Line of Credit loan is considered a second mortgage, therefore no additional PMI or escrow account is required.

How can I access my funds?

- Members can use their Home Equity Line of Credit via Online Banking or our ChristianFCU Banking app. Or you can visit a branch to take out funds.

Is there a penalty for making pre-payments or paying off my Home Equity Line of Credit early?

expand accordion toggle

- Members are able to pay off early and close or pay down their HELOC to zero and still have the funds available with no penalty. 

Is the interest I pay on my Home Equity Line of Credit tax deductible?

expand accordion toggle

- The interest you pay may be tax-deductible, depending on how you use the funds and other factors. A tax advisor can provide details and information regarding your specific situation and advance.  

What other restrictions apply to this type of loan?
