Common Questions

By rolling multiple debts into one, you may be able to reduce your monthly payments, pay less in interest and pay off your debt faster.
It really depends on your goals and financial situation. The following should provide some guidance:

A Personal Loan is perfect for non-home owners and home owners without sufficient equity who are looking for a fixed rate and fixed repayment term. Personal Loans are typically easier and quicker to get than a Home Equity Loan; however, the rate can be higher and the repayment terms can be shorter. With a MECU Personal Loan, there’s no application fee or annual fees. You’ll get a lump sum deposited into your MECU account that you can use to pay off your high-interest bills.  And, you can choose your repayment terms, so you’ll know the exact date you’ll be debt-free.

A Home Equity Loan can be a great choice for home owners with sufficient equity.  It’s a secured loan, where you borrow against your home’s equity. Because this is a secured loan, the rate is typically lower than Personal Loans and Credit Cards; however, the process takes a bit longer than getting a Personal Loan or Credit Card. With a MECU Home Equity Loan, there’s no application fee, loan origination fees, and no closing costs.

A Credit Card Balance Transfer is another option that can help you consolidate credit card debt. If you’re getting a new card, make sure the introductory rate and post-introductory rate are lower than the rate(s) on your current credit card(s). Also check the balance transfer fee. While balance transfers with a MECU credit card are free, many lenders charge a fee that ranges from 1% - 5% on the amount you want to transfer. So, a 3% balance transfer fee on a $5,000 balance transfer would end up costing you $150. MECU credit cards come with a low 12-month introductory rate and a low post-introductory rate, no balance transfer fee, no annual fee, no penalty rate, and other perks. Click here to learn more.
