Cash Secured Loans
Similar to the Credit Builder Loan you borrow money secured by cash deposited to your share savings account or CD. The funds used as security on the loan do not have to be your own – family or friends may help you by depositing money at Express Credit Union and agreeing to have it ‘locked’ until your loan is repaid in full.
US Citizenship Loans - Immigration Financing
The US Citizenship application fee is $725 per person and this can be a lot to pay all at once if you are applying for multiple family members. If you don’t have the money for the application fee and don’t qualify for other assistance, ECU can help by providing you with a loan that can be repaid over 9-24 months. You can also apply for a loan for $1,225 to cover the application fee for Permanent Residency. If you need assistance to pay for attorney’s fees, we may be able to help finance some of those costs as well.
Individuals who were previously granted deferred action under DACA may require renewal. Renewal applications for DACA are still being accepted by USCIS but they are not accepting new applications from individuals who have never before been granted deferred action under DACA.
The current application fee is $495 and ECU can assist with paying that fee. We offer a $495 personal loan at 0% interest and a 10 month repayment term. There is a onetime $40 application fee that is paid upfront when loan is funded. We do pull credit and require income verification from you and will report to credit bureaus as well to help build credit score. If you need additional funds to pay for other services received or attorney’s fees we would then process as standard personal loan, 0% interest will not apply in cases where more than $495 is needed.
