FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTION

Why do loan rates vary at FSCU and other organizations say their rate is the same for everyone?

ANSWER

There are two types of lending philosophies different lending organizations use. One type is called “non‐risk based lending” and the other is known as “risk based lending”. Under non‐risk based lending you will see advertisements that say “Everyone who meets our qualifications is guaranteed our same lowest rate.” Organizations who offer this deny many more loans due to lower credit scores and must “average” out their rates so the best credit scores pay a higher amount then they should.

Five Star Credit Union believes it is more fair to use “risk based” lending so more members get loans, members with higher credit scores pay lower interest and members with lower credit scores still qualify for a loan but pay a bit more for it. That is a much better alternative then not getting the loan and not getting the car or other item that you need for work or other important reasons.

 

 


PAYMENT PROTECTION

Payment Protection Insurance (Credit Life and Disability)
Payment Protection helps relieve the financial stress and worry related to making loan payments when your life takes an unexpected turn. Payment Protection is available on consumer loans.


We Offer Two Types of Payment Protection

  • Credit Life Insurance protects your loved ones by reducing or paying off the insured balance of your loan – up to $40,000 – if you die during the term of the loan.

  • Credit Disability Insurance pays your loan payments – up to $750 per month per loan – if you become ill or disabled and are unable to work at any time during the term of the loan ($40,000 maximum benefit per loan). 


Payment Protection

  • Cost - Payment Protection rates are established by each state and generally result in reasonable monthly premiums.

  • Convenient - Applying for Payment Protection is easy and usually done at the time of the loan application. Your premium is included with your monthly loan payment.

  • Eligibility is simplified. You can obtain Payment Protection up to the age of 70 (credit life insurance) and age 65 (credit disability insurance). A medical exam is usually not required, although general health questions may be asked.


If you are applying for a loan now, be sure to get this coverage by checking “yes” on your application. If you already have a loan with us and are interesting in protecting that loan, please call 888-619-1711 to learn more about this valuable coverage.


GAP Insurance
You have a wreck and your insurance company pays you $10,000 for the damage to your totaled car - but, you still owe $15,000 on the car! GAP insurance will pay you the difference and protect your investment and your wallet.
