Get Started

  • What can I use my personal loan for?

    You can use your personal loan for any purpose you like. It could be for one specific expense, or a variety of unexpected costs that you're currently facing.

    Common uses include home and car repairs, weddings, vacations, debt consolidation, and as a tool to build credit.

  • How long do I have to pay my loan back?

    You can choose from 61 days up to 60 months to repay your loan. Your monthly loan payment will be the same every month because we offer a fixed interest rate.

    There's no penalty if you choose to pay your loan off early.

  • What personal loan interest rates will I get?

    Your interest rate will be determined by your credit history. Much of your financial activity will affect your credit score, including your debt to income ratio. The higher your credit score, the better rate you'll get.

    If you don't feel confident about your credit score just yet, you could apply for a low-interest credit card and start building credit that way before you apply for a loan. A personal loan is a great stepping stone towards larger loans such as a mortgage.

  • Can I get a personal loan if I have bad credit?

    Unfortunately, if your credit is too low, you may not qualify for a loan at this time. But you could apply for one of our secured credit cards to get you back on track. Secured means that you make a cash deposit to serve as collateral for your credit card.

    Once you've established a good payment record, you may graduate to an unsecured credit card. Then, eventually, you'll qualify for a personal loan.

  • How can I access my personal loan funds?

    Your personal loan funds will be applied to your checking account. You'll be able to use the funds through bank transfers, peer-to-peer payment apps, your checkbook, or ATM withdrawals.

  • What if I don't live in Santa Clara?

    You can join CommonWealth Central CU if you live or work in Santa Clara Valley, if one of your family members is already a member, you live with a member, or you work for a participating CommonWealth Member Company.
