Thumbs up for ScoreUp

Our ScoreUp Loan is here to help if you have no credit, little credit or may need some help improving your credit score. By making manageable monthly payments on-time, you’ll be establishing a positive credit history, while also growing your savings.

How a credit builder loan is different from a traditional loan

Traditional Loan

  • Established credit history is required and can be more difficult to qualify
  • Interest rates can be high without good credit
  • When your loan funds, the money is given to you
  • You make payments until the loan is paid off
 

ScoreUp Loan

  • You do not need credit history to qualify
  • Interest rates are low
  • When your loan funds, the money is placed on hold and held as collateral in a ScoreUp Savings Account
  • You make monthly payments until the loan is paid off and then you have access to the money in your ScoreUp Savings Account

  • Loan amounts from $500 to $5,000
  • No fee to open or set up the loan
  • Choose a term that works for you to pay off the loan – from 6 to 36 months
  • Patelco Payment Assistance – Never be late on your ScoreUp Loan
  • Fixed low rate at 3.95% APR1
  • Apply with little or no credit history, no cosigner required
  • Loan proceeds are deposited into a ScoreUp Savings Account

Loan proceeds are deposited into a ScoreUp Savings Account and will be available when loan is paid in full. Automatic payments from a Patelco account are required.*

How it works

  1. Apply for a loan amount with a manageable payment and keep your savings goal in mind.
  2. Choose how many months you want to pay off the loan. 
  3. Each payment builds your credit history and your savings.
  4. Get your money after paying off your loan. You can check your current credit score with one of the three credit bureaus.
  5. Apply for another ScoreUp Loan if you want to do more to build your credit and grow your savings.
