Personal Loans

Signature Loans

A signature loan is an unsecured loan that only requires your signature without further collateral. Signature loans can be used for financing larger purchases, unexpected expenses, or debt consolidations. DFDFCU offers signature loans with competitive fixed rates and loan terms from 1 to 4 years.

Risk-based pricing and standard credit qualifications apply. All loans are subject to final credit approval.

Overdraft Line of Credit

The Overdraft Line of Credit is an unsecured line of credit that is linked to your checking account. If ever a transaction will overdraw your checking account, the overdraft line of credit is advanced to cover the transaction and protects you from being charged NSF fees and return item fees. Payments are due monthly when there is an outstanding balance on the loan.

Risk-based pricing and standard credit qualifications apply. All loans are subject to final credit approval.

Secured Loans

Share Secured Loan

Share secured loans are loans that are fully secured by your Share Savings or Money Market account at DFDFCU. This is a great way to maintain the balance in your account, plus you continue to earn interest on the savings pledged as collateral. A share secured loan can help you rebuild credit, finance expenses without depleting your reserves, or help to establish credit. Share secured loans can be obtained for terms up to 10 years and rates are based on the rate of the share securing the loan.

Certificate of Deposit Secured Loan

Certificate of Deposit secured loans is fully secured by your Certificate of Deposit (CD) at DFDFCU. The interest rate is based on the dividend rate you currently are earning on your certificate, and the terms of the loan equal the term of your CD. Like a share secured loan, a CD secured loan can help you establish credit, rebuild credit, or finance expenses without depleting your reserves.
