How Personal Loans Work

Personal loans are unsecured loans, which means you don’t need to pledge any collateral to receive funds. They are simple to apply for and may be used for a range of purposes.

After you are approved for a personal loan, you receive the money in one lump sum, which you then pay back in installments.

UW Credit Union personal loans feature:

  • Low rates - Typically, personal loans have lower rates than credit cards, making them a great option for those looking to consolidate high-rate debt.
  • Fixed terms - Your loan’s rate, term and amount of money are all fixed. Rest easy knowing your payments will stay the same and your rate won’t go up.
  • No hidden fees - We provide clear terms and zero surprise fees. You can feel confident that you are getting the right loan for your budget and needs.

Ways to Use a Personal Loan

Personal loans can be used for a variety of needs, including:

  • Debt consolidation
  • Home improvements
  • Medical bills
  • Moving expenses
  • Education costs
  • Vehicle purchase or repair
  • Adoption expenses
  • Infertility treatment
  • Wedding costs
  • Vacation or travel
  • Emergency expenses
  • Other large purchases
