Breaking it down, Credit Builder4 is a personal loan secured by a Certificate of Deposit (CD). You pay the loan back on time, and you start on the path to improving your score. It's that simple. If you're leery of banks, and more importantly, what they promise—we get it. The thing is, Credit Builder is different. Once approved, there's no down payment, and no need to wipe out your savings paying unreasonable fees. All we ask is that you're responsible and accountable. We'll handle reporting your payments to the credit bureaus, so you can focus on the real goal: Raising your credit score.

- Credit Builder Loan is subject to application, eligibility and credit qualification. Rates and terms are subject to change.

For example, late payments on utility bills, car loans or credit card accounts would negatively influence your credit score, even if your payments on a Credit Builder Loan are current.
- Failure to make required monthly minimum payments by the payment due date for the Credit Builder Loan will result in negative reporting to the credit bureau and will not improve your credit score.
- This product will not repair your credit, and negative credit history will not be removed from your credit report as a result of this program.
- Money Back Refund of interest paid requires that all Credit Builder loan payments must be made within 29 days of their due dates for the full five-year term.
