I received a loan from AFFCU when my finances were in trouble.  I was denied a loan by other institutions. Not only did AFFCU approve my loan, but gave me the best interest rate. I was able to pay the loan in full, not missing a payment. Many thanks to AFFCU for the outstanding customer service. Member for life.

FAQs About Maryland Personal Loans

Unsecured personal loans do not use any of your assets as collateral for the funds borrowed. Your lender simply assesses your creditworthiness and decides that you’re likely to repay the funds.

Secured personal loans use your cash funds as collateral for the funds borrowed because your credit score isn’t good enough or you don’t have an established credit history.

  • The collateral could be a cash deposit or the funds in your Savings or Certificate Account.
  • If you don’t make your payments, your lender can keep your cash funds in lieu of you repaying your loan.
  • Secured loans are a great way to build or repair credit, though missed payments will negatively affect your credit score.
  • Other types of secured loan options include an auto loan (secured by your car) and a mortgage (secured by your home).

Secured loans tend to have lower rates than unsecured loans but the rate may depend on your credit report and financial situation, including your debt-to-income ratio (DTI).

Yes, unlike an auto loan or home loan, a personal loan gives you funds to use for anything you need and want. Common uses for a personal loan include:

  • Tuition and education expenses
  • Home improvements
  • Car repairs
  • New appliances
  • Dental and medical bills
  • Vacations and weddings
  • Unexpected expenses and emergency funds

You can also use your personal loan as a debt consolidation loan to pay off your high-interest credit card debt and other loans, so you have one simple monthly payment.

A personal loan is a type of installment loan offering these benefits:

  • You get a lump sum payment and choose your ideal repayment term.
  • You then make equal monthly payments until the loan is paid off in full.
  • Personal loans tend to have fixed rates and shorter loan terms get lower rates.
  • A fixed interest rate and fixed loan payment amount mean budgeting is simple.

In contrast, a credit card is a type of revolving credit:

  • You can use the funds and pay down your balance in an endless cycle.
  • Your monthly payments will vary and rates are typically higher than for personal loans.

AFFCU does not charge a prepayment penalty if you want to pay your loan off early. You can be debt-free as soon as possible.

Plus, there is no loan origination fee.

Your personal loan funds will be deposited into your AFFCU Checking or Savings bank account the next business day after your approval. You can then withdraw your money using in-branch services or an ATM. You can also use your debit card or write a check for purchases, or transfer funds using Online and Mobile Banking tools.

To withdraw your Personal Loan funds:

  • Our Hunt Valley Branch is located at: 40 Shilling Road, Hunt Valley, MD 21031.
  • An additional AFFCU ATM is located within MedStar Good Samaritan Hospital at 5601 Loch Raven Blvd, Baltimore, MD, 21239.
  • AFFCU members can use any CO-OP ATM nationwide, with no surcharge.

In addition, AFFCU has reciprocal agreements with other credit unions in the Baltimore Metro area of Maryland, so you will be not charged a fee to use any of these ATMS:

  • Baltimore County Employees Federal Credit Union
  • First Financial Federal Credit Union
  • Five Star (formerly St. Agnes) Federal Credit Union
  • Freedom Federal Credit Union
  • Johns Hopkins Federal Credit Union
  • Securityplus Federal Credit Union
