Ways to pay your loan

  • Payroll Deduction

    If you have a loan with the credit union, payroll deduction is a convenient way to have your loan payments automatically deducted from your paycheck.

    To find out if you’re eligible for payroll deduction, contact your employer’s benefits department. If you already have payroll deduction set up with the credit union and want to set up automatic loan payments, call us at (818) 238-2900.

  • Automatic Transfers

    Automate transfer allow members to transfer funds within UMe accounts on a recurring schedule.

    You can set up an automatic transfer to make your loan payment, so you won’t have to think about it each month.

    To set up an automatic transfer, fill out our Share to Loan Transfer Form or give us a call at (818) 238-2900.

Mortgage FAQs

Prequalification is an estimation of how much mortgage you can afford based on your income, monthly debt, credit history and assets.

Preapproval is a commitment from the credit union to finance your home using the same financial information, as well as credit reports. A preapproval includes the total amount of money available for your loan.

Mortgage points allow for interest to be pre-paid, resulting in a lower rate loan. Each point represents one (1) percent of your mortgage loan amount.

PMI is insurance which lenders require for homes financed at above 80% Loan to Value (LTV). If you purchase a home with less than 20% down, you’ll need to pay PMI. The cost is based on the LTV premium multiplied by the loan amount, divided by 12.

To calculate Loan to Value (LTV), divide the outstanding loan amount by the appraised value of the property or purchase price.

A preapproved mortgage loan is valid for up to 60 days. After that, we will need to complete a second evaluation of your current financial situation including employment status, deposits and property value.

Your first payment is usually due within 30 days of closing. The actual date will be listed in your closing documents.
