MAY BE A GOOD CHOICE IF

  • You need to cover unexpected expenses, like car or home repairs or medical bills
  • You want a revolving credit line that allows funds to be borrowed, repaid, and borrowed again
  • Trade-off: Interest rate is generally higher than a loan secured with collateral (such as your home)

So, what exactly is a line of credit?

A line of credit is money you have at the ready when you need it. You will be approved to draw up to a certain amount on the line of credit, and then you pay interest on what you borrow. If it turns out you don’t need to use the money, you are not charged interest. So you borrow the money by transferring it to your Elements checking account, pay it back, and then borrow it again if and when you need it.

How do I access the funds?

You can access funds simply and easily by transferring funds from your EZ Line of Credit to your Elements checking account within Online Banking.

You can access as much or a little as you need from your Line of Credit, whenever you need it, up to the credit limit established at closing. Much like a credit card that allows you to borrow against your spending limit as often as needed, the EZ Line of Credit gives you the flexibility to borrow against your credit line, repay, and repeat.

How does an EZ Line of Credit compare to other choices for unexpected expenses?

There are benefits and trade-offs to all loans, especially when it comes to paying for unexpected expenses.

How is an EZ Line of Credit used for overdraft protection?

An Elements EZ Line of Credit can serve as money set aside for unexpected expenses, such as an overdraft. Money automatically transfers from your EZ Line of Credit to match the exact amount of your checking account overdraft. Once the money is transferred away from the EZ Line of Credit, you have a monthly payment of 3% of the outstanding balance. Your credit line can be between $500 and $2,500, and your overdraft coverage would be up to the limit you have established. You don’t pay interest on a line of credit until or if you take money from it, so this can act as a good safety net for those unexpected expenses.

The cost per transfer is $5 plus 3% interest on your Line of Credit balance.

To get started, open an EZ Line of Credit and then contact Elements at 1-800-621-2105 to connect the line of credit with your checking account to establish overdraft protection.
