Lifestyle Loans (previously known as Signature Loans)
Every member has a unique lifestyle and we understand that sometimes there are extra expenses. We make the process easy so you don't have to turn to high-interest credit cards or payday loans. Lifestyle Loans are designed to fit your need, whether it's for an unexpected life event or something more, well... unique.

Why a Lifestyle Loan instead of a credit card or payday loan?
Credit card companies often encourage small monthly payments, which keeps balances high and interest charges rising. In some cases making the minimum payments of 2-3% of the balance could take 7-10 years or more (and a whole lot of interest) to pay off the debt! Many consumers find it difficult to ever get out of the debt cycle. Lifestyle loans are a better choice for many people because the low, fixed payments are designed to help you use credit wisely and get it paid off in a reasonable amount of time.
