Things you should consider before you apply for a personal loan.

Which is the best personal loan for you?

Secured Loan

Clearview's Secured Loans can help you rebuild your credit or make a purchase without draining your savings. With a variety of rates and terms to choose from, these personal loans make for easy budgeting.

Signature Loan

Available in up to 84-month terms at great rates, our Signature Loan can help when you need some extra cash for vacation, new appliances, consolidating debt, unexpected expenses, or many other needs you may have.

PowerLine Line of Credit

A PowerLine Line of Credit provides fast access to a cash reserve that can be used to pay for anything, any time. Use it to cover everyday expenses, as an emergency fund, or as checking account overdraft protection. Variable rates are based on your credit performance.

Better Choice Loan - Payday Loan Alternative

Payday lending institutions tend to offer loans with very high interest rates and short repayment periods. Our Better Choice Loan is more user-friendly. You can quickly obtain funds to pay for everything from doctor bills and car repairs to rental deposits and childcare expenses with simple qualifications.

What are the advantages of a credit union personal loan?

Unlike most larger financial institutions, credit unions are non-profit and without shareholders. As such, a credit union personal loan offers more flexible payment terms and lower interest rates. At Clearview, our vision is to help you enjoy a better life which is what we aim to do in every interaction with our members.

What if I am unable to pay my loan?

Borrowing money involves taking on a financial responsibility. If a wage-earned in your home lost their job, became disabled, or even passed away, would you be able to continue making monthly payments? Clearview's Borrower Security Program offers protection products for minimal cost that can be rolled into your monthly loan payments.
