What is a Credit-Builder Loan?

A credit-builder loan holds the amount borrowed in a bank account while you make payments, building credit. You will choose an amount that comes with an interest rate, a term (the length of the loan in months or years), and a set monthly payment.

The monthly payment is split between interest and repayment of the money borrowed (principal). The payment split includes more interest at the beginning of the loan and more principal near the end. A car loan or home mortgage are common types of installment loans.

How soon can my credit score go up?

Your credit profile and your associated credit score are uniquely you. How quickly your credit profile improves and the impact on the score will vary, but the best thing you can do is make on-time payments and keep building your profile.

Could this negatively impact my credit score?

Occasionally, adding a new line of credit to your credit profile will cause a slight temporary dip in your credit score because it may reduce the overall age of your credit history. In this case, it’s typical for your credit score to quickly rebound and increase with on-time payment history for the CreditStrong account loan.

Can I cancel at anytime?

Occasionally, adding a new line of credit to your credit profile will cause a slight temporary dip in your credit score because it may reduce the overall age of your credit history. In this case, it’s typical for your credit score to quickly rebound and increase with on-time payment history for the CreditStrong account loan.

You may cancel or close your CreditStrong account at any time with no prepayment or early termination fee. Please note that any payments received more than 30 days late will be reported as ‘late’ to the credit bureaus.

When canceling or closing your account you should be aware that payment history is the most important factor for your FICO credit score and by closing your account early you will reduce the number of payments reported to the credit bureaus, potentially reducing the positive impact of the CreditStrong Account loan on your credit score.
