*APR = Annual Percentage Rate. All home lending products are subject to credit and property approval.  

Home Equity Lines of Credit: The adjustable rate APR may increase or decrease based on the highest Prime Rate published in the Money Rates column of the Wall Street Journal.

The Annual Percentage Rate does not include costs other than interest. The Annual Percentage Rate is based on the value of an index.  The index is the Wall Street Journal 'Prime Rate', as stated in the Wall Street Journal on the last working day of the preceding month.  To determine the Annual Percentage Rate that will apply to your account, we add a margin to the value of the index.  Your margin will be determined based on your approved credit limit, according to the following schedule.  Rate Changes: The annual percentage rate can change monthly on the first of each month.  The maximum Annual Percentage Rate that can apply is 18%. The Annual Percentage Rate will not fall below 3.00% during the Plan.  Property insurance is required; if the collateral is determined to be in an area having special flood hazards, flood insurance will be required as well. Property must be in Florida.  Available on owner-occupied detached and attached primary and secondary residences. Not available on investment properties. Consult tax advisor for deductibility.  Membership eligibility required with $5 minimum in savings.

Your Mortgage Loan Originator and the SAFE Act

What is SAFE Act?

The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act of 2008, known as the SAFE Act, is a federal law designed to protect consumers and reduce fraud. 

The law requires every mortgage loan originator to be registered in the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry (NMLSR). Each registered Mortgage Loan Originator receives a unique ID number that never changes, even if the individual changes employers. This NMLSR ID makes it easier for consumers to find information on their Mortgage Loan Originator. 

University Credit Union’s ID

Each agency-regulated financial institution, including University Credit Union, is assigned its own entity ID in the registry. University Credit Union’s NMLSR ID is 1133757. 

Member Service Representatives working for University Credit Union have their own unique Mortgage Loan Originator IDs.  Find your University Credit Union mortgage loan originator or enter all or part of the mortgage loan originator’s name and location at the NMLS Consumer Access Site.

You put a lot into your home. Now make it work for you!
