Fixed-Rate Loan Option

Does a Fixed-Rate Loan Option make sense for you?

Enjoy the predictability of fixed payments when you convert some or all of the balance on your variable-rate home equity line of credit (HELOC) to a Fixed-Rate Loan Option. Your fixed rate won't change for the selected term — which means you're protected from the possibility of rising interest rates.

Existing HELOC customers: If you have questions about your account, please call customer service for more information at 800.934.5626 (Monday –Friday 8 a.m. –9 p.m. ET).

How a Fixed-Rate Loan Option may save on interest payments

  • Transfer higher interest-rate credit card or installment loan balances from other financial institutions to your HELOC — and then set up a Fixed-Rate Loan Option to pay off the balances

  • Protect against rising interest rates. If variable rates on your HELOC balance move above the fixed rate of a Fixed-Rate Loan Option, you could pay less interest on the Fixed-Rate Loan Option balance.

Benefits of a Fixed-Rate Loan Option

  • Predictable monthly payments that stay the same for the selected term - never worry about the possibility of rising interest rates

  • No fees to convert your variable-rate HELOC balances to a Fixed-Rate Loan Option

  • Flexibility of maintaining up to 3 Fixed-Rate Loan Options at one time
