First you'll want to determine how much money you want to secure in the loan. You'll also need to decide how long you want to repay the loan. To increase the chances of a positive impact on your credit score, speak to a lending specialist for minimum term recommendations.

Secondly, decide which type of secured loan you want to do. You can save time by opening the account and depositing your funds into it. Make notes of the account information so you can reference it when you apply for the loan.

Lastly, apply for the loan online and fill in all of the necessary details for the application. Once your loan funds, you will get all of your due dates and details so you can start making repayment arrangements.
In most cases we can fund your loan the same day!
If you don't need to access your money right away, a CD is a better choice because the interest rates you receive from a CD are higher than a savings account. If you need your money readily available, you might prefer a savings account.
Generally, the answer is yes. Since the loan is secured with your own money, there is a good chance of approval for those looking for a secured loan for bad credit scores in Texas.
It's our way of providing you some financial relief when you need it by allowing you to skip one payment on a qualified loan per year. "Qualified" means your payments must be up-to-date and you must have made at least four payments prior to skipping. Check out the details of Skip-A-Pay.
