Using the equity you have in your home as collateral, a Home Equity Line of Credit, also known as a HELOC1, offers you the flexibility to draw on a variable line of credit line whenever you need it.2 It functions much like a credit card with your line of credit replenishing when you pay off your outstanding balance. Unlike a loan, you won't need to pay interest on untapped funds. Therefore, you decide both how much and when you need to draw from this source of funds while taking advantage of HELOC interest rates that are typically lower than credit card rates.3

1 All HELOC annual percentage rates, regardless of state residence are variable, based on the Wall Street Journal Prime Rate, “the Index”, published in the Money Rates section, plus a stated margin. Check rates for current Index. The APR may change on the first day of each calendar quarter, January, April, July, and October. Changes in APR can only occur if “the Index” has changed since the last rate change. The minimum is 4.00% and the maximum is 18.00%. APR is Annual Percentage Rate.
