Build up savings for peace of mind
How do you cope with surprise expenses? Paying with a credit card helps in the short term but must be paid back—with interest, if you carry a balance. Prepare for future emergencies by setting aside savings on a regular basis, even if it’s a small amount each pay. If you tend to spend your entire paycheck, open a Holiday Savings account and treat it as a “deposit-only” account. For other free budgeting strategies, contact Accel Members Financial Counseling.

Use home equity to pay for major expenses
Your home is not just a place to live. It can help make everyday living more comfortable, when you pay for bigticket items with a SECU home equity line of credit. Once your line of credit is established, simply write a check or use your Platinum Equity credit card to pay for tuition, home improvements or bill consolidation. With rates as low as 7.75% APR*, borrowing is more affordable than with higher interest loans. As you pay off what you’ve borrowed, your equity becomes available to use again. Since the interest paid on a home equity line is generally tax deductible, get the biggest tax break by using your home equity line of credit for larger expenses.* (Ask your tax advisor about your situation.) To apply for a home equity line of credit with no closing costs, visit or any SECU branch.* Or call 410-487-7328 or 800-879-7328 (option 3) any time.
* APR = Annual Percentage Rate. Rates as low as 7.75% APR. Line of credit rates as low as Prime minus 1/2% with a floor rate of 3.50% APR and a ceiling rate of 18.00% APR; Prime rate is obtained from The Wall Street Journal, was 8.25% as of 7/24/06 and may change. The actual rate is determined by application and credit history. The rate is variable and can adjust on a monthly basis. Minimum initial draw is $20,000; up to 80% Loan to Value (LTV). Credit lines up to 100% LTV also available. SECU advances costs for appraisal, credit reports and closing costs on your first SECU Home Equity Line of Credit (one per primary/secondary residence), subject to credit history. Closing costs range from $850 to $1,000 on a $20,000 line of credit. Adequate property insurance and flood insurance required, if applicable. If loan is paid off within 24 months of original note date, closing costs must be reimbursed to SECU by borrower. Consult your tax advisor for deductibility of interest. Offer, including rates, is subject to change without notification.

No nearby SECU ATM?

Use Allpoint instead!
Why pay the $2 (or more) surcharge fee that many banks charge when you use their ATMs to withdraw cash from your SECU checking account? Instead, use a convenient Allpoint ATM—there’s no surcharge or SECU fee when you withdraw money from your Premier, Choice or Students’ Choice checking account. There are nearly 900 Allpoint network ATMs in Maryland, and more than 32,000 across the United States. Try our online Allpoint ATM locator at to find an Allpoint ATM wherever you’re headed.
