What about repayments?
Whenever you take a loan you sign a promissory note (a legally binding document) agreeing to pay off your loan within a specified period of time.
The maximum period for loans with Pomeroy Credit Union is 5 years and we always recommend that Members complete their loan as quickly as possible in order to minimise the amount of interest they pay.
Pomeroy Credit Union considers itself to be an understanding lender, so if your circumstances change and you experience difficulties meeting your agreed repayments, it’s very important that you contact the credit union office to discuss your situation.
If you don’t contact us and you either stop making payments on your account, or you pay less than the agreed amount, we will assume not that you can’t make payments, but that you won’t. If you do not meet the repayments on your loan, your account will go into arrears. This may affect your credit rating. That being the case we are obliged to pursue the outstanding monies on behalf of the other Members of Pomeroy Credit Union.
Any loan over the share value will require a guarantor. If a friend or family member asks you to act as guarantor for them, please make sure you fully understand the commitment you are making.
Effectively, you are signing a legal document to say that if this person defaults on their loan, you are willing to take responsibility for it. Consider long and hard as to whether you feel this person will keep up repayments, even if their circumstances change.
What is the interest on Loans?
Pomeroy Credit Union charge 1% per month on the reducing balance of a loan. This Credit Union endeavours to give a rebate on loan interest paid which depends on the annual surplus available in each financial year, therefore loans may cost less than 12.68% APR. Credit Unions do not charge fees or transaction charges. Since interest is charged only on the outstanding balance of the loan, you will pay less interest if you repay your loan in a shorter time than planned. Thus the Credit Union gives you control over your finances even when you are a borrower.
