General Information

We have money to lend! Both personal (unsecured) and secured loans are available for any provident and productive purpose. From vehicles to Visa, we have a loan for you. Our lending policy is to offer preferred rates to members with excellent credit while still offering competitive rates to members trying to improve their credit records. Check your credit report now.

Benefits of Borrowing from Your Credit Union
      Rates are always stated in annual terms as annual percentage rates.
      Interest is charged only on the declining balance.
      There's no prepayment penalty.
      You can make automatic repayments through direct deposit or payroll deduction.
      Loan protection and disability insurance are available. (Disability insurance is offered through the Family Security Plan®, along with life insurance and cancer insurance. While D.C. Teachers Federal Credit Union has established a relationship with the Family Security Plan to provide services to DCTFCU members, we are not responsible for their services. If any problems arise with their services, you will need to address your concerns directly to them.)

Types of Loans Available
      Personal (Signature) Loan
      New and Used Car and Truck
      Motorcycle, RV, Travel Trailer and Camper
      Line of Credit (Secured or Unsecured)
      Share Pledged Loan
      Home Improvement

Qualifying Criteria
To qualify for a loan, you must:
      be a member in good standing
      maintain a share balance of at least $100
      maintain any other Credit Union loans current (no delinquency)
      be legally qualified to enter into a binding agreement
      demonstrate an ability to save
      submit a complete application and current payroll statement
      have a favorable employment and credit history

In some cases, there may be additional requirements depending upon the type and amount of loan requested. Membership alone is a not sufficient basis for granting a loan; there is no unqualified right to a DCTFCU loan.

If you've filed for bankruptcy in the past, we cannot grant you a loan unless you've had a good credit rating for the past two years. If our credit union suffered a loss as a result of your bankruptcy, you're no longer eligible for credit and no longer eligible to be a co-maker for other members' loans.

Our Skip-A-Payment program lets members choose one month to skip their monthly loan payment. Keep the cash for some other purpose! Apply now!
