If you are looking to safely establish or improve your credit score, consider a North Shore Bank Credit Builder Loan.

How it Works

Once you apply and are approved for a Credit Builder Loan, the amount you borrow is held in a Certificate of Deposit account while you make monthly payments. When the loan is paid in full, you have access to the funds in the Certificate of Deposit plus accrued interest. Along with a boosted credit score, you have built up savings while repaying the loan.*

Helping You Build Credit

The key to the Credit Builder Loan is making your on-time monthly payments, the purpose of which is to demonstrate your ability to manage debt. In turn, this gets reported to the credit bureau and helps you establish or build your credit score.

As you can see from this graphic from FICO, your payment history makes up 35% of how your credit score is calculated and is the biggest factor in establishing good credit.

The rate on your line of credit changes on the 1st day of the second month following any prime rate change. If your line of credit was opened prior to Jan. 1, 2006, it is based on the prime rate published in the Wall Street Journal Money Rates section on the third Tuesday of the month. If your line of credit was opened on or after Jan. 1, 2006, the rate on your line of credit will change when the prime rate changes in the Wall Street Journal.
