We understand that unexpected expenses are a part of life, but they don't have to be a financial burden. With a line of credit (LOC) you can easily access funds when you need to without overdrawing your checking account or depleting your savings.
A line of credit is essentially a pre-approved loan that provides you with funds as needed up to a set limit. LOCs are commonly used as overdraft protection on a checking account, but are also beneficial if you expect to have on-going expenses that don't require a large amount upfront.
You can also link to your line of credit to your LSCU Checking account for overdraft protection. When your checking is overdrawn using a debit card or check, funds will be automatically transferred from your line of credit. You can withdraw cash from your LOC by choosing the "withdraw from credit card" option at ATMs. Debit cardholders can use up to $500 in LOC funds daily.
