Secured Loan FAQs

You’ll need to provide the following information on your loan application:

  • Date of birth 

In some cases, we may ask for additional information after you submit your application.  

With a secured loan, we use the money in your Alaska USA Savings or Certificate Account as collateral for your loan. This means that if you can’t make your loan payments, we will use the money in your Savings or Certificate Account to pay back the loan. 

Because they are secured by collateral, secured loans typically have lower interest rates that unsecured loans. 

If you’ve had credit problems, you may have difficulty qualifying for an unsecured loan. Secured loans are easier to qualify for than unsecured loans because the money in your Alaska USA Savings or Certificate Account acts as collateral for your loan.  

Taking out a secured loan and making all of your payments on time can help you rebuild your credit, establish a positive credit history, and improve your credit score. 

To apply for a secured personal loan, you need to have an Alaska USA Savings or Certificate Account, which acts as collateral for your loan. If you don’t have an Alaska USA Savings or Certificate Account, you can apply for an unsecured personal loan, or you can become a member and open an Alaska USA Savings or Certificate Account.
