Costly Payday Loans

A local news report was released on eight Utah credit unions participating in “payday” loans. Utah Community Credit Union does not offer these types of loans.

UCCU recognizes the challenges these historic economic times present to some of our members and finds success by following correct and time-tested lending practices and financially safe, fiscally conservative lending policies. UCCU has an excellent selection of loan products for members including auto loans, real estate, and traditional personal loans which all have great, low rates.

At UCCU we recognize that financially, life can take unexpected turns. That is why UCCU offers members free access to Balance Financial Counseling. This service offers solutions for those experiencing a financial crisis and practical information for those considering financial opportunities. Call (888) 456-2227 to receive counsel on money management, credit, housing topics, goal setting, spending and saving plans, credit and credit reports, debt management, bankruptcy prevention, buying a first home, and foreclosure prevention.
