CEFCU offers low interest rates, but is your credit score high enough?

Whether you're applying for an auto, mortgage, or personal loan, CEFCU has extremely competitive rates.

The problem? You need good credit; really good credit (if you want your best rates).

Your first step to determine if you're eligible for top-tier rates is to pull your Credit Report. You can review your Credit Report and find every inaccurate (and can potentially get removed), or contact a Credit Repair company, like Credit Glory, to walk you through that entire process.

You can schedule a free consultation with Credit Glory, or call one of their Credit Specialists, here (800-807-4388 ➔).
