A line of credit gives you quick, convenient access your money, providing added spending power when you need it most. This versatile offering can protect your checking account against financial miscalculations, provide a little extra money to cover your daily expenses until your next payday and, depending on the limit, can help with large purchases. Your checking account can be directly linked to your personal line of credit, allowing you to automatically cover checks or debit card transactions. In addition, your personal line of credit is accessible from online and mobile banking, allowing you to transfer money quickly.
