What is a personal loan?
An unsecured personal loan is a type of loan that doesn't require collateral, such as a house or car, to secure the loan. Borrowers receive funds based on factors like creditworthiness and income, with fixed interest rates and repayment terms.

How can I use a personal loan?
Here are some common reasons people take out personal loans:

  • Funding a wedding celebration
  • Financing home repairs or improvements
  • Consolidating high-interest credit card debt or other loans
  • Handling unforeseen medical or insurance expenses

Setting savings goals is a wise strategy. However, if you find yourself short on funds, a personal loan might be a sensible option. This is especially true when the monthly payments are more manageable compared to alternative forms of credit, such as credit cards, and you can comfortably afford the payments throughout the loan term.

Personal loan features include:

  • Breaking down large expenses into more manageable, monthly payments
  • Paying the same fixed-rate amount every month
  • Fixed repayment terms of 3 and 5 years
  • Easy auto-pay options to assist keeping you on track4
  • No pre-payment penalty
  • Ability to manage your loan online

FAQs

{beginAccordion h2}

How much can I borrow with a personal loan?

You can borrow between $1,000 and $50,000 (in increments of $100). Your loan amount will be determined based on your application request, credit score, income, and other information provided in your loan application. Not all applicants will qualify for the full loan amount requested.2

Will checking rates or applying for a personal loan affect my credit score?

To check your rate in advance of completing your application, Fidelity Bank conducts a soft credit pull, which will not affect your credit score. If you complete the application process after receiving a rate, we will request your full credit report from one or more consumer reporting agencies using a hard credit pull, which may affect your credit.

Am I eligible for a Personal Loan?

Loan eligibility is dependent on a number of factors, including confirmation of Louisiana residence, credit score, income, and additional information provided in your loan application.

Do I pay a fee if I pay off my loan early?

No. There is no prepayment penalty for paying off a Personal Loan by Fidelity Bank before its maturity.

How quickly can I pay off my loan?

Ultimately, you can reduce how much you pay toward your personal loan, if you calculate the right amount of money to pay each month. This calculator will help you see how long it will take to pay off your personal loan using your loan’s interest rate and the amount owed.

First, enter the balance for your personal loan and a down payment amount. Then, adjust the Loan Term and Interest Rate sliders to reflect the details on your personal loan. When finished, adjust the Added Monthly Amount slider to reflect how much you can save by paying above the minimum payment.

1When you check your rate, we perform a soft inquiry on your credit report. This initial “soft” inquiry will not affect your credit score. If you complete the application process, we will perform a “hard” credit inquiry which may impact your credit score. If you accept a loan, repayment information will be reported to the credit bureaus.
