ReadyLine of Credit FAQs

The ReadyLine of Credit is an open-end line of credit. You can take cash advances in any amount up to your available credit limit. You can also re-borrow, up to your available credit limit, as payments are made. The size of each cash advance determines the manner in which it is repaid. Cash advances of $2,000 or greater are repaid in monthly installment payments over a period of 48 months (available on approved lines of $2,000 or more). Cash advances of less than $2,000 are part of a revolving balance with a monthly minimum payment, similar to a credit card.
Payments are automatically applied in the following order: 
1. Interest and principal due on each monthly installment payment,
2. Interest and fees due on the revolving balance portion of your account,
3. Remaining portion of the revolving balance,
4. Then to the installment principal balance
