Personal Line of Credit

A personal line of credit is a pre-approved, unsecured line of credit. When you would like to withdraw funds, complete one of the provided checks. You can use this check to deposit money in an account or pay a third party for a purchase.

Alternatively, you may request the line be used as overdraft protection on your Independent Bank checking account at the time of your application.

With a line of credit, you only pay interest on the amount you use, when you use it.  The line can be paid down at any time and drawn on again up to the credit limit as long as the account remains in good standing.

Unsecured Loan
This is a loan that isn’t secured by collateral, and your ability to qualify is based on how creditworthy you are. It can be a good option for small home improvement projects, and can provide savings if your alternative is a credit card, which almost always carries a higher interest rate than an Independent Bank unsecured loan.
Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC)

A home equity loan or line of credit will allow you to borrow money secured by the equity in your home. Use the extra cash for whatever you choose: home improvements, tuition, debt consolidation and more. Interest may even be tax-deductible. We offer competitive interest rates and, with approved credit, loan amounts up to 90% of your home’s value!

You can use the Equity Access MasterCard to withdraw money from your home equity line of credit. It’s the card that works just like a Debit MasterCard for purchases and ATM withdrawals; it’s convenient and hassle-free. Unlike credit card advances, HELOC funds accessed with your Equity Access Card are not assessed cash advance fees.

Boat, Auto, and RV Loans

With our deep roots in Michigan, we understand how important it is to get out on the water or hop in an RV to enjoy our great state. Whether you need a 12’ fishing boat or a 40’ RV, we offer low rates and attractive financing terms. Also, we’re often able to save you money if you refinance your boat or RV through Independent Bank.

We always have great rates on auto loans as well, and we’ll help you get your loan quickly and conveniently. Simply apply online or stop by a branch to speak with a lender.

Borrow responsibly

We encourage students and families to start with savings, grants, scholarships, and federal student loans to pay for college. Students and families should evaluate all anticipated monthly loan payments, and how much the student expects to earn in the future, before considering a private student loan.

 

These loans are made by Sallie Mae Bank or a lender partner. Independent Bank is not the creditor for these loans and is compensated by Sallie Mae for the referral of loan customers.

 

Smart Option Student Loan and graduate loan products: These loans are for students at participating degree-granting schools. Smart Option Student Loan information is for undergraduates only. Graduate Certificate/Continuing Education coursework is not eligible for MBA, Medical, Dental, and Law School Loans. Students who are not U.S. citizens or U.S. permanent residents must reside in the U.S., attend a participating school in the U.S., apply with a creditworthy cosigner (who must be a U.S. citizen or U.S. permanent resident) and provide an unexpired government-issued photo ID to verify their identity. Applications are subject to a requested minimum loan amount of $1,000. Current credit and other eligibility criteria apply.

 

1 Although we do not charge a penalty or fee if you prepay your loan, any prepayment will be applied as outlined in your promissory note—first to Unpaid Fees and costs, then to Unpaid Interest, and then to Current Principal.

Student Loan Consolidation Product
We offer student loan consolidation options that allow college graduates to combine all of their outstanding student debt into one easy-to-manage monthly payment. With competitive rates on an unsecured loan up to $50,000, and a fixed term up to 15 years, Independent Bank’s Student Loan Consolidation product is the smart choice for graduates who have completed their degree and have been employed for at least two years.
Certificate of Deposit (CD) Secured Loan

This is a loan that is secured by a certificate of deposit that you own. It’s a convenient and low-cost way to obtain a loan quickly, and it generally carries a lower interest rate than an unsecured loan.

Normal Credit standards and restrictions apply. Consult your tax advisor regarding deductibility of interest.
