Loans

Any member of Corporate America Credit Union may request a Line of Credit, or other loan product.  For loans CACU requires the appropriate agreement(s) and your credit union’s most recent monthly internal financial statements and a copy of the most recent annual Supervisory Committee audit report, CPA certified financials (including footnotes) with auditor’s report (opinion) or league prepared audit report.

Your credit union's LOC is calculated based on its asset size, payment activity and historical financial performance. Each line is reviewed and updated annually to keep up with your credit union's changing needs. There is an annual LOC underwriting fee assessed in October for those members that are not considered capitalized members of CACU.  Once established, your credit union can conveniently access its LOC whenever necessary through either short or long-term loans.

For more information, please contact Corporate America at (205) 313-4300 or (800) 292-6242 or email loans@corpam.org.
 


Demand Loan

Corporate America's Demand Loan is a variable rate loan available, upon request, to those member credit unions who maintain a current LOC.  Similar to the settlement loan, the demand loan was created to assist members in managing short-term liquidity. Designed as an overnight advance tool, rates are subject to change daily. 

This advance is executed with only a phone call to Corporate America. For further information, or to request an advance, log into our Account Management System (AMS) or contact Corporate America at (205) 313-4300 or (800) 292-6242.


Settlement Loan

The Settlement Loan is an overnight loan with no maturity.  Rates are subject to change daily, with interest due at maturity or, at a minimum, monthly. This product automatically covers overdrafts to ensure outgoing payment can still be made, and to bring a negative balance in your Corporate Funds settlement account to zero, after all transactions have been posted for the day.

Corporate America offers access to the Federal Reserve Discount window to all members with a line of credit at Corporate America.  Interested members with no Federal Reserve relationship will need to file forms with both their regional Federal Reserve Bank and CACU.
