COMBO HELOC Benefits

Easy to Budget

With a fixed rate option, you can lock your HELOC balance for up to 10 years and plan your budget confidently with predictable monthly payments.

Lower Payments

HELOC rates are drastically lower than credit card rates, which save you money in the long run. Qualified borrowers have the additional option of interest-only payments. 

Convenient Banking

We've made managing your funds more convenient than ever. Easily access your funds through checks, Online Banking or by visiting a Georgia United branch or ATM

How it Works

Rates that fit your budget

You can choose to lock all or a portion of your Combo HELOC balance into a fixed rate with fixed monthly payments. Lock up to five portions at any one time for terms up to 10 years. As you repay the locked balances, your available line of credit amount increases and becomes available to use.

  • Minimum lock amount is $5,000
  • First rate lock is free and each additional lock is $50

In the early '70s, the credit union extended to me – a single woman under 30 – a mortgage that allowed me to buy a rundown house in the City of Decatur. That house is long paid for and worth a lot more in this rejuvenated town. Back in those days, no other financial institution would consider helping. I will always be grateful!

I just wanted to let you know that I’m in awe of Georgia United! I spoke to you ten days ago about applying for a HELOC and today we closed on it at the Stockbridge branch. This was the EASIEST and best thing I could have ever done! Every Georgia United employee we dealt with along the way, was very helpful, prompt, kind and a joy to deal with.

Every interaction I had with associates has been very positive for years!!! Never been disappointed. My recent home loan closing experience was perfect. The seller commented on how professional and on point the loan staff were.

Buying my first house and using the credit union was the best decision I made. They treated me well and showed how much they care.

Similar to a credit card, but different than a home equity loan, a HELOC provides you with a credit line that replenishes access to funds as you repay.
