Signature Loan

As your San Diego credit union, we care that you are covered for life’s unexpected expenses. Personal loans are often referred to as a "signature" loan due to the borrower's signature serving as their guarantee to pay the loan back. SDCCU's signature loan is a specific personal loan that is unsecured, which is ideal for those unexpected expenses like car repairs, home repairs, medical bills, vacations or whatever else you may need. Upon qualification, you can borrow up to $10,000 using only your signature as collateral.
