What are Deposit Secured Loans?

Deposit secured loans are excellent ways to leverage your savings to unlock more financial freedom. They can also help build your credit history and improve your credit score, opening up more opportunities for future borrowing needs. How it works: you’ll secure your new loan with a specific type of collateral: a Greater Nevada Share Certificate or funds in your Share Savings account.

Share Secured Loan

A Share Secured Loan is issued by freezing the funds in your Share Savings account. Pledged funds gradually and automatically release as you make on-time loan payments to pay down the loan balance. The maximum loan amount is up to 100% of the funds available in the account, and maximum loan term is up to 120 months.
