Welcome and thank you for learning more about your employer's Emergency Loan Program available through USE Credit Union.
A Helping Hand
An unexpected event or emergency expense can turn your budget upside down. The UC Emergency Loan Program from USE Credit Union offers a fast, affordable option to get the cash you need to help get back on your feet.
The Affordable Option
A smart alternative to costly payday loans or more expensive credit card debt, our emergency loans allow you to borrow from $500 to $5,000, with no collateral, a fixed interest rate, and a low, $25 loan origination fee.
Rates start at just 5.00% when you open a USECU checking account and set up direct deposit of your UC paycheck.*
Important Things to Know
Your actual rate will be determined based on your credit score, and can range from 5.00% to 12.50%. To qualify, you must also be continuously employed by the University of California for at least six months, working a minimum of 20 hours per week. Sufficient income is also required and you may be asked to provide a current paystub.

All loans subject to credit approval. Terms and conditions subject to change. *Assuming an interest rate of 5.00%, your monthly payment for 24 months on a $5,000 loan would be $150.62 with a corresponding APR of 5.338%. The APR is higher than the interest rate because it reflects the total cost of credit, including both interest paid and the $25.00 Origination Fee. Your rate will be .50% higher if you do not open a USECU checking account and set up direct deposit of your UC paycheck.
