SFCU members are eligible for unsecured loans (also known as signature loans). Unsecured loans are loans without collateral, meaning they are not tied to personal property. Unlike with a traditional secured loan, if a borrower defaults on an unsecured loan then the creditor will not seize an automobile, home or other personal property as payment. In a secured loan, a borrower would sign contracts tying the loan to an asset.
