Credit Strong
Instal accounts

Who are Instal accounts designed for?

Low Cost

Instal accounts are designed for consumers focused on ongoing, low-cost credit building.  Starting at just $28 a month, Instal accounts are our most affordable option to start building your credit.

Customizable

Customize your credit building to suit your goals. Instal accounts allow you to partially prepay, payoff, or close your account at any time with no fee or penalty.

Long Run

Length of credit history comprises 15% of your FICO® Score. Instal offers a way to keep a long tradeline on your profile and consistently build up a healthy length of credit history – up to 48 months.

Constantly replacing a 12-month credit builder loan is more costly and may dip your credit score each year. Every time the 12 month loan matures it will decrease your length of credit history.

Decreasing Cost

With Instal accounts, every month your interest cost goes down and your savings progress accelerates.

The tables below illustrate interest expense vs. savings progress for Instal 28, Instal 38, and Instal 48 accounts.
