A Personal Line of Credit works similarly to a credit card. You can use money from your credit line for whatever you need. As you use the funds, you will need to repay what you borrowed along with interest on the amount you borrowed. Interest rates tend to be lower than the interest rate of a credit card. This can make borrowing from a personal credit line a better choice for making big purchases. For example, if you need to pay contractors over a period of time for a home project, you can access the funds as you need them and pay the balance down as you go. It also can be helpful when you have a commission-based salary in Hawaii and have fluctuating income. Our Personal Line of Credit is unsecured, meaning you won’t have to provide collateral.
Your Visa® card will be mailed to you 7 - 10 business days after your funds have been approved.
After receiving your card in the mail, follow the card activation instructions. We recommend changing your PIN upon activation.
Use your card at locations that accept Visa® cards. You can also use your card at ATMs. When using an ATM, select "Credit Card" to advance funds from your Personal Line of Credit (PLOC) or Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) account.
The first replacement of a lost, stolen or damaged card is free; after that, a replacement card is $20.
After your banker confirms that your line has been opened, you can access it by check or card, in the branch, or through ASB Online Banking on any device including online, tablet or mobile phone.
Both a Personal Line of Credit and a Personal Unsecured Loan provide Hawaii residents with funds when they need them. They have similar requirements in order to qualify, but there are several key differences between the two options. A Personal Line of Credit and Personal Unsecured Loan are paid out differently. A Personal Line of Credit is a revolving credit line. This means you can take out funds as you need them, instead of all at once. On the other hand, Personal Unsecured Loans are paid in a lump sum once you are approved for the loan.
Another major difference between Personal Lines of Credit and Personal Unsecured Loans is the method of repayment. Personal Lines of Credit generally have a minimum monthly payment, but you will only be required to pay back on what you borrow. For Personal Unsecured Loans, you will have a set monthly payment with a fixed interest rate.
