Velocity Community’s Secured VISA is a credit builder card designed to help those just starting out as well as those looking to rebuild their credit. You can choose either a Platinum or Rewards credit card at the best rate available.
To secure the card, a special account is opened to hold your deposit. The deposit money is on hold as security for the credit balance on the card. For example, if you want a credit limit of $1000, then you would deposit $1000 to the new account. The deposited money is held in case of a default (more than one missed payment). We do not pay for purchases from those funds, nor will we make payments from them.
Here are some of the features:
- Deposit as much or as little4 as you like. Your credit limit is equal to the amount of your deposit.
- The money continues to earn dividends just as if it were being held in your savings account.
- Receive a monthly bill and make payments as you would any other credit card.
- Paying on time every month will help build good credit.
- With good payment history, you may request that we modify your account to a non-secured card. Once approved, we will return your deposit to you.
You can manage your account online through Online Banking by enrolling your card on the credit card page.
