Personal Loans

A Personal Loan is a secured loan or unsecured loan that is used for... pretty much anything you want. You can buy a car, pay for a wedding (or honeymoon), take the trip of a lifetime, create the ultimate home entertainment room in your house, or consolidate your existing debt to reduce your monthly payments.

 

We offer a variety of secured Personal Loans:

  • CD Secured—Term is the maturity of the CD, minimum loan $2,500
  • Stocks/Bonds Assignment—Maximum term 24 months, minimum loan $5,000
  • Stocks/Bonds Purchase—Publicly traded stocks, maximum term 24 months, minimum loan $5,000

We also offer:

  • Unsecured Personal Loans—Fixed rate, $2,500 minimum, 24-month maximum term

Home Equity Lines of Credit

The equity you have built in your home can help you obtain money for almost anything you need-fund a college education, pay for a wedding, take a great trip, get a new car, or maybe you'd just like to consolidate your bills.

  • Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) - A HELOC is very useful if you anticipate expenses over a period of time. During the draw period the payments due are interest-only*. This allows you to make discretionary principal payments at any time. You have up to 10 years to pay back the equity line upon the completion of your draw period.

Vehicle Loans

Columbia Bank offers a wide variety of loans for almost any kind of vehicle there is—from airplanes to ATVs. Vehicle Loans are secured by the vehicle being purchased and are typically for a percentage of the loan-to-value (LTV) of the vehicle being purchased, which is essentially the purchase price minus a down payment.

We offer vehicle loans for new and used vehicles of almost any type—cars, trucks, RVs, boats, airplanes, motorcycles and even personal watercraft and ATVs.
We're here to answer any questions you have and can help you make an informed decision on your vehicle loan. (Is a home equity loan a better way to get your vehicle? Call us—we'll help you with that one.)

Personal Reserve Account

It's happened to all of us at one time or another. A check goes through that we forgot about, or an unexpected expense comes up, or we just plain make a mistake. Overdrafts happen.

With a Personal Reserve Account (PRA), you never have to worry about overdrafts again. The PRA is like insurance—it's basically a credit line attached to your checking account and stays inactive until you need it. The PRA is activated in two different ways—by your request, or in the event that you have an overdraft.

 

Here's how it works:

  • PRA credit lines start at $500.
  • Up to $5,000.
  • Attached to your existing Columbia Bank Checking Account.
  • Advances can be made upon request—just call your branch.
  • Advances are made automatically (in $50 increments) in the event that your account is overdrawn.
  • When you receive an advance, the advance shows up on your monthly statement. You will receive a bill for the advance, as well as a notification of transfer. You can pay the whole thing, or the minimum monthly payment (3% of the total, with a $15 minimum).
  • PRA payments must be made on or before the due date and at the address indicated on the billing statement or the payment will be deducted automatically from your checking account on the due date.
  • Annual Percentage Rate is 15.00%.
  • There is a $35 annual fee for the PRA.
  • Subject to credit approval.
