Because the payments are electronic, they are deducted from accounts more quickly than when using a paper check. Often, a debit card purchase is posted within 24 hours instead of days, as may be the case with a paper check. That means there would be little time to make a deposit to cover a purchase, if necessary. In addition, even though a transaction was approved, you may overdraw your account because the Credit Union won’t know what other withdrawals you have made that day until it settles all transactions later that day.

Loans & Credit Cards

There is no cost to apply. Credit union membership is required.

Your rate will depend on these variables:

    1. Your credit history (FICO score)
    2. Whether you are buying a new/used vehicle
    3. The term of repayment you choose

HOCU offers fully secured credit cards (please call us at 808-777-5626 for details). This product is a great way to establish credit.

Consider applying with a co-signer. Co-signers agree to be equally responsible for repayment, and their excellent credit history can help you obtain a loan.

Consider applying for a smaller loan to establish a repayment history

For auto financing we will consider other factors: Long term employment, Short repayment term, or large down payment.

There are no pre-payment penalties on any loans we offer.

Yes! We offer Debt Protection – includes life, disability, and unemployment coverage. You may choose one or a combination to protect you from all the what “ifs” in life.

We offer Guaranteed Asset Protection (GAP) Plus.

    1. What is GAP? If you owe more on your vehicle loan than what your vehicle is worth, in the event your vehicle is deemed at a total loss, GAP will cover the amount between what your insurance will pay and the remaining balance you owe
    2. If you finance your next vehicle with HOCU, your GAP Plus insurance will pay $2,500 for your next new replacement vehicle (vehicle must be purchased within 120 days after member’s primary insurance company issues a settlement check).

We offer Mechanical Repair Coverage (MRC)

      1. MRC may help pay for covered repairs on new and eligible used vehicles after your manufacturer’s warranty expires.
