A line of credit is similar to a credit card in that it is a flexible borrowing solution. You can draw on this revolving loan simply by writing a check, request a withdrawal in person, or use FHB online for payments or transfers to existing FHB accounts. You are also able to borrow any part of your credit line again once you have repaid it. Except for the annual fee, no payments are due until you advance your line of credit.

With a personal loan, you receive the whole loan when you're approved and you start paying interest immediately on the full amount. You have a fixed schedule of payments that you make until the loan is paid off. For more information, browse our options on loans and lines of credit.
Use it for home improvements, tuition payments, bill consolidation, buy a new car, or go on vacation. It's easy and convenient to pay for almost anything.
Consumer Home Equity Loans cannot be used to purchase the subject property.
While the Consumer Home Equity Loan and Home Equity Line of Credit are both secured on your property, they have some differences. The Consumer Home Equity Loan is a loan with a fixed amount, rate, term, and payments. A Home Equity Line of Credit is a line of credit that can be drawn on at any time during the Draw Period, up to your credit limit. In contrast to the Consumer Home Equity Loan, a Home Equity Line of Credit has a variable rate, meaning that your monthly payments may vary. Under a HELOC you have the option to convert variable-rate balances to fixed-rate balances.
