CLC borrowers may access their account anytime through the CLC website. This innovative website eliminates the need for storefronts and high overhead costs resulting in much lower loan costs.  The CLC program provides free, no obligation financial counseling to all CLC borrowers. The CLC financial counselors help borrowers become more financially empowered to manage their personal finances and to use credit responsibly.

How to Access

An eligible employee can apply for a CLC loan online anytime. The CLC loan approval process is quick and easy since the entire loan application process is automated and credit underwriting is not required. After the employer verifies employment of the employee/borrower, the employee signs the CLC loan documents online. CLC loan proceeds (see diagram above) are transferred directly into the borrower’s bank account. CLC loan repayments begin on the employee’s next payday through payroll deduction. The CLC  lender earns the interest from repayment of the CLC loans.
