About My Credit Union
This credit union devotes the majority of its profits to providing its members with the best possible service, as well as competitively priced home loans and other savings and lending products. Like all mutual building societies and credit unions, My Credit Union members are equal shareholders in the company, which means that they have a say in how the company is run.
My Credit Union’s home loans
Fixed rate home loans
These home loans are ideal for everyone who enjoys the security of an unchanged interest rate for up to the three years at the beginning of the loan period. Instead of leaving things to market fluctuations, My Credit Union’s fixed-rate product offers members both peace of mind and a competitive fixed rate (differing depending on the loan period selected) before reverting to the prevailing standard variable rate.
Whether buying a first home or refinancing an existing home loan from another institution, borrowers are exempt from paying monthly account-keeping fees and have access to a redraw facility.
My Ideal Home Loan
As long as you’re borrowing at least $250,000 and an LVR maximum of 80%, you’re eligible for the My Ideal Home Loan. Borrowers can use the online home loan fact sheet to get an idea of the repayments they can expect depending on the interest rate and the loan period. The My Ideal Home Loan allows for additional repayments to pay their home loan off quicker. Borrowers also have access to a redraw facility to make withdrawals on those extra repayments.
My Home Loan
The My Home Loan is well-suited to investors. Whether you’re applying to secure an owner-occupied or rental property, this basic home loan has just enough features to make it beneficial to potential investors. Borrowers benefit from the most competitive rate in the My Credit Union’s stable along with the option to repay the loan early without the risk of penalty. Borrowers can also accelerate the frequency of repayments and then access those additional funds via a redraw facility.
My Advantage Home Loan
This is My Credit Union’s most feature-packed loan, complete with competitive rates and the option to repay the whole loan without penalty. Borrowers can also make extra repayments to reduce the loan period. These extra repayments can then be accessed via a redraw facility. The loan also offers a 100% offset facility. This means that you can have an account linked to your home loan, and you only pay interest on the loan balance minus the amount in that account.
My Equity Home Loan
The My Equity Home Loan is available for a minimum of $25,000 and a maximum loan period of 10 years. This is a variable rate, interest-only home loan, and repayments are made monthly and can vary depending on market fluctuations.
How to apply for a My Credit Home Loan
Become a member. While anyone can apply for a loan, accessing the loan funds requires the borrower to become a My Credit Union member.
Apply online. The application process is as simple as filling in an online form and getting conditional approval in just 24 hours.
While borrowing with a credit union means more focused attention and personal advice, the onus is still on you to decide on the right product for your needs. Features like top-up and overdraft facilities are certainly convenient, but they can also be pitfalls if you can’t manage your spending.
Applicants have to be Australian residents and over the age of 18, and they have to submit proof of identification.
Identification. Borrowers have to present documents compliant with the 100 point check. A valid passport and birth certificate should suffice.
Income. Include at least six months’ proof of income as well as additional assets that contribute towards your monthly and annual income. This include all the properties, vehicles, valuable antiques etc. that you might own. If you own shares or securities in a listed company, you should include the relevant documentation.
Liabilities. This includes other loans, credit cards and housing expenses for which you are liable.
Pay no application or ongoing fees and get access to a redraw facility and flexible repayment schedule. Get $1,000 cash into a USaver account when you take out a loan of $200,000 or more (new or refinance). Terms and conditions apply.

Important information about this website
finder.com.au is one of Australia's leading comparison websites. We compare from a wide set of major banks, insurers and product issuers.
finder.com.au has access to track details from the product issuers listed on our sites. Although we provide information on the products offered by a wide range of issuers, we don't cover every available product. You should consider whether the products featured on our site are appropriate for your needs and seek independent advice if you have any questions.
Products marked as 'Promoted' or "Advertisement" are prominently displayed either as a result of a commercial advertising arrangement or to highlight a particular product, provider or feature. Finder may receive remuneration from the Provider if you click on the related link, purchase or enquire about the product. Finder's decision to show a 'promoted' product is neither a recommendation that the product is appropriate for you nor an indication that the product is the best in its category. We encourage you to use the tools and information we provide to compare your options and find the best option for you.
The identification of a group of products, as 'Top' or 'Best' is a reflection of user preferences based on current website data. On a regular basis, analytics drive the creation of a list of popular products. Where these products are grouped, they appear in no particular order.
Where our site links to particular products or displays 'Go to site' buttons, we may receive a commission, referral fee or payment.
We try to take an open and transparent approach and provide a broad based comparison service. However, you should be aware that while we are an independently owned service, our comparison service does not include all providers or all products available in the market.
Some product issuers may provide products or offer services through multiple brands, associated companies or different labelling arrangements. This can make it difficult for consumers to compare alternatives or identify the companies behind the products. However, we aim to provide information to enable consumers to understand these issues.
Providing or obtaining an estimated insurance quote through us does not guarantee you can get the insurance. Acceptance by insurance companies is based on things like occupation, health and lifestyle. By providing you with the ability to apply for a credit card or loan we are not guaranteeing that your application will be approved. Your application for credit products is subject to the Provider's terms and conditions as well as their application and lending criteria.
