Our Loan Products

Important Information

Federal student loans permit borrowers in financial trouble to use certain options, such as income-based repayment, which may help some borrowers. Depending on the type of loan that you have, the government may discharge your loan if you die or become permanently disabled. Depending on what type of Federal student loan that you have, you may be eligible for loan forgiveness in exchange for performing certain types of public service. If you are an active duty service member and you obtained your Federal student loan before you were called to active duty, you are entitled to interest rate and repayment benefits for your loan. If you are a borrower with a secure job, emergency savings, strong credit and are unlikely to need any of the options available to distressed borrowers of Federal student loans, a refinance of your Federal student loans into a private student loan may be attractive to you. You should consider the costs and benefits of refinancing carefully before you refinance.

Membership eligibility required. The TFCU Membership or Emergency Share Savings account is a requirement for membership in Thrivent Federal Credit Union. To maintain membership, a par value of one (1) share is $1.00 which must be kept in the account at all times. If you fall below the par value you have six (6) months to increase the balance or your membership may be canceled.

All loans and lines of credit are subject to credit approval and may not be available in certain schools or certain jurisdictions.
