Consolidation Loans

Having one loan at Leaders is good. Having them all here is much better.

We exist to serve your needs. Part of that service is making sure that when you repay your debts, you spend the least amount possible in interest. When you have loans or credit cards with other providers, and you have repaid those loans on-time, we can help you consolidate or refinance them into Leaders loans. Here are some ways we can help:

  • Consolidation Loans: refinance your home or auto and include debts from other providers, reducing your rate or shortening your term to repayment. We also offer signature loans to consolidate other debts.
  • Rapid Refi: if you have at least 12 on-time auto repayments, Leaders will refinance your loan and either reduce your monthly payment or shorten the length of your loan.
  • Balance Transfers: transfer your existing balance on a competing credit card to a Leaders Platinum VISA® at 0% for 15 months.

Debt Protection

Help play it safe.

Whether you're taking out a loan to make home improvements or buying a vehicle, it can be a financial gamble because things happen…life happens. Help play it safe with Debt Protection, a voluntary loan-payment protection product. Debt Protection helps you get relief from the financial burden of delinquency, default, or foreclosure if a protected life event unexpectedly happens to you. Simple eligibility requirements help ease the enrollment process.

Over 60% of members ages 25-40 are concerned with how they will support themselves if they become disabled.

If a protected life event happens to you (and you're a protected borrower or co-borrower on the loan), Debt Protection will cancel or waive your loan payment(s), up to the contract maximums. Help lessen your worries, and your family's worries, about paying loans during a time when your income may be reduced or lost and paying other household bills becomes challenging. Protected events include:

  • Loss of life, including those caused by acts of war
  • Disability, including those caused by acts of war

Email or call the Leaders Loyalty team at 800.227.1893 ext. 1253 and ask about protecting your loans, today.

Your purchase of Debt Protection is optional and will not affect your application for credit or the terms of any credit agreement required to obtain a loan. Certain eligibility requirements, conditions, and exclusions may apply. Please contact your loan representative, or refer to the Member Agreement for a full explanation of the terms of Debt Protection. You may cancel the protection at any time. If you cancel protection within 30 days you will receive a full refund of any fee paid.
