FAQs

Our mortgage Process

After you submit your mortgage application, a PSECU mortgage specialist will review your application. We’ll answer any questions you may have and, if qualified, provide you with a preapproval letter if you’re purchasing a home. The preapproval letter lets you know exactly how much house you can afford and helps you make a strong bid to the seller.

Once you find the right house and go under contract, we can move forward in the loan process. At this time, you provide more detailed financial information. Through the process, our underwriters will carefully review your loan. After closing, we’ll service your loan through the life of your mortgage.

If you are choosing to refinance your mortgage with PSECU, the process is very similar, except you won’t receive a preapproval letter.
On average, it takes 45 - 60 days from application date to closing date.
We offer jumbo 1-year Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) of $484,351 to $1 million at a low start rate. 

Caps are 1/5, which means your interest rate will not adjust more than 1% up or down per year. The rate will adjust no more than 5% up or down over the life of the loan. Contact us to discuss your specific situation.

Our jumbo loans have a few qualifications. The property must be:
  • Located in Pennsylvania
  • 1- to 4-unit dwelling
  • Primarily used by the borrower (not an investment property)
  • Titled in the name(s) of individual(s). Living trusts are not acceptable.
We lend to properties that are: 
  • Located in the state of Pennsylvania
  • Recorded with PSECU listed as first lien holder. The property secures your mortgage loan.
  • Titled after purchase in the name(s) of individual(s), not a trust
  • Owner-occupied homes, vacation homes, or residential investment properties with one, two, three, or four units
  • Condominiums or residences within a Planned Unit Development (PUD) that meet certain criteria. Please contact our Mortgage Consultants for more information.

We do not lend to properties that are:

  • Single-wide manufactured homes
  • Timeshares
  • Not in acceptable marketable condition
  • Residential investment condo or manufactured homes
  • Located outside Pennsylvania
Fixed Rate:
When applying online, you will have an opportunity to lock your interest rate. If you choose to let the rate float, the interest rate will not be locked until you notify us that you want to lock it. Some mortgage products require the assistance of PSECU staff. If that's the case with your mortgage application, you'll have the opportunity to lock your rate when you speak with us. We do not offer rate locks on Pre-Approval applications.

Adjustable Rate:
You will receive the lowest rate in effect from the time of application up to the time of approval.

 


You may request to waive an escrow account if the loan-to-value (LTV) is 80% or lower, taxes and insurance have been paid timely in the past, and you have the ability to pay them on your own.

Mortgage Definitions

The loan-to-value (LTV) ratio is the loan amount displayed as a percentage of a property’s market value. Maximums vary by property type. You don’t have to borrow the maximum LTV, but the guidelines tell you your borrowing limit.
Fixed-rate mortgages have a fixed interest rate for the life of the loan. The monthly payment for principal and interest on a fixed-rate loan stays the same every month for the term of the loan. 

You have the option to buy down the interest rate by paying discount points upfront. You can choose to lock in your interest rate once you’ve signed a sales agreement, or wait until closer to closing.
Our Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) products offer a competitive starting rate that's fixed for the first year of the loan.
Each point is equal to one percent of the loan amount. Please check out the rate tables for interest rates and points available for our mortgage products.
Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) is generally required for loans with a loan to value (LTV) greater than 80%. This coverage helps protect the lender in case you can't make your payments and default on the loan. PMI makes it possible for borrowers with small down payments to buy a home.
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Refinance Loan I sat on hold for more than 35 minutes. Both Jennifer and Frank answered the phone but could not help me since they did not work in the loan department. Even though I called 800.562.6555 which I thought was the loan department. I tried to use online banking to apply for a loan but the system was not working and waiting on hold for almost an hour didn't work either.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad Customer Service and Unnecessary Terms If you're not already a member of PSECU, you'll have hard time calling in for support. They're automated system repeatedly asks for a member number so if you haven't become a member yet it takes a lot of effort to get through to someone. If you call during non-business hours you can't leave a voicemail for someone to call you back. They must be short on support representatives as well because I sat on hold for 35 minutes waiting to talk to someone. Be aware, PSECU is not a risk-based institution so you get the same interest rate regardless of your credit score, it's a system that punishes those with good credit and rewards those with bad. Before you can become a member, the bank will do a credit report (for some reason) and the new member approval process takes way too long. In 2020 it should be an instantaneous, automated process. Overall, I had a bad experience get trying to get pre-approved. I disliked their support so much that I withdrew my application and will be taking my business to another financial institution that provides better support and modern services.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Small Business Owner I am a small business owner and I called to request a delay of payments until Gov. Wolf will allow businesses to open again. The customer service representative informed me that it would be $25.00 per account per month and I would have to produce pay stubs and tax returns to prove my income. All of the other major banks like Chase, Barclays and local banks easily made the 30 day payment delay without any questions asked and said if I call back in 30 days and my businesses are still not open, then they would delay another 30 days without interest or penalty. My customer service agent said I would have to call back on Monday because she would not be able to help by situation until she talks to her manager. I have been a PSECU customer for over 30 years without a single late payment and this is how they treat customers in a time on need!!! I will be paying off my accounts as soon as possible and move all of my accounts to a local bank that was more than willing to help without any delay or fees.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great rates, great people, no hidden fees but.. Went through the whole on-line application process which was lengthy but normal time amount considering all the required information needed, only to get to the VERY END of the application, to learn 'PSECU does not lend mortgages to persons/homes with gas wells on the property'. Was very surprised to read this given the gas industry in PA. and all the homes missing out on the great rates and the money the credit union is missing out on. Seriously home owners is required and covers the home. Was extremely disappointed that this type of limitation was not included in the mortgage info along with the rates or even a front page prior to application process, listing property requirements. What a waste of precious time. So heads up, call them before completing application to see what other limitations that have before wasting your time.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Great Rate, ends there The rate offered was great. I am assuming the quantity of loan applications has much to do with the issues I had. The process was very unprofessional and unorganized. The process in place to ensure the customer is receiving accurate and current information across the board is non existent thru the loan process. Closing was done in my home which was very convienent however the lack of representation from PSECU or the Title Company made for a painful experience and many phone calls just to get the INACCURATE closing documents signed. I paid the same fees as the person before and after me so I am not sure why I should accept a sub par product and experience.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from PSECU - My one and only bank At 39 years old, I am proud to say that PSECU has been my one and only bank. I've been with PSECU for the long-term and have only had positive interactions. They are proactive, professional, kind, and competitive. I highly recommend this credit union to anyone looking for a trusted long-term financial partner. Great job, PSECU!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from banking, vehicle and mortgage and equity loans Love PSECU, we have had many loans through them over the years, and it has always gone well. They are very helpful and accommodating.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Terrible Customer Service We have a mortgage with PSECU and are in the process of selling the property. Buyer needs a certified payoff amount for settlement. PSECU needs our authorization to release. Real Estate division is on Elmerton Avenue, but we were told no visitors are allowed on premise, so we could not deliver the authorizing document directly. Delivered document to Cameron Street office and requested it be forwarded. Never happened! Emailed document to the Real Estate division and our Settlement office. Settlement office receive, but for some reason PSECU did not. Settlement office sent a copy to PSECU, who would not accept saying it was illegible. So, today is settlement, we told have a certified payoff amount and will have to delay 3 weeks until all parties can again convene.
