Make your payments online

When you buy a home, you’re full of anticipation, hope – and questions. Which home is perfect? Can you afford it? And how can you be sure you’re choosing the right home loan? 

At PSECU, we can’t choose the perfect paint color for your new living room, but we can guide you to a worry-free mortgage loan. 

Or maybe you’ve found your home sweet home, but you’re looking to refinance for lower mortgage rates, better terms, or to get cash out. We can help there, too. Our competitive rates and personalized service apply to every home loan we provide.

FAQS:  Mortgage Loan Terms, Conditions, and Eligibility

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.
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 (PDU) that meet certain criteria1
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 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 current rates are listed below.
 
Our Adjustable Rate Mortgage (ARM) products offer a competitive starting rate that’s guaranteed for the first fixed rate period of the loan. This initial rate stays the same for one to seven years, based on the ARM product you select. 

After the fixed rate period has expired on an ARM, the interest rate can change every year for the life of the loan. Annual rate adjustments raise or lower the rate within the periodic rate cap limits. ARMs have a lifetime cap, a rate ceiling that the interest rate can never exceed for the life of the loan. 

Below you can learn more about the terms, adjustments, and lifetime cap. 
Yes! We offer jumbo 1-year Adjustable Rate Mortgages (ARMs) of $453,101 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.
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. Please contact us to discuss your options in detail. 
 
Mortgage refinancing allows you to pay off your existing mortgage(s) to get a different rate, loan term, or payment. You can also opt to refinance your existing loan and get cash back for another purpose. Please contact us to discuss your options in detail.

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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Smooth process!! We loved getting our mortgage through PSECU!! Everything was simple and fast. It was easy to contact my loan officer with the extension number. We got our commitment letter super fast as well. Also not to forget the low interest rates we were able to get. The one thing I don't like is that I can't make payments online for my mortgage. I have to call in every month. Other than that everything else is great!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great rate, wonderful staff Best rate I could find and they were very responsive to any questions. The only complaint I have is the significant lack of e-signing and document upload. It would make the process so much better.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Disappointing service We have been with PSECU for years and always have the best things to say about the people who work there and the service they provide. We just did an arduous mortgage application and the loan officer we were assigned was impossible to get a hold of - even when we called at the stroke of 8 am when the office opened- we always got her voicemail and she repeatedly did not call us back. When we did get to talk to her, she talked down to us like we were of sub-level intelligence and I often felt like I was bothering her. I was not happy with this experience and we asked for a different loan officer, which they would not grant us. I have also found the new phone system to be cumbersome to navigate. It takes so long to get thru to someone now, it never did before. This experience was out of the ordinary for PSECU, but it has shaken my confidence in using them for all of our needs.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Need Better Communication The overall process was very quick and smooth. However, I was the one who had to initiate all contact even after the loan officer promised to be in touch with me but never followed through. I felt like I was calling in there everyday to check and see if they had all they needed to ensure the process was still moving forward. There were a couple times I called and was told that they were waiting on me to provide a document but no one ever reached out to let me know. I was glad it was all over within a month because I was starting to lose my patience and contemplating going elsewhere.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great service The ease of applying, being able to speak to someone anytime i called and had a question and that question was answered immediately. Didn't have to leave my home for any of the process including closing. It was a very cut and dry process that was handled very quickly. Wished I would have used Psecu the first time.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product and Service We refinanced our mortgages, combining two into one, with PSECU. (Our original mortgages were not with PSECU.) Not only did they save us a ton of interest, they cut our loan life in HALF! Great service, too.
