Access NOW™

When you need your money quickly.

Sometimes life comes at you fast. Now your funds can too.

Your Home Equity Line of Credit is approved, but you can’t wait weeks to get the funds. You need money sooner rather than later – we can help with that.

Your HVAC needs to be replaced…right away. Your children’s tuition is due sooner than you had planned for. We get it – life is unpredictable. Sometimes you need a little financial flexibility when an immediate need comes up for funds.

A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a great solution for these kinds of expenses. But after your application is approved, it might take a while before you actually see any cash. What if you need your money right now? Atlantic Union Bank has a solution: The Access NOW loan.

Access NOW is a way to put some money in your pocket while you wait for your Home Equity Line of Credit to close.

The Access NOW loan allows you to borrow a portion of your approved credit limit right away and is paid off when you get your HELOC funds. It’s that simple.

  • Borrow up to 50% of your approved HELOC credit limit or $50,000, whichever is less
  • 90-day term with interest-only monthly payments
  • Balance paid off when HELOC closes
  • Low rate with no processing fees or prepayment penalty

Prime For Life, currently 4.75% APR*

For applications received through June 30, 2020, your new HELOC rate is as low as Prime + 0% APR for the life of the line when you take an advance of at least $15,000 at closing. No matter how many variable-rate draws you take, your rate matches the current prime rate.

**Bank will pay closing costs for non-purchase money credit lines up to $249,999; credit lines of $250,000 or more and purchase-money credit lines will receive a $600 credit toward closing costs, or the full amount of closing costs, whichever is less. Closing costs include the first property valuation obtained by Atlantic Union Bank, but exclude any subsequent valuations not required by us. However, if your account is closed within three (3) years of the opening date, we will add any closing costs we advanced on your behalf to your outstanding balance for our reimbursement.
