How Do Personal Lines of Credit Work

A personal line of credit can be a big help when you need cash immediately. Think of it as a bridge to accomplishing certain goals, paying unexpected expenses, or keeping personal finances in balance.
 
By definition, a personal line of credit (POC) is an unsecured revolving account with a spending limit that you can borrow money from as you need it. A POC comes with a variable (rather than fixed) interest rate and is designed to be available for a set period. When you choose the amount of your POC, the lender won’t give you a check for the full value. Instead, you can withdraw smaller amounts as needed.
