Stock-Secured Loans is rated 4.0 out of 5 by 1.
Rated 4 out of 5 by from Using stock certificates as loan collateral Using stock certificate(s) as loan callateral is not a typical loan request. The DCU was able to do this and it has helped me take out a loan without having to actually sell the stock due to the relatively down market. I'm quite happy with the loan officers who made it possible.

I have approximately $309,000 in 401K accounts. Can I be pre-approved to borrow up to $100,000 using the 401K accounts as security?

Asked by: Jim
If your stocks are part of your 401K retirement plan, you can likely only borrow against these funds through the plan provider. Please contact them directly to learn more. In order to borrow against stocks you own, the stock must be in certificate form. The certificates will be held by DCU during the term of the loan.

The stock must be listed on the New York or American Stock Exchange, or NASDAQ and must be issued in certificate form. Maximum to borrow for this type of product is 70% of the 52 week low value of the stock up to $200,000.
