Frequently Asked Questions


  • Am I required to make monthly payments?

    Yes, you are required to make monthly payments to your loan as indicated on your monthly loan statement and Line of Credit Agreement and Disclosure. Your minimum payment will never exceed your outstanding balance. Your monthly loan payment amount will either be $25 or 2% of the outstanding loan balance, whichever is greater, until the loan is paid in full.

  • Are there any fees?

    There are no application or origination fees for the loan.

  • Are there any rate discounts?

    The Tuition Reimbursement Loan qualifies for the Rewards Rate discount of .50%. Rewards Rates let you earn more on your deposits and/or save more on your loans. To qualify for a Rewards Member rate discount on your loan, you must have two of the following relationships:

    1. Direct Deposit of at least $500 per month into a checking account at the Credit Union
    2. At least $25,000 on deposit
    3. A qualifying loan in good standing, including: Mortgage, Home Equity, Auto, or Credit Cards. A qualifying loan must have a current balance and credit cards must have a transaction within the past 30 days. Any Credit Union loan that is not in good standing or is delinquent will disqualify you for Rewards Rates.

    Complete your tuition reimbursement request through Tuition Manager. An award letter will be presented to you upon approval.

  • How do I initiate the loan process after I receive my GEICO HR award letter?

    Apply online by selecting the Personal Loan - Line of Credit product option. Within the application, in the field "What is this for?", select the "Tuition Reimbursement" option. Be sure to have your HR award letter available given you will need to upload it as part of the loan application process.

  • How does the loan work?

    The Tuition Reimbursement Loan is a short-term line of credit that is payable in full at the end of the six-month term. Upon approval from GEICO HR and completion of loan documents, you can advance line of credit funds to pay for qualified school tuition and related expenses. During the term of your loan, minimum monthly payments are required on funds advanced against your credit line.
