Similar to a credit card, a home equity line of credit (HELOC) gives you the flexibility to borrow what you need, as you need it, until you reach your credit limit. And your interest may be tax deductible if you use the funds to buy, build or substantially improve your home.
The credit line of your HELOC is based on how much equity you’ve built in your home and other factors. If you’re a homeowner who has years of mortgage payments behind you, you’ve likely built up a significant amount of equity. With a HELOC, you can use that equity as collateral to get a line of credit for emergencies, home improvements, debt consolidation, vacations, educational or medical expenses and more.
Draw period. You can spend against your line of credit for the first 10 years, known as the initial draw period. During that time, your payments will be interest-only and are based on only what you’ve borrowed (you don’t pay on your entire credit limit). As you pay down your balance, the amount you’ve paid off become available for use again.
Repayment period. After that 10-year draw period is the repayment period, which is typically 20 years. During the repayment period, you’ll pay both principal and interest, so your payments may be higher than during the draw phase.
Rates. HELOCs are issued at a variable rate of interest, which means that your interest rate can change over the life of your credit line. While your rate can change, there is a rate minimum, or floor, as well as a maximum rate cap over the life of your loan.

You’re set to start using the money from your HELOC any time during your draw period.
Everybody has unexpected expenses or cash shortfalls sometimes. Or maybe you want to consolidate high-interest debts, complete home improvements, or make a large purchase. Instead of emptying your savings accounts or cashing in stocks or other investments, you can use the equity in your home to open an Alliant Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). Alliant HELOCs have low interest rates and the flexibility of low monthly payments, too.
The amount of equity you currently have in your home will determine your Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) limit. You must retain at least 20% of the value of the equity in your home (sometimes referred to as a 80% LTV maximum). You can make a ballpark estimate of your HELOC maximum by calculating what 80% of your home’s value is, then subtracting your existing mortgage balance(s) from that number.
Yes! You can pay more than your minimum monthly payment to pay back your loan faster. In fact, it’s a smart money move to do so, as you’ll save on the interest you pay over the course of your loan! And Alliant won’t penalize you for paying back your loan earlier than scheduled.
You can transfer money from your HELOC in Alliant online banking, our mobile app or by phone.
After logging in to Alliant online banking, click into your HELOC account. Then select the Manage Account tab and click Order Checks. Select your HELOC account from the account dropdown and press the Continue button, then follow the prompts to select your preferred check layout and shipping options.
