Let’s dispel these common fears about mortgages.
The good news is that you don’t have to. Our team of professional Real Estate Loan Officers are ready to help you simplify the mortgage process, from choosing the right mortgage type for you to understanding the application and approval process.Get Help With Mortgages
We’ll help you find the right mortgage type that fits both your budget and lifestyle. Grow offers a variety of options, including fixed-rate and adjustable-rate options, jumbo loans, professional loans and mortgages with down payment assistance.See Mortgage Options
Not always. While 20% is the most common down payment percentage, Grow can help you choose the right home loan and payment plan for your budget. For example, an FHA loan would require as little as a 3.5% down payment.View Loan Options
Let’s dispel these common fears about credit cards.
Opening a credit card triggers a hard inquiry, which can lower your score a few points. But when used responsibly, your credit card can help you quickly earn points and boost your score. We even designed the Grow Visa® Preferred Secured Credit Card for our members who want to improve their credit.View Credit Card Options
We know the options can seem overwhelming, but Grow helps you choose the right card for your lifestyle. If you want to earn cash back, then our Grow Visa® Cash Rewards Credit Card might be the one for you. If rewards like gift cards or travel perks are more your style, then you might want to consider our Grow Visa Rewards Credit Card.See Credit Card Options

How to Find Your Routing & Account Numbers
When you make a payment online, by phone or on a mobile device, you may be asked for our routing number and your checking account number. Credit unions and banks use these numbers to identify accounts and make sure money gets where it’s supposed to be. You’ll also need to provide your routing and checking account numbers for:
- Direct deposits
- Electronic checks
- Military allotments
- Wire transfers
Where to Find Your Routing & Checking Account Numbers
Your personal checks include both our routing number and your account number, as shown on the Grow check example below.
Don’t have a Grow check? No worries.
Visit any Grow store and ask for a Direct Deposit Form. It lists both your routing number and checking account number.
Making a Loan Payment
When it comes to making payments, we try to make it as painless as possible to pay your loan every month. We have several different ways to pay, including convenient online options.
You have two ways to pay online by transferring funds from another bank or credit union.
- Grow Online Banking (Preferred payment method for any loan)
This is the simplest way to pay your loan. You can make one-time payments or set up automatic recurring payments in Grow Online Banking. Once you log in, select “Transfer/Payments” from the menu. If you’re not enrolled in Grow Online Banking yet, you can set up your account in just a few minutes.
- Debit Card or ACH (Available for auto, personal loans and HELOCs)
Note: ACH and debit card payments are not available for credit cards or most mortgages, except HELOCs.
We accept ACH payments with no additional fees or Mastercard® and Visa® debit cards with a convenience fee of $4.95. To get started with an online ACH or debit card payment, select Pay Now below.
Pay by Mail
You can also pay any Grow loan by check through the mail. Please remember to include your account number and Grow loan number on the check. (For credit card payments, please do not write your 16-digit credit card number on the check, which can cause a delay in processing the payment.)
