Home Equity Loan Checklist

In order to process your Home Equity Loan application we need the following documents to complete our files:
  • A copy of your most recent W-2 form(s) and most recent paycheck stub(s) or bank statements to verify income for retirement or Social Security. If self employed, we need your last 2 years of income tax returns.
  • A copy of your most recent property tax assessment.
  • A copy of the declarations page of your homeowner’s insurance policy showing your coverage and premium.
  • The property you offer as security on a home equity loan must be your principal residence, with the title held in your name- not a second home, rental property, or home being purchased on contract. If you have any questions contact us at 217-278-7700 or email us at mortgage@uiecu.org.

  • If divorced, please provide copies of recorded divorce decree.
  • If funds for your down payment or closing costs will be a gift from a family member, please be aware that we will have to document that the funds were available in the donor’s account prior to the gift being transferred, and that the funds have subsequently been transferred.
  • If self-employed, borrowers must provide complete tax returns with all appropriate schedules for the previous two years.
  • If renting, the name and address of your current landlord.
