EasyPath Banking

At CIBC, we know that there’s a need for access to affordable financing options. That’s why CIBC Bank USA offers EasyPath Banking. Certain products have qualifications. To find out if EasyPath Banking is right for you, review the product qualification grid.

EasyPath Access Account

Take the guess work out of managing your account. We know that life can get hectic and keeping tabs on your account balance can be challenging. Simple oversights like forgetting to record an ATM withdrawal or debit card purchase can lead to spending more money than you have in your account, resulting in frustration and overdraft fees.

The EasyPath Access Account is specifically designed to help you avoid overdrafts and overdraft fees. CIBC Bank USA will stop transactions1 that would cause the account to become overdrawn.2

Key features include:

  • No overdrafts or overdraft fees
  • If you don’t have sufficient funds in your account to complete a transaction, the transaction won’t be paid
  • No minimum balance requirement
  • Non-interest bearing
  • Check-free account – avoid bounced check fees
  • Access your money by using your debit/ATM card, online or mobile banking or by visiting a branch location

EasyPath Mortgage Loan

Buying a new home is one of the biggest decisions you’ll make and there are countless questions along the way. How much space do we need? How about the roof? Of all things to wonder about, your mortgage provider shouldn’t be one of them.

Low down payment options are available on long-term, fixed-rate mortgages for the purchase or refinance of owner-occupied single-family homes or condominiums.

  • Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI) not required
  • Flexible underwriting available
  • Access to special Homeowner Education Programs to help you make sure homeownership is right for you

The EasyPath Mortgage Loan may be right for you if:

  • You’re purchasing a new home or refinancing your mortgage on your existing owner-occupied home
  • You have at least 3% to apply to the down payment on a new home5

EasyPath Step Loan

If you have less than perfect credit or no established credit history, an EasyPath Step Loan may help build your savings while establishing a good credit relationship by making regularly scheduled and timely payments.6

EasyPath Step Loans are available to qualified applications for any amount between $500 and $10,000.

  • Easy to apply
  • Loan terms from 12 to 60 months at a fixed-rate of 8.00% APR7
  • Payment example: As of December 11, 2019, a $2,500 loan at 8.00% APR for 24 months will have a monthly payment of $113.07

EasyPath Step Loan guidelines will be used to review your application. Among factors we consider are:

  • Have you been employed or had continuous income for at least six months?
  • Can you show your most recent paystubs for the last 30-day period? Or if self-employed, personal and business tax returns for the last year?
  • Do you have sufficient income to make your EasyPath Step Loan payments without a co-signer?

Don’t meet all of the requirements? If you’ve been employed or had continuous income less than six months, a EasyPath Step Loan may still be available to you at loan amounts up to $1,000. Talk to a relationship banker for complete details.

Once you’re approved for a EasyPath Step Loan, it’s as simple as 1-2-3:

  1. Your EasyPath Step Loan proceeds will be placed in a certificate of deposit (CD) that matches the loan term and amount you borrow. The CD will earn interest at the current rate we offer for new CDs for the same term. Funds from the CD can’t be withdrawn until the loan is paid in full.
  2. You make regular monthly payments, on time, until the loan is paid off.
  3. When the loan is paid in full, the CD, plus the interest earned on the CD, becomes yours.
