*Fixed rate home equity line of credit: Loan has a draw period of 10 years, followed by a repayment period. Interest only payments during the 10-year draw period and will be re-amortized at the time the repayment period begins. If interest only payments are made during the draw period, the loan balance will not decrease.

As of July 27, 2023, the index value is 8.50% . The floor APR will be 3.00%. An increase in the Index will result in an increase in the periodic rate which, in turn, will result in higher payments. In no event, will the APR increase by more than 18% or the maximum rate allowed by applicable law.

The minimum advance during the draw period is $4,000. Property insurance is required, including flood insurance where applicable.
