Advance Renewal Discount

To better support your funding strategy and help you save on interest expense, FHLBank Boston is pleased to provide discounted rates for advances that are rolled into a new Classic Bullet Advance at maturity.

Eligibility

In order for the advance to qualify, the following conditions must be met on the new advance:

  • Minimum of $1,000,000
  • Minimum term of one year or greater
  • Must be at least 50% of the maturing advance 
  • Must be a Classic Bullet Advance (Note: The maturing advance does not need to be a Classic Bullet.)

Discount

The discount amount below will be subtracted from the applicable posted rate. 

Example:

  • 50% to 124% of maturing advance
    • Term of new advance 1 to 2 years: 2 basis points
    • Term of new advance >2 years: 6 basis points
  • 125% of maturing advance
    • Term of new advance 1 to 2 years: 4 basis points
    • Term of new advance >2 years: 8 basis points

For example, a member who is rolling a $10,000,000 maturity into a three-year, $13,000,000 advance will have 8 basis points subtracted from the three-year posted advance rate.
