1Mortgage: Rates and terms based on credit criteria; your rate may differ. All loans subject to credit approval. Fixed-Rate Loans: The interest rate charged and the APR are constant for the life of the loan. There are still certain costs such as mortgage points, appraisal, title, and loan processing fees, etc. associated with “no money down”/100% financing mortgage loans. Members should consult a tax adviser for information regarding the deductibility of interest and charges. Minimum/Maximum Refinance Loan Amount: The minimum refinance loan amount is $150,000. Maximum loan amounts are determined by your county’s conforming loan limit. Finance charges begin on the date the loan is made. Interest will continue to accrue until the first payment has been received, which is due within 30 days of settlement but subject to change. Payment Example: Assuming a $250,000 loan amount, a 30-year term, and a  mortgage rate of 6.250% (6.508% APR), you would make 360 monthly payments of $1,539.29.00. Mortgage examples do not include amounts for taxes, insurance premiums, etc. Therefore, the actual payment obligation will be greater. Offer subject to change without notice. Consumer mortgage loans only. FedChoice NMLS # 399841 provides mortgage loans by partnership with myCUmortgage, LLC. NMLS # 565434.
