The Federal Home Loan Bank of Chicago is a member-owned cooperative, which means financial institutions must purchase capital stock in order to join and maintain membership in the Bank. Purchasing capital stock funds the Bank’s cooperative business model. Applicants have 60 days from the date of their approval to meet their membership stock requirement through the purchase of capital stock. This purchase completes the application process and begins their membership in FHLBank Chicago.
