Introducing the Savings Amidst Volatile Environment (S.A.V.E.) Advance

  • April 18, 2023

During our 2023 FHLBank Chicago Member Meetings last month, we announced a new advance opportunity to support members as you navigate the rapid rise in interest rates, volatile market, and its impact on your institutions. This one-time opportunity provides members with a discounted advance and flexibility when selecting the interest rate type, advance term, and transaction date to best meet your balance sheet needs.

The S.A.V.E. Advance will be available from May 1, 2023 through October 31, 2023.
