Fully Indexed Rate: The index rate plus margin that results in the APR.

Annual Fee for HELOCs: $50. Fee will be waived if payments are automatically transferred from a SchoolsFirst FCU Share Savings or Checking account.

Home Equity Loan and HELOC Origination Fees: No lender origination fees are required unless accommodation recording fees, title charges to clear or transfer liens, or indemnification due to construction on the subject property are required. The borrower is responsible for these costs.
