Risk Based: The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) you receive for each type of subaccount will be within the range disclosed above and based on your credit worthiness. Please ask for the rate you qualify for.

*Loans are eligible for a 0.25% discount with payroll payment or automatic payment from an Arkansas Best Federal Credit Union account excluding Share Secured, Certificate Secured, and Lines of Credit.

Rates on collateralized loans can be reduced by 0.25% for every 10% of equity in collateral at the time the loan is made up to a maximum 0.50% reduction.

Share/Certificate Advances: The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) for Share Secured/Certificate Advances will be the dividend rate being paid on your Shares/Certificate on the date of the advance plus 2%. The advance will be reviewed every 12 months and rate adjusted.

LINES OF CREDIT: The Annual Percentage Rate (APR) will be based on an Index and Margin. The Index is the Prime Rate as published in the “Money Rates” section of the Wall Street Journal on the 15th day of the month preceding the rate change. The Annual Percentage Rate is subject to change the first day of the month following the published rate in the Wall Street Journal. Your Margin is based on your creditworthiness.

* The ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE is subject to change the day after next month’s statement date to reflect any changes in the Index and will be determined by the Prime Rate on the 15th of each month of each year as published in The Wall Street Journal “Money Rates” table to which we add a margin.  The ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE will never be greater than 18.00%.  Any increase in the ANNUAL PERCENTAGE RATE will take the form of additional payments shown as Total Minimum Payments on the statement.  If the index is no longer available, the Credit Union will choose a new index which is based upon comparable information.

Each Credit Card account is reviewed semi-annually and rate adjusted according to credit risk score.
