OVERVIEW No required down payment. Member pledges. Blue connects and protects.

Why did Blue create this program?

Blue Federal Credit Union is launching a limited pilot to evaluate the willingness of members to buy share certificates which are pledged as collateral for pooled mortgages requiring no down payment. With a limited number of mortgage candidates in the pilot, we expect to learn about the level of demand both for the mortgage product and for the pledged share certificate. Additionally, we will evaluate the administrative requirements necessary to manage the portfolio.

As a community focused organization, Blue wants to ensure that members of our communities can realize the ultimate American dream of homeownership. With rising home prices, people who otherwise could afford a home (mortgage payments, insurance, and taxes) sometimes have a hard time saving up for a 20% down payment. With this program, the down payment requirement can be waived while also providing pledgers with an incredible interest rate on their pledged funds. It’s a win-win for everyone!

Offer not valid for employees or volunteers of Blue Federal Credit Union. Loan amount may not exceed the conforming loan limit. Insured by NCUA. An equal housing lender.

Rising Home Prices

Rising home prices have negatively impacted the availability of housing for Blue’s members and the communities in which Blue operates.

Saving Isn’t Enough

Salaries and wages often are not sufficient to establish savings toward a 20% down payment that is commensurate with current home prices.

Mortgage Insurance

Typical mortgage insurance premiums increase the monthly obligations of borrowers, reducing their borrowing capacity and further limiting homeownership.


Social Impact

Members and employees want Blue to become a “community connector”. In this respect, we will offer term share certificates that directly address the problem of housing affordability.

Dedicated Support

A dedicated group of Blue employees will be paired with borrowers in the Community Mortgage pilot –monitoring spending trends and helping members make good financial decisions.

Credit & Underwriting

Credit and underwriting standards will remain conservative, except for the allowance of up to 100% LTV, which is necessary to address rising home prices and limited home-ownership.


LET’S BREAK IT DOWN FROM A FINANCIAL PERSPECTIVE For a pledger, this program works like a typical term share (also known as a CD) account. A pledger will deposit their desired funds into a 5-year term share. Those funds will be pooled with other pledgers and used to help secure the mortgages made under this program. Pledgers are rewarded for using their funds for good by being offered a rate that adjusts monthly based on the Prime Rate minus 1.25%. While this program is like a regular term share, there are some very important differences: •

Slightly Increased Risk • While your money will remain federally insured according to NCUA guidelines, pledgers are subject to a slightly increased risk in the unlikely event the mortgage is defaulted on. • To reduce this risk even further, Blue has made the decision to cover 80% of any loss that occurs on the mortgage. The remaining 20% of the loss will be proportionality divided up among the pledgers.

Inability to Remove Funds Early • Because the money that is deposited will be pledged to cover a down payment on a home, there will not be an option to remove the funds before the maturity of the full 5-year term.

If Prime rate increases to 4.00%, your rate will automatically adjust to 2.75% APY* *Annual Percentage Yield

Why should members become a pledger?

At the heart of this program, Blue wants to help people in our communities. Pledgers will be helping fellow members in our communities realize their dream of homeownership.

WHAT DO THE NUMBERS SAY? As an example, if a $400,000 mortgage balance defaults into foreclosure and the home is sold for $380,000 (net of legal fees and other costs of foreclosure), the $20,000 shortfall will be handled as follows: $16,000 (80% x $20,000) will be covered by Blue FCU. $4,000 (20%x $20,000) will be covered by the community of members who have pledged their share certificates.

At a glance, breakdown of the example and pledge share risk. after $20,000 shortfall foreclosure/sale of loss covered by Blue $16,000 80% covered by community pledge shares $4,000 20%

In the above example, $4,000 would be deducted from the community of pledged funds. The deduction would be applied to an individual member directly proportional to the amount of their pledged funds as a percentage of total funds pledged into the program. If there is $800,000 pledged into the program by members of Blue FCU, in aggregate, then if one member pledged a $10,000 share certificate into the program, their pledged funds represent 1.25% of the total pledged funds in the program ($10,000 / $800,000 = 1.25%).

The $4,000 loss from the above default/foreclosure example would translate into a $50.00 loss for a member who pledged their $10,000 share certificate into the program.

Similarly, for a member who pledges a $100,000 share certificate, the $4,000 loss from the above default/foreclosure example would translate into a $500.00 loss because their pledge of $100,000 into the program represents 12.50% of the total $800,000 that was pledged into the program.
