  • When the bond reaches maturity, the proceeds are paid to the bank and your payment obligations are complete
TERMS & CONDITIONS:
  • Each participating bank sets the specific terms for the loan. You will be asked to submit a current personal financial statement, tax returns for the last two years and additional information as requested. The bank may ask you to deposit and maintain, in an interest-bearing account, an amount equal to the sum to be paid over the course of the loan. Other conditions, such as an additional fixed amount, may also apply. Loan approval is at the sole discretion of the bank.
  • Interest paid on the loan may be tax deductible, subject to specific limits provided by law. Consult your tax advisor to determine applicable regulations.
