|6 (4 years reduced payment period and 2 years full repayment)||9.07%||48 months of $25|

Borrowers are eligible to make $25 monthly payments during their residency training for a minimum of 48 months up to 60 months ("Residency Period"). These payments may not be enough to cover all of the interest that accrues on the loan. Once the Residency Period ends, any unpaid accrued interest will be added to the loan principal and monthly payments of principal and interest will begin.
All repayment examples assume a loan amount of $10,000 accruing at an annual simple interest rate of 9.99%, which includes a 0.25% AMA Member Discount. The APRs do not include any discount for making automatic payments from a checking or savings account. A borrower's actual rate and payment amount may vary, and is determined by the product, term, loan amount, and your credit qualifications. Example APRs are offered as of May 6, 2019 and subject to change.
Note: The interest rate is higher than the APR because the APR considers the effects of the period of Reduced Payment.
As used throughout this Mortgage Rewards Program, the term “Lender” means KeyBank National Association and its affiliates, agents, guaranty insurers, investors, assigns, and successors in interest.
Lender offers applicants the opportunity to participate in a reward-based program (the “Rewards Program”) throughout the Lender’s mortgage loan application process using the Lender’s online mortgage platform. Through the Rewards Program, applicants may have the opportunity to accrue points that will be redeemable and applied towards costs at closing.
The accrued points are earned by choosing certain specified options to complete the mortgage loan application process. The most cost effective and efficient tasks lead to the greatest amount of points. When you close your mortgage, the total amount of points earned are awarded and then converted into a lender credit. The dollar amount of the lender credit is then applied toward eligible non-recurring closing costs or disclosed fees.
Your participation in the Rewards Program is voluntary, and is expressly conditioned on compliance with the Program Rules and with all present and future Program Rules, terms, regulations, policies, and procedures that Lender may, in its discretion, adopt from time to time.
ACCRUING POINTS AND/OR CHOOSING CERTAIN SPECIFIED OPTIONS TO COMPLETE THE MORTGAGE APPLICATION PROCESS DOES NOT AFFECT THE REVIEW OF THE BORROWER’S MORTGAGE APPLICATION, LENDER’S ULTIMATE DECISION REGARDING THE BORROWER’S MORTGAGE APPLICATION, OR ANY TERM OF A LOAN OFFERED BY LENDER OTHER THAN A REDUCTION OF NON-RECURRING CLOSING COSTS OR DISCLOSED FEES.
Questions or Concerns Regarding Rewards
If you have questions or concerns regarding rewards, please call at 877-801-4686 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
