†Fixed Rate Resident Interview Loan Repayment Examples:
Term (years) Interest Rate APR Monthly Payment
6 (4 years reduced payment period and 2 years full repayment) 10.000% 9.079% 48 months of $25
24 months of $590.66
7 (4 years reduced payment period and 3 years full repayment) 10.500% 9.557% 48 months of $25
36 months of $422.53
7 (5 years reduced payment period and 2 years full repayment) 10.000% 8.843% 60 months of $25
24 months of $622.96
All repayment examples assume a loan amount of $10,000 and that Borrowers make $25 monthly payments from disbursement for 48 months or 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.

The APRs and interest rates do not include any discounts. A borrower's actual rate and payment amount may vary, and is determined by the product, term, loan amount, and your credit qualifications.

Annual Percentage Rate (“APR”): This term represents the actual cost of financing to the borrower over the life of the loan expressed as a yearly rate.

Interest Rate: A simple annual rate that is applied to an unpaid balance.

Note: The interest rate is higher than the APR because the APR considers the effects of the period of Reduced Payment.

Rewards Program Disclosure

As used throughout this Rewards Program Disclosure (“Disclosure”), the terms “Lender”, “we”, “us”, and “our” mean KeyBank National Association. By using the Site, you are accepting the terms of the Rewards Program and this Disclosure as described herein, and as amended from time to time.


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 or Site. 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 Rewards 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.



  • Only available to individuals legally eligible to obtain a mortgage loan. Proof of age is required at closing.

  • Points are accrued based on tasks performed within a given application for a loan transaction. Earnings are accrued per task. Points are earned once per task.

  • Borrowers can accrue up to 650 points per loan transaction. Total points accrued and/or available are located in the “My Rewards” widget.

  • Points are converted on a one-to-one basis to lender credits that will be reflected on the Closing Disclosure and applied to eligible non-recurring closing costs at Lender’s discretion. The maximum available lender credit that may be obtained for the Reward Program is $650. To learn more about availability see contact information below.

  • Points accrued during the process may be converted into lender credits at the closing of an approved Lender loan, provided the application remains active until the time of closing.

  • Points are non-assignable and non-transferable.

  • Accrued points have no cash value, are non-negotiable, and are not redeemable either in whole or in part for cash. Applicants cannot receive cash back from accrued points applied at closing. Accrued points have no value in the event that the applicant withdrawals the loan application, the application is withdrawn by Lender as incomplete, or the application is denied.

  • Applied lender credits may not exceed limits that may be imposed on lender credits by investor or program guidelines. Applied lender credits may be modified if the total amount of credit exceeds the maximum allowed under the applicable guidelines.


  • Lender has the right, in its sole discretion and without notice, to change, update, revise, limit, supplement and otherwise modify the rule or terms of the Reward Program and impose new or additional rules, terms and conditions on the applicant’s use of the Rewards Program, at any time, at its discretion, with or without notice, even though such changes may affect the accumulation of points or the ability to obtain the reward.

  • Lender reserves the right to change the Rewards Program Rules or terms at any time in its sole discretion without prior notice to borrower, including but not limited to: (i) the qualifications for eligibility; (ii) the value of points earned by the applicant; (iii) the number of points needed to earn a reward; and (iv) the rewards available to be earned. Each such modification will be effective upon posting on the Site.

  • Lender reserves the right, in its sole discretion and without notice, to terminate or cancel the Rewards Program, in whole or in part, or an individual applicant’s participation in the Program for any reason and at its sole discretion, with or without cause. “Termination” means ending the Rewards Program, with no further ability to earn points and/or convert points at closing by any applicant; “Cancellation” means the expiration or revocation of an individual applicant’s eligibility, for any reason, with or without cause. Neither Termination nor Cancellation of the Rewards Program affects the applicant’s pending loan application(s).
