Applicants can borrow up to 97%* of the purchase price of a home and all but $1,000 of the down payment may come from a family gift or down payment assistance program. In addition, seller paid closing cost is allowed.

Borrowers who qualify for this program receive a discounted interest rate based on current market rates. In addition, qualifying borrowers also receive a reduced loan origination fee, from the typical 1% to a flat fee of $800.00.

All of these special incentives and discounts combine to help reduce the out-of-pocket expenses for the borrower, while also lowering their overall monthly payment.

What is the difference between fixed and adjustable rate mortgages?

A fixed rate mortgage has an interest rate that will remain the same throughout the life of the loan.

An adjustable rate mortgage loan has an interest rate that can change throughout the life of the loan. Sometimes the adjustment will occur one time and other times it could occur multiple occasions throughout the life of the loan. Often times, adjustments will be dependent on market conditions at the time that the adjustment is made.

What does it mean when people pay for points to decrease their interest rate?

Mortgage points, also known as discount points, are fees paid directly to the lender at closing in exchange for a reduced interest rate. Olyfed does not have a program in place to allow borrowers to purchase points.

ClickSWITCH

What is ClickSWITCH?

ClickSWITCH makes it easy for you to quickly and securely switch your current online bill payments, automated payments and direct deposits from your existing financial institution accounts to your OlyFed account. ClickSWITCH removes the hassles of contacting all your billers to make changes.

How does ClickSWITCH work?

ClickSWITCH takes the hassle out of moving your automated payments and direct deposits to your OlyFed account. You input your payment and direct deposit information into our secure ClickSWITCH system and we’ll get to work contacting all the billers to switch your payments over to your new account. You can monitor progress and track status in the “Status” column.

What do I need to start the ClickSWITCH process?

Getting started is easy! You’ll need the SwitchTRACK code provided to you by your bank representative, or you may activate your switch through the welcome email you received if opening an account online. You’ll need to gather your automated payments and direct deposit information to begin. A previous statement is a great source for information on the automated payments and direct deposits tied to an account.

Where do I get a SwitchTRACK code?

Call 360-754-3400 or come by a branch during operating hours to receive your SwitchTRACK code. If you opened your account online, please reference the ClickSWITCH documents for details and instructions, including your SwitchTRACK code.

How long will it take for me to switch my payments?

Timing for each payment switch can vary depending on the type of payment, biller, and the method needed to switch the payment. Online banking bill payments are switched instantly. Automated payments and direct deposits typically take between 7-10 days to switch but can be faster with certain billers. It’s always a good idea to review your switch status page for the most current information regarding each switch.

Do I need to call my billers to confirm the switch?

We display the status for each automated payment or direct deposit in the Status column. If a switch shows as “Completed” there’s no need to contact the biller. For switches that are marked as “Mailed” for more than 10 days, you may want to contact the biller to confirm the status.

Does ClickSWITCH work with direct deposit?

Yes. Indicate the type of direct deposit you want to switch and complete the required information.

Please note: some employers and government agencies require direct deposit switches to be completed directly with them. In these cases, you may need to reach out to them directly.

What should I do if a switch still shows as mailed?

Automated ACH payments may take up to 10 days to switch. If your switch has a “Mailed” status for more than 10 days, it’s a good idea to contact the biller to confirm the switch or to see if the biller needs additional information.

One of my switches has an “Action Needed” status. What does this mean?

Occasionally, after you have submitted a switch for processing, our research team determines that a particular biller requires you to update your banking information with them online. When this happens, your switch will show an “Action Needed” status. To see the details of the action you need to take, you can click on the Edit icon in the Actions column.

Why do I need to enter my billing account number?

Your billing account number is required by the biller to ensure your identity and to update the account information in their system.

Which address should I use for my biller?

A number of billers are included in our system. If we do not have a biller’s address, please use the address that is indicated on the payment confirmation or statement the biller sends you. You can also find most billers’ payment addresses displayed in the Help or Contact Us areas of their websites.

How do I know my payment has been switched?

The easiest way to check the status of a switch is to look at the “Status” column of your ClickSWITCH account. Switches that have been completed and confirmed by your biller will display a “Completed” status. Switches that are still in process will display a “Mailed” status.

Can I switch a payment if I don’t have the billing information?

You need at least some billing information to switch the payment, as billers require certain information to confirm your identity and complete the switch. Your name, biller’s name and account number are required. For some billers, an address and phone number will populate automatically; however, if the biller is not in our database, we’ll need you to provide the biller’s address and phone number as well.

What if I want to submit additional switches later?

You can easily add additional switches at any time! Simply log back into your ClickSWITCH account and resume your session.

What if my switch isn’t completed and I miss a payment?

Monitoring your switch status is an important part of moving your account. It is advisable to keep enough money in your old account to cover each payment until the switch status for that payment has changed to “Completed,” or you’ve confirmed with your billers that your payment account information is updated in their systems.

My SwitchTRACK code isn’t working. What should I do?

Please contact your personal banker, call 360-754-3400 or visit a branch for assistance with your SwitchTRACK code.

Is ClickSWITCH secure?
