  • Escrow Analysis | Vibrant Credit Union

    Understanding your escrow analysis Join one of our Vibrant mortgage service specialists as she walks you through the typical escrow analysis statement and answers some of your most pressing questions about why your monthly payment may be changing. Note, if you pay prior to January 1, 2024, your online account may not reflect your updated 2024 payment amount. Please call first to verify your updated payment amount. The basics What is an escrow account? An escrow account is a special holding account we use to pay your property taxes and homeowners insurance premiums. We manage this account for you so that you only need to make one monthly payment and don’t have to worry about multiple payment due dates. The amount of money that goes into your escrow account is based on our best estimate of what your insurance and property tax expenses will be in the coming year. What is an escrow analysis? he amount of money that goes into your escrow account reflects our best estimate of your property tax and homeowners insurance premiums for the coming year. Because these expenses can fluctuate over time (based on your home’s changing market value and other factors), it’s rare that the amount set aside for your escrow account exactly matches what is paid out. Every fall, we analyze your account to see whether we’ve set aside more money than you need (an overage) or not enough (a shortage). We also take a look at your latest insurance premiums and property tax bills so that we can adjust your payments for next year to reflect any changes. What happens if there's not enough money in my escrow account to pay my taxes and insurance? If your account has a shortage, your taxes and premiums will still be paid—but you will need to pay the difference back to us. There are two ways to do this: We can either increase your mortgage payments next year to cover that amount, or you can submit a payment for the entire sum before noon on Saturday, December 30, 2023. What happens if there's MORE money in my escrow account than was needed? If your account has an overage of less than $50, we’ll carry the remainder over to next year to provide a cushion for any potential shortages. If your account has an over of $50 or more, you will receive a check for the surplus amount that you can spend as you see fit. Can I choose not to escrow my insurance plemiums and property taxes? In some cases, you can. Contact us and we’ll determine if that is an option for you. I have more questions. How do I reach an escrow specialist? You can email us directly or call 1-800-323-5109. Monthly payments When does my new monthly payment go into effect? January 1, 2024. If you typically make your January payment prior to the first of the month, please make sure to adjust that payment to reflect the new payment amount and avoid any late fees. IMPORTANT: Your online account will not reflect the updated amount due until January 1, 2024. This is so that we can make adjustments for members who choose to pay all or part of their escrow shortages up until December 30, 2023. Why is my monthly mortgage payment going up? While the principal and interest on your mortgage payment haven’t changed, your property taxes and/or homeowners insurance premiums have increased since your last escrow analysis. We therefore have to set aside a larger amount of money each month to cover these increases. How do I update my automatic payment? You need to complete and submit an escrow change form to us by noon on December 30, 2023. If you pay your mortgage through a non-Vibrant account, you will need to provide your account number. If you pay extra toward your principal balance or would like to start, make sure to note the payment amount on your form. My mortgage payment has increased by more than my taxes and/or insurance premiums have. Why? That indicates that your escrow account had a shortage in 2023 (your estimated escrow contributions were smaller than your actual taxes and/or premiums). In addition to increasing your payment to accommodate those higher charges, you also need to make up the amount of the shortage. If you prefer, you can pay some or all of the shortage amount by noon on December 30, 2023, and decrease your payments for next year. Why is my monthly morgage payment going down? While the amount of principal and interest you pay toward your mortgage hasn’t changed, either your property tax assessment or homeowners’ insurance premiums have declined since last year. Enjoy the savings! If I pay into the escrow now, can I avoid my payment going up at all? No, the payments will always be based at minimum of what your taxes and insurance are. Since those typically increase annually, paying the shortage does not mean the monthly amounts won't increase for next year. Escrow shortages Can I pay my shortage up front? How long do I have to make the payment before it affects my payment? Yes, you can pay all or a portion of your shortage. This must be done by noon on Saturday, December 30, 2023. How do I pay my shortage? You can make your payment through our online banking platform. After logging in, you will see your home loan appear on the main dashboard screen. Click on your home loan to expand this area. Select "Pay Now." In the bulleted options, you will see an "Escrow Only" option. Enter the appropriate amount here. Finish your transaction by selecting "Submit Transfer." Upon payment, please contact us to have your 2024 payments updated accordingly. Escrow overages When will I receive a refund of my escrow overage? Your check will arrive within two weeks after you receive your escrow analysis letter. Will I receive a check, or will it be deposited into my account? You will receive a check in the mail. I had an overage, but I didn't receive a check. Why not? If your overage amount was less than $50, it remains on deposit in your escrow account to provide a cushion for any potential shortages in 2024. It's that time of year—your annual escrow analysis shows what your monthly mortgage payment will be in 2024. Get answers to your escrow questions

  • Is a Certificate of Deposit (CD) right for you?

    Is a Certificate of Deposit (CD) right for you? With interest rates high, now is a great time to consider adding a CD to your financial portfolio. You shouldn’t expect to become fabulously wealthy by opening a Certificate of Deposit (CD). But if you’re looking for a safe place to earn a guaranteed return on your savings, right now is a great time to consider adding a CD to your financial portfolio. With interest rates rising, many CDs are paying the highest rates consumers have seen in more than 20 years. How is a CD different from an ordinary savings account? In simple terms, a Certificate of Deposit is a type of savings account—one that pays higher interest on your balance in exchange for your promise not to withdraw any funds for a set period of time, which at Vibrant can range from 3 months to 5 years. Right now, if you deposit $5,000 in the average savings account, you can expect to earn about $30 in interest after 13 months, provided you don’t make a withdrawal. But if you put that $5,000 in Vibrant’s 13-month CD , currently paying 5.00% APY (that stands for "Annual Percentage Yield"), you’ll earn about $270 in interest over the same period, provided you don’t withdraw the funds before the certificate’s maturity date. Further, so long as your deposit balance doesn’t exceed NCUA insurance limits ($250,000 in total deposits per account holder at a single credit union), those returns are guaranteed so long as you don’t need to withdraw your cash early—and it never hurts to have an extra level of assurance considering recent volatility in the banking sector . Talk to us if you’re interested in depositing more than $250,000 for cost-free strategies for maximizing your deposit insurance coverage. The kinds of people who should consider investing in a CD If your current financial goals fall into any of the following categories, a CD might be the right solution for you. You’re saving for a short-term goal If you’ve been setting aside money for a down payment on a home, a new car or boat, a dream vacation, or a wedding, then putting your savings in a CD is a good way to grow your nest egg faster without committing to a long-term investment. You want to jump-start your retirement savings Even if retirement is a long way off, you can invest in an IRA CD at any age—and, right now, potentially earn a better rate of return than you would through your 401(k). With an IRA CD, your investment itself is tax-deductible (similar to the way that 401(k) contributions are made with pre-tax dollars). And, unlike a conventional CD, an IRA CD enables you to put off paying taxes on the interest income you earn until it’s time to make a withdrawal from your retirement plan. You can even roll over your IRA into a different retirement savings plan without tax penalties once your 401(k) starts earning more. You want to protect your cash against inflation When inflation is high, the value of your savings decreases. Putting your savings into a CD can help protect your money by locking in a fixed interest rate until the economy improves. You want a safe and secure place to park your savings CDs are a low-risk way to grow your money. The interest rate is fixed, so you know exactly how much money you will earn. Further, Vibrant CDs are insured by the NCUA, which means your money is protected up to $250,000 per account holder (and you can talk with a banker about strategies to maximize your NCUA coverage if you want to invest more). You want a great rate but don’t have a lot of money to invest While many financial institutions require a minimum deposit amount in the four figures to get their best CD rates, all of Vibrant’s CDs are available with a minimum $5 deposit. The bottom line Before you put your savings in a CD, think carefully about when you will need to access the money you’re setting aside. All financial institutions charge some kind of early withdrawal penalty if you need to close a CD before it reaches maturity—up to and including giving up all the interest you’ve earned to date. Once you decide how long you can afford to set aside your savings, compare your options to find the term and interest rate that work best for you. See Vibrant’s current CD rates, then reach out to one of our personal bankers for help opening an account or open an account online . Disclosures Before you open a Certificate of Deposit, be aware that there may be penalties imposed if you withdraw your money before the end of the term. Unless you specify otherwise, Vibrant's certificates will automatically renew at the end of the term—the 13-month CD automatically renews into a 12-month CD at maturity. Vibrant will contact you before your CD reaches maturity to help you choose not to renew or if you'd prefer to renew for a different term. All Vibrant CDs are federally insured by NCUA.
