Change in Terms Notice Regarding Open End Loans

In order to comply with recent changes in the Truth in Lending regulation, Pen Air FCU will be advancing the due date on all open end loans to the last day of the month effective October 1, 2011.

Please note that this only pertains to open end loans. These loans are identified on monthly statements with “(Open End)” after the loan description. If you have an open end loan, you will notice the change on your statement.

What this means for you if you have an open end loan:

• If your due date is currently set for the last day of the month, nothing will change.

• If your due date is not the last day of the month, your payment will be moved from its current date to the last day of the month. Please know you can continue to make your loan payments on the same day and in the same manner as you do today.

You do not need to take advantage of the extra time. You can continue paying your loan as you are now. However, if you want or need the additional time, you will now have until the end of month.

Please contact us at 850‐505‐3200 or toll free at 877‐4PENAIR (473‐6247) if you have any questions or concerns about this change or how it will affect you.
