SOFR Advances will reset each Business Day, except that in respect of any interest period, the last two (2) Business Days of such interest period shall be a deemed a “suspension period”. During a suspension period, the index for each day during that suspension period will be the index value for the reset date immediately after the first day of such suspension period.

Principal Prepayment Policy
SOFR Advances generally are not prepayable prior to their stated maturity. The FHLB may offer programs with varying repayment structures that may include non-prepayment periods or “lock-outs.” In cases where a prepayment of a “locked-out” Advance is desired, the FHLB may allow a prepayment with applicable fees that would make the FHLB economically indifferent to such a prepayment.
Submission of Application
A SOFR Advance Application is required for each borrowing.
