*Payments shown do not include taxes or insurance, actual payments may be greater. Rates and offers are in effect as of September 20, 2016, offered for a limited time and subject to change without notice. Example based on $400,000 loan. Other restrictions apply. Rate is variable and can increase by no more than 2 percentage points after the initial five year period and at each subsequent annual rate adjustment, with a lifetime maximum adjustment of ---% (--- for this example). Since the value of the index in the future is unknown, the First Adjustment Payments displayed are based on the current index plus margin (fully indexed rate) as of the date above.
LTV over 60% generally requires a Loan Level Pricing Adjustment. LLPA varies dependent upon credit score.
If you or your spouse works for a company that often transfers employees to different locations, a 5/5 ARM (adjustable rate mortgage) Conforming Loan can help you enjoy lower monthly payments while suiting your need for mobility.
ARMs usually have lower interest rates to start than fixed mortgages. That translates into lower monthly payments. However, the rate will adjust, in the case of the 5/5 ARM Conforming Loan, at the 6-year mark and every 5 years thereafter. If you think you may have to move before that date, 5/5 ARM Conforming Loan may be a great option for you.
As with any ARM, the risk with a 5/5 ARM is that rate will go up in the 6th year. However, if you’re positive your company will transfer you before that date, you can pay less or get a bigger house and then sell prior to the rate change. Talking to a PenFed representative can help you determine if a 5/5 ARM Conforming Loan is right for you.
All Adjustable Rate Mortgage Programs: The application of additional loan level pricing adjustments will be determined by various loan attributes to include but not limited to the loan-to-value (LTV) ratio, credit score, transaction type, property type, product type, occupancy, and subordinate financing.
5/5 ARMs: Offers available for purchases and refinances. The initial rate can change by no more than 2 percentage points after the initial five year period and at each subsequent annual rate adjustment, never to exceed 5 percentage points above the initial rate. When the rate adjusts, your new rate will be the then current index plus margin, which is currently set at 2.000% for the new products, as long as it does not exceed the 2% adjustment cap.
Investment properties not eligible for offer.
Conforming Mortgages: For loan amounts from $25,000 to $417,000 (Loan amounts up to $625,500 are available in Guam, Alaska and Hawaii).

In a fixed mortgage, your monthly principal and interest payments remain the same for the life of the loan, usually 15 or 30 years. A 30-year mortgage will have lower monthly payments, but the 15-year allows you to repay the loan twice as fast, saving more than half the total interest costs.
If you plan to stay in your house for many years, a 30-year mortgage can help you afford a bigger or more expensive property and still have plenty of time to build up equity in it.
In an adjustable rate mortgage, your monthly principle and interest payments remain the same for only a certain number of years. If you don’t refinance prior to the end of the first payment term, the rate can go up or down based on the market.
If you plan to move or refinance before the term adjusts, an ARM can help you get a lower interest rate initially. It's important to take into account the housing market in your area and in general in order to decide if an ARM is a good choice for you.
