  1. Offer rates and terms are subject to change without notice. Credit and collateral approval required. Offer available for new UMB home equity line of credit ("HELOC") customers. This offer does not apply to existing UMB HELOC customers. To qualify for this promotional rate, the property secured by the HELOC must be your primary residence. Additional restrictions and limitations apply. The introductory annual percentage rate ("APR") will be in effect for the first 12 months of your loan term, even if you do not draw on the line of credit during that period.

    After your 1-year promotional period ends, your APR will be determined as follows:
    After the promotion period ends, your APR may vary for the remaining life of the loan and can change monthly, but will not be lower than 3.49% or exceed 18.00% during the life of your loan. The variable APR that applies to your loan after promotional period is based on the Wall Street Journal Prime rate ("Prime Rate") plus a margin, which will vary based on your checking account relationship with UMB, loan to value ratio, line amount, and whether the property securing your loan is your primary residence. As of March 16, 2020, the Prime Rate was 3.25%, and the variable rate for UMB HELOCs ranged from 3.74% APR to 6.75% APR. To qualify for the lowest APR available, you must have a UMB Select Checking account, the combined value of all liens of the property should not exceed 80% of the property's appraised value, and the line amount must be greater than $100,000.

    Payment Information:
    Payments are due monthly. Your minimum payment during the draw period will equal the amount of your accrued interest and finance charges, plus any amount past due and all other charges. At the end of the draw period, your HELOC will enter the 20-year repayment period and your minimum monthly payment will include principal and interest plus any amount past due and all other charges, or $100, whichever is greater. An increase in the APR may increase the amount of your minimum payment.

    Additional information:
    Other introductory rates may be available. Not all loan programs are available in all states, or for all loan amounts; additionally, some methods for accessing funds may not be available in every state.

    Hazard insurance is required for the property that secures the HELOC. Flood insurance is required for properties in special flood hazard areas. Required payments do not include amounts for taxes and insurance premiums. You will be responsible for annual taxes and insurance.

  2. Qualifying checking accounts include UMB Select and UMB Value Checking. The origination fee is waived for customers who open a UMB Select or UMB Value Checking account; the fee for customers who open a UMB Free Checking account or have no UMB checking account is the lesser of 1% of the line amount or $250. Current UMB customers may qualify for an origination fee waiver based on account type. See a UMB personal banker for more information.
  3. Exceptions for HELOCs secured by collateral in the state of Texas, due to state law. Visit a UMB branch or call your UMB personal banker for more information.
  4. Restrictions and documentation requirements may apply. All loans subject to credit and collateral approval. Geographic restrictions apply.
