Downpayment Plus

Downpayment Plus (DDP®) is a matching program that provides down payment and closing cost assistance for income-eligible homebuyers. The assistance provided is in the form of a forgivable grant paid on behalf of the borrower at the time the borrower closes on mortgage financing with a participating FHLB member financial institution.

Through the Downpayment Plus Program, Bank of Springfield may access subsidies of up to $6,000 per household on behalf of eligible homebuyers in 2017. Homebuyers must meet income eligibility requirements, contribute at least $1,000 to the purchase of the home, participate in pre-purchase homebuyer counseling and live in the home as their primary resident.

Contact a BOS Mortgage Lender today to see if you may qualify for assistance.

Advantages eStatements have over paper statements:

  • Added Security - Because paper statements are printed, a number of people have an opportunity to look at the statement and obtain your account number and bank information.  In fact, fraudsters are known for stealing bank statements from mailboxes.  With eStatements, the only way someone else can access your statements is if you provide them with your BOS online banking login credentials.
  • Another added security benefit eStatements provide is that you no longer need to shred those old paper statements. 
  • Convenient Storage - For a number of reasons, people want to store several years of bank statements.  This means storing paper statements in boxes or filing cabinets which takes up valuable storage space in the home. You can retrieve your eStatements through online banking for two years.  However, if you need to go back further, BOS stores your eStatements for seven years.  Most customers download their eStatements onto their computers or store them on a flash drive.  This allows you to store virtually all of your statements on a device the size of your thumb, freeing up that valuable storage space in your home.
  • Easy Access – If you need to look at a previous bank statement, it can be frustrating to go through stacks of paper statements to find the statement you need.  With eStatements, you can quickly search the file names to find the statement. 


BOS Debit Cards

Good News!

BOS debit cards have the new EMV chip technology. This chip technology provides your debit card with additional layers of protection against fraud and forgery. When you use your card at a chip activated terminal, the embedded chip generates a one-time use code. This code is virtually impossible to counterfeit and helps reduce in-store fraud.
