2019 Stock Recalculation Notice

posted on Tuesday, March 12, 2019 in Business News

Each year, FHLB Des Moines reviews our members’ total assets to determine capital stock requirements for each individual member. According to our Capital Plan, your institution must maintain membership stock in a dollar amount equal to 0.12 percent of your total assets as of December 31, 2018, with a maximum of $10 million and a minimum of $10,000.

If your stock requirement has increased since the last time we calculated your membership stock requirement, we will purchase additional stock on your behalf by debiting from your Demand Deposit Account (DDA). Conversely, if your stock requirement has decreased since the last time we calculated your membership stock requirement, we will repurchase stock and credit your DDA.

Adjustments for 2019 will take place on Wednesday, March 27, 2019. Please note the following timeline of events and action items:

March 12, 2019: Locate your capital stock requirement 
The membership stock calculation is currently available through your Annual Calculation of Minimum Capital Stock Requirement statement within the Statements section on eAdvantage.
