Step 2: Determine Available Collateral

Since the FHLBNY is a secured lender and all of our advances require collateral, it’s important that you know how much collateral you have at the FHLBNY prior to requesting an advance.

Members can view their Collateral Position Report on 1Link®, which enumerates a member’s borrowing potential. Once you log into 1Link®, click on the “Information Reporting” tab, then under the “Reports” drop-down list click on “Special Reports,” then select “Collateral Customer Summary Report.”

Note: When you transact an advance through 1Link®, you will be able to view your available borrowing amount and your current collateral position on the same transaction screen.
