Alphabet Soup of Banking

sc-alphabet-soup-updateOur lives are loaded with quick 140 character snippets of communications. We “lol,” we acknowledge our peeps, and we are preaching TGIF. It seems as if we are always shortening the words in our English language using acronyms, initialism, or truncation. I suggest that the world of banking may be the biggest pot of alphabet soup around. We may discuss a customer’s DDA, SAV, HELOC or CD activity, their FICO, the DTI and the LTV on a loan, and the need for MIP on an FHA loan or PMI on a conventional loan.

So here is our short guide to a few banking abbreviations:

  • DDA – Demand Deposit Account; your checking account.
  • SAV – Savings Account
  • HELOC – Home Equity Line of Credit
  • FICO – Fair Isaac Corporation credit score
  • DTI – Debt to Income; your monthly debt as a percentage of your monthly income
  • LTV – Loan to Value; your loan amount as a percentage of the value of your property
  • MIP – Mortgage Insurance Premium
  • FHA – Federal Housing Administration; or a type of loan that typically has a lower down payment
  • PMI – Private Mortgage Insurance
  • PITI – Principal + Interest + Taxes + Insurance; your monthly mortgage payment
  • FDIC – Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation

Here at Lafayette Community Bank (LCB), we communicate with our customers in a clear and concise manner.   Please call LCB at 765 429-7200 today to discuss all your banking needs.
