Subpart B—RUS Cushion of Credit Account Computations and Procedures

§1785.67   Definitions.

Accumulated (deferred) interest means interest allowed to accumulate up to, and including, the basis date of RUS notes covering loans approved before June 5, 1957. The accumulated interest is payable in equal periodic installments over the remaining life of the notes.

Act means the Rural Electrification Act of 1936, as amended (7 U.S.C. 901 et seq.).

Advance payment means a voluntary unscheduled payment on an RUS note, made prior to October 2, 1987, credited to the advance payment account of a borrower.

Cushion of Credit Payment means a voluntary unscheduled payment on an RUS note made after October 1, 1987, credited to the cushion of credit account of a borrower.

Current interest means interest payable periodically as it accrues.

Fund means the Rural Electrification and Telephone Revolving Fund established pursuant to the Act.

Interest credit means interest earned on balances in advance payment or cushion of credit accounts. Since the periodic installments are established by the terms of the notes, the interest credits cannot serve to change the total amount of each installment; therefore, an amount equal to the interest credits is added to the principal installment due. On receipt of the full installments, amounts equal to the interest credits (the principal offsets) are added to the respective advance payment accounts.

Prepayment means a voluntary unscheduled payment which the borrower instructs RUS to apply directly and immediately to the principal of an RUS note.

RUS notes means those notes, bonds, or other obligations evidencing indebtedness created by loans made by RUS pursuant to titles I, II, or III of the Act.

Subaccount means the Rural Economic Development Subaccount established pursuant to the Act as part of the Fund.
