less your first mortgage balance. This is a fixed rate second

Equity Saver Advantage at ECU - Members with
bi-weekly payroll deposits may split a monthly payment in half and apply the
half-payment to the loan balance on the day of their deposit. The
more frequent principal reductions and the two extra half-payments (26
in all) cuts interest and reduces the term on loans. This service is
provided at no extra charge and can save a member hundreds of
dollars over the term of a loan.
