IN THE MORTGAGORS’ INTERESTS Our policy of permitting mortgagors to make larger payments than those stipulated in the mortgage, allows the borrower to create a reserve which will carry him through possible future periods of reduced income. As a First Federal Savings mortgagor, you are never penalized for these larger payments—they benefit. Interest payments are immediately re duced and so long as the principal balance re mains below the amount required by regular pay ments, mortgagors are considered prepaid.
