FHLB Dallas began accepting eNotes July 21, 2020, to provide collateral value to its members. An eNote is a promissory note executed and signed electronically and stored in an eVault. There are many benefits to eNotes, including a faster signing process, fewer errors and improved audit capabilities. Members who plan to use eNotes should first contact Collateral Services (800.541.0597) to begin the process. The process to use eNotes as collateral involves several steps including enrollment in MERS, naming FHLB Dallas as a Secured Party for the eNotes and using MERS eDelivery to transmit the eNotes to an approved eVault.
