Setting up automatic transfers including loan payments is easy with Online Banking. Click here to learn how >

You may also use the Automatic Payments and Transfers form to set up automatic transfers to or from your accounts. If you are withdrawing from a non-ASB account, you will need the account number and routing number, a voided check, or a copy of your statement. Return the form to any branch or mail to:

American Savings Bank

PO Box 2300
Honolulu, HI 96804-2300

We need 5 business days from the date of receipt of your form to set up, change, or cancel your transfer. For loan payments we will send you a letter confirming the start date of your first automatic payment. Please continue to make your payments until you receive your confirmation letter.

  1. Offer is a two-year, three-year, or four-year promotion (Promotion Period): Annual Percentage Rate (APR) is 1.49% fixed for two years, 1.99% fixed for three years, or 2.49% fixed for four years, from the date your new EEX account is opened. Offer is for a qualifying first or second lien request on an owner-occupant or first lien request on an investor application received 03/22/2021 through 06/30/2021 that funds by 07/31/2021. Promotional rates require automatic payments from an ASB personal checking account. Cancellation of automatic payments anytime during the life of the loan may increase your rate to the current non discounted rate. Offer is not available for a second lien request on an investor line, on properties listed for sale within the prior six months, to any existing ASB HELOC account opened prior to 04/01/2021 and secured by the subject property, or when paying down/off any existing ASB residential mortgage loan balance. If you have not closed your loan and a new promotion begins with a different rate, you may opt for the new promotion. After the Promotion Period ends, the interest rate is variable. Current Variable Rate effective 03/15/2021 is 4.50% APR, and is subject to change monthly based on the highest Prime Rate published in the Wall Street Journal, plus a margin (subject to the floor rate of 4.50% APR; maximum APR is 18.00%). If your line amount is more than $25,000, a fee of $500 will be assessed if you request we close it within three years from the agreement date. This fee will not be assessed if: (i) your line is $25,000 or less, (ii) you sell the collateral to an unrelated/unaffiliated third-party, or (iii) you pay off your loan with proceeds from a real estate secured loan from us. EEX must be secured by fee simple property located in Hawaii. Fire, hurricane, flood (if in flood hazard zone) and localized peril (if in a lava hazard zone) insurance policies are required at homeowner’s expense.

    For owner-occupant Equity ExpressSM (EEX) Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) accounts up to $250,000 (excluding properties listed for sale within the prior six months), American Savings Bank (ASB) will pay or waive fees and costs for flood certification (up to $9), bank’s title insurance (up to $125), credit report (up to $2.50 per borrower), trust review, condo review, mortgage recording, recording fee for the release of third-party mortgage, and valuation through an automated valuation model and property condition report (up to $185) of ASB’s choice; however, at their own cost, customers may request an appraisal at an estimated cost between $500 and $1,500. For owner-occupant EEXs up to $250,000 (excluding properties listed for sale within the prior six months), receive a credit of up to $500 at loan signing to offset a third-party lender’s early closing fee when you make an initial advance on your new EEX to pay off your existing home equity line balance of at least $10,000 with that third-party lender. This early closing fee must be assessed and identified by the third-party lender through its payoff procedure in order to receive the credit at loan closing. If you do not have an ASB personal checking account, a Kalo Checking account must be opened. Please see the Personal Deposit Account Terms and Conditions for other terms, conditions and fees for Kalo Checking accounts.
  2. Line of credit amount depends on home equity borrower's creditworthiness and occupancy.
  3. Promotion effective for requests submitted 03/22/2021 through 06/30/2021. The promotional rate applies up to five Fixed Rate Equity Loan Options (FRELO) during the draw period of your HELOC; and is available to existing and new owner-occupant EEX accounts with automatic payments from an ASB personal checking account. See the FRELO Conversion Addendum for minimum and maximum amounts for conversion to a FRELO. Based on a 15-year fixed rate loan of $30,000 at 2.99% APR, there will be 180 monthly principal and interest payments of $207.03. Current non-promotional rate as of 03/15/2021 is 6.00% APR for a 15-year fixed rate loan. Other FRELO terms and rates are available. FRELO may be added upon your request. New or existing investor EEX accounts in the first lien position may also qualify for the promotional rate when meeting the same conditions as owner-occupant EEX accounts above and adding 0.50% to the owner-occupant rate.
