The system may also undergo occasional longer maintenance windows for system updates on weekends and at the Bank’s discretion. eAdvantage may be unavailable during these times and users may receive an "eAdvantage is currently offline" notification.
eAdvantage goes into Reporting-Only Mode at the start of the first maintenance window (8:00 PM CT) and back into Full Availability at 7:00 AM (CT). This means information is in a "read only" state and the user will be unable to receive responses from the Bank until the next business day. Advance Transactions and Account Transfers will not be allowed during reporting-only hours.
Members can use eAdvantage to book most types of advances with terms from overnight to less than five years. There is no limit on the number of total advances that can be reserved through eAdvantage; however, any one single advance, as well as advances for any specific term, must be less than $15 million.
Online Transaction Security
To ensure only authorized personnel are initiating advance transactions within eAdvantage, additional verification is required. In 2015 and 2016, the Bank will be implementing a new authentication methodology that will replace digital certificates. Learn more »

To Remove or Add a User Administrator
eAdvantage is a private, secure site that requires members to have a user ID and password. New members must complete the eAdvantage Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement in order to gain access to the secure system. Each member assigns up to two individuals to be Administrators by completing the Authorized Personnel Form. eAdvantage administrators control access to eAdvantage by adding and deleting users for their member institution. Members that want to add or remove a new user Administrator and have an eAdvantage Terms and Conditions of Use Agreement on file with FHLB Des Moines only need to complete the Authorized Personnel Form.
