Do I have to use all of the Network Service Provides to take advantage of the program?

No, (example: I am using a real estate agent participating in this program, but not a lender) you may use any or all of the contributions available to you.  Each contribution is independent of the other.  Each participating vendor member is offered a significant savings/benefit for employees who wish to participate in this program which may or may not be available with other vendors/providers outside of the EBA program.  The savings come directly FROM the Network Service Providers.


What if I am buying the home with someone who is not an employee of Employer Benefit Advisors Program company?

Only one of the employees purchasing the home has to be an employee of an Employer Benefit Advisors Program Member company.  However, the home does have to be the primary residence for that employee.
