TEXT-S&P corrects FHLB bonds, assigns negative outlook

April 5 - Standard & Poor's Ratings Services today corrected its ratings on
seven Federal Home Loan Bank bonds by assigning a negative outlook to the
ratings. On Aug. 16, 2011, we assigned 'AA+' ratings on these bonds, but as a
result of an error, we did not assign an outlook to them.	
The negative outlook on these bonds reflects the negative outlook on the 	
long-term rating on the U.S. We expect that the Federal Home Loan Banks, as a 	
government-sponsored entity, will continue to benefit from the implied support 	
of the U.S. government for its systemwide debt securities and will continue 	
normal lending and funding operations. Our ratings on a supported entity 	
typically do not exceed those on its supporting entity.
