Loan and Mortgage Terms Glossary

When Issued:

Short for "when, as, and if issued." the term indicates a conditional sale of a security; the security has been authorized but not yet issued and paid for. All when-issued transactions are on a conditional basis until the security is delivered to the buyer and payment is delivered to the issuer. Federal home loan bank system bonds are sold on a when-issued basis.
