Description of Named Executive Officer Compensation

Total compensation to the named executive officers (as defined in Securities and Exchange Commission Regulation S-K Item 402(a)(3)) of Federal Home Loan Bank of Atlanta (the “Bank”) is primarily composed of two types of compensation: (1) base salary and (2) incentive compensation awarded under the Bank’s Executive Incentive Compensation Plan.

Base Salary

Individual base salaries and increases for the Bank’s named executive officers are determined and approved by the Bank’s Board of Directors. The philosophy of the Bank is that total compensation should be based on both individual performance as well as the overall financial performance of the Bank, and should be competitive within the financial services industry and market-area.

Set forth below are the 2006 base salaries for the following named executive officers of the Bank.

The Long-Term Incentive Compensation Plan is intended to promote the achievement of the Bank’s long-term profitability and business goals.
