Generally, all Veterans using the VA Home Loan Guaranty benefit must pay a funding fee. This reduces the loan's cost to taxpayers considering that a VA loan requires no down payment and has no monthly mortgage insurance.
The funding fee is a percentage of the loan amount which varies based on the type of loan and your military category, if you are a first-time or subsequent loan user, and whether you make a down payment.
You have the option to finance the VA funding fee or pay it in cash, but the funding fee must be paid at closing time.
|Type of Veteran||Down payment||Percentage for
First time Use
|Regular Military||None||2.15%||3.3% *|
|5% or more||1.50%||1.50%|
|10% or more||1.25%||1.25%|
|Reserves/National Guard||None||2.4%||3.3% *|
|5% or more||1.75%||1.75%|
|10% or more||1.5%||1.5%|
|Type of Loan||Percentage for Either Type of Veteran Whether First Time or Subsequent Use|
|Manufactured Home Loans (NOT permanently affixed)||1.00%|
*The higher subsequent use fee does not apply to these types of loans if the
Veteran's only prior use of entitlement was for a manufactured home loan.
These are exemptions to the VA funding fee.
The VA Certificate of Eligibility from the VA is one of the most important required document that will be needed for a new VA loan or a VA Refinancing loan.
The VA Certificate of Eligibility (COE), is a document from the VA that provides the Veterans available eligibility amount for the VA Loan Program and if the Veteran is exempt from the VA Funding Fee.
