MPF Program Announces Kick-Off of Annual Eligibility Certification and Streamlined Documentation Requirements
Effective Date: January 1, 2020
The MPF Program would like to remind PFIs and Servicers that the Annual Eligibility Certification (AEC) process will begin soon. We are also pleased to announce that for the upcoming AEC we have streamlined the documentation requirements.
Forms OG1 and OG2
The 2019 Forms OG1 and OG2 will be available on the eMPF® website as of January 1, 2020, and PFIs and Servicers must submit their 2019 Forms OG1 and OG2 with any supporting documentation by January 31, 2020.
The 2019 Form OG1 will be pre-populated with the PFI/Servicer’s 2018 OG1 (Annual Eligibility Certification) submitted responses. PFIs and Servicers are required to review each pre-populated response and make necessary changes needed to reflect the most current information, prior to submitting. Please note that if your designation status has changed during the calendar year covered by this AEC, the OG1 will not be pre-populated with your prior answers.
The Form OG2 (MPF Fidelity and Errors & Omissions Insurance Worksheet) will not be pre-populated. PFIs and Servicers are required to complete the form with the most current insurance information, prior to submitting.
The forms must be submitted electronically via the eMPF website by an employee of the PFI or Servicer who has delegated authority per the Delegation of Authority on file or an officer authorized to execute agreements and amendments.
PFIs or Servicers deemed to be noncompliant with MPF Program requirements, including the requirement to submit timely Forms OG1 and OG2, may be subject to the following:
- Suspension; and/or
- Compensatory Fees.
Streamlined Documentation Requirements
The MPF Program is pleased to announce that we have streamlined the documentation requirements for the AEC. In addition to completing Form OG1 and Form OG2, PFIs and Servicers are required to provide certain documents, which, beginning with the 2019 AEC, have been streamlined as follows, to reduce the time needed to complete the PFI/Servicer’s submission:
- Fidelity Bond Insurance and Error and Omissions Insurance certificates, policies or insurance declarations with the following information highlighted, if applicable, in the documents that are submitted:
- Coverage amounts
- Where the applicable MPF Bank listed as additional insured or loss payee
- Type of loss coverage (aggregate loss or per mortgage loss)
- Deductible amount
- Documents for mortgage operations, origination and/or servicing exams and audits are only required to be submitted if there are any findings of non-compliance.
- Your most recent QC Summary Report provided to the senior management for both pre-closing and post-closing reviews of MPF Mortgage Loans.
- A redlined version of your in-house QC plan is required only if substantive revisions were made during the time period that the AEC applies to.
- Detailed action plan to remediate non-compliance with any MPF Program requirement.
- Any other documentation that is specifically requested by your MPF Bank or the MPF Provider.
