Due to the devastating impact of hurricanes and other natural disasters, the MPF Program would like to remind PFIs and Servicers that the MPF Program policies related to originating and servicing of mortgage loans affected by major disasters are included in the product specific MPF Servicing Guides (See MPF Program Guide Section “9.1 Major Disaster Related Policy” for more details).
Please note this reminder is specific to natural disasters only, and is not applicable to MPF loans impacted by COVID-19. For COVID-19 related hardships, PFIs and Servicers should refer to the MPF Program’s COVID-19 related policies and guidance.
As a reminder, in the event that a mortgage property is located in an area affected by a Major Disaster, Servicers must report settlements to the MPF Provider regardless of the claim amount using the Property Insurance Loss Draft Notification form (Form SG342) and include all required supporting documentation.
