REMINDER!
• VA does not have a maximum dollar amount for the VA-guaranteed loan.
• However, the lender generally needs a 25% guaranty from VA in order to sell the loan on the secondary market.
• If you are unsure if you have a marketable loan, speak to your company’s post closing department or the investor.

Maximum Guaranty

Effective December 10, 2004, VA’s maximum guaranty for certain loans in excess of \$144,000 is 25% of the Freddie Mac conforming loan limit.

Maximum Guaranty*

*See www.homeloans.va.gov/new.htm for higher cost county loan limits for 2009.

How does VA’s guaranty work?

Basic entitlement: \$36,000

\$36,000 X 4 = \$144,000

\$36,000 + \$68,250 = \$104,250

\$104,250 X 4 = \$417,000

*Generally, the lender needs a 25% guaranty in order to sell the loan on the secondary market.

Notes:

• The maximum guaranty table is located in Chapter 3, section 4a of the VA Lenders Handbook
• The percentage amount of guaranty is based on the loan amount including the funding fee.*

*If included in loan amount.

“Remaining Entitlement”

Can we use it?

Yes! We can!*

*The lender is responsible for ensuring they have a marketable loan.

Calculating Remaining Entitlement

*Bonus entitlement is increased by 50% for loans in Alaska, Hawaii, Guam and the Virgin Islands.
