  • Forbearance;
  • Late charge waivers; and
  • Suspension of credit bureau reporting on affected loans, in order to avoid damage to credit records to veteran borrowers.

VA Circular 26-19-2 provides guidance for borrowers and considerations regarding loan origination during the federal government shutdown.  The issues discussed are:

  • Employment directly affected by the shutdown;
  • Income verification guidelines;
  • Underwriting related to income analysis; and
  • Flood insurance requirements.
