Mortgage lenders are now able to use FormFree AccountChek to satisfy Freddie Mac’s reverification of employment requirement

ATHENS, Ga. -- FormFree® today announced that its AccountChek® digital asset verification service supports a new enhancement to Freddie Mac's Loan Product Advisor® (LPASM) asset and income modeler (AIM) solution that makes assessment of borrower employment easier, faster, less expensive and more fraud-resistant.

Under Freddie Mac Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide requirements, with limited exceptions, mortgage lenders must verify each borrower's employment during the initial loan application, then again within 10 days of the loan's closing date. The verification, done prior to closing, is officially known as the 10-day Pre-Closing Verification or "10-day PCV."

To fulfill the Freddie Mac 10-day PCV requirement, lenders have historically had to furnish a verbal, email or written verification of employment (VOE) or pay a third-party service provider for an electronic VOE report. Now, with the latest enhancement to AIM, lenders can automatically satisfy the 10-day PCV requirement using account or payroll data using FormFree's AccountChek.

Automation of the 10-day PCV using account data is available to all Freddie Mac clients effective June 1. Freddie Mac describes the service as "an improved way to assess borrower employment" that offers superior speed, cost and fraud resistance compared to alternatives.

"Verifying a loan applicant's employment in the runup to the loan closing protects lenders, investors and borrowers alike. But the process can be time-consuming and expensive, and it's only gotten worse with so many Americans working remotely," said FormFree Chief Customer Officer Christy Moss. "The Work Number is expensive. Manual employment verification is time-consuming. Using direct-source asset data to fulfill the 10-day PCV is an economical and efficient solution, and it couldn't come at a better time for an industry that is losing sleep over razor-thin margins."

AccountChek streamlines the mortgage process by empowering borrowers to share their asset and payroll data electronically in an underwriter-friendly format lenders can use to assess asset, income, and employment in seconds. By leveraging a business-applicable refresh period, lenders that use AccountChek for a loan applicant's initial employment verification will be able to generate the VOE report within 10 days of closing.

George Mason Mortgage selects FormFree AccountChek to streamline its verification of borrower assets, income and employment

ATHENS, Ga. -- FormFree® today announced that Washington, D.C.-based George Mason Mortgage (GMM) has selected AccountChek® as the regional lender's exclusive provider of automated asset, income and employment verification services. GMM will use AccountChek to simplify the loan application experience for borrowers, improve productivity for its team of 120 mortgage loan officers and reduce loan cycle times.

How It Works

A seamless integration between FormFree and GMM's mortgage point-of-sale software makes it easy for loan teams to order AccountChek verification of asset (VOA) and verification of income/employment (VOIE) reports with just a few clicks. Instead of manually gathering bank statements and pay stubs and submitting them to GMM, loan applicants can use AccountChek to digitally verify assets, income and employment in seconds using high-fidelity data and documentation sourced directly from financial institutions and payroll providers. The information collected by AccountChek is then automatically mapped to the Form 1003 Universal Residential Loan Application in GMM's loan origination software, eliminating the time and risk associated with manual data entry.

Because FormFree is an authorized asset verification report supplier for Fannie Mae's Desktop Underwriter® (DU®) validation service and Freddie Mac's Loan Product Advisor® (LPASM) asset and income modeler (AIM) solution, GMM receives freedom from representations and warranties for certain validated loan components, resulting in greater certainty when selling loans on the secondary market.

Early Results

Since rolling out AccountChek enterprise-wide at the beginning of the year, GMM has seen an eight-fold uptick in orders for automated VOA and VOIE. According to SVP of Information Systems Margie Ambrosio, AccountChek is helping the lender deliver a better borrower experience and compressing the time required for loans to progress from application to closing to investor purchase.

"Our borrowers wanted an easier way to document their ability to pay," said GMM SVP of Information Systems Margie Ambrosio. "AccountChek combines asset, income and employment verification into one easy step for borrowers and gives us an underwriter-ready report that can be refreshed at any point between initial application and closing. Eliminating repetitive requests for paper documentation is already improving efficiency in our loan origination process, reducing per-loan costs and streamlining vendor due diligence - not to mention delighting our customers."

A wholly owned subsidiary of United Bank, George Mason Mortgage is licensed to serve mortgage customers throughout the United States and maintains retail branches in 12 states plus the District of Columbia.

FormFree’s AccountChek joins forces with Freddie Mac for industry-first automated assessment of direct deposit income

ATHENS, Ga. -- FormFree® today announced that its AccountChek® digital asset verification service will support a first-of-its-kind solution from Freddie Mac that allows mortgage lenders to assess a prospective homebuyer's income using direct deposit data. Available to mortgage lenders nationwide, Freddie Mac's Loan Product Advisor® (LPASM) asset and income modeler (AIM) solution fulfills mortgage verification of assets (VOA) and verification of income (VOI) requirements.

FormFree's AccountChek leverages tens of thousands of data connections with more than 16,000 financial institutions to instantly deliver consumer-permissioned asset and income verification all in one report. With an estimated 93% or more of U.S. workers paid via direct deposit, collapsing asset and income verification into a single, paperless step provides cost-saving efficiencies for lenders, reduces the risk of fraud and manual errors and helps borrowers get approved for - and into - their homes more quickly.

"We have long contended that a consumer's data - in particular, asset data sourced directly from financial institutions and extending over 12 months or more - holds the key to better understanding consumers' financial DNA, streamlining lenders' underwriting processes and driving inclusion in homeownership," said FormFree Founder and CEO Brent Chandler. "This latest enhancement to Freddie Mac's AIM brings lenders money-saving process efficiencies by making income assessment instantaneous."

"We're pleased to have FormFree's AccountChek product support this game-changing enhancement to our AIM offering," said Christina Randolph, Director, Strategic Technology Partnerships at Freddie Mac. "Partnering with FormFree has helped unlock more consumer financial data that allows us to uphold our risk management standards while streamlining the mortgage process and increasing homeownership opportunities."

A March Freddie Mac Single-Family Seller/Servicer Guide Bulletin will provide lenders additional requirements and information about when the solution will be available. Once Freddie Mac releases AIM for income using direct deposits, it will be available to lenders using LPA v5.06 or higher.
