Beginning January 1, 2013, issuers of Government National Mortgage Association (“Ginnie Mae”) mortgage-backed securities must submit their insurance and annual audited financial statements electronically. From June 1, 2012 through December 31, 2012, issuers had the option to submit their documents electronically or by mail in paper form. Before June 1, 2012, Ginnie Mae only accepted submissions in paper form. Documents that must be submitted electronically include annual audited financial statements, including required supplemental reports, fidelity bond insurance renewal forms, and errors and omissions insurance renewal forms.
Additional information on filing procedures, file-naming formats, and other instructions is available in Ginnie Mae’s Mortgage-Backed Securities Guide 5500.3 Rev. 1, Appendix VI-20 and in All Participant Memorandum (APM) 12-09: Electronic Submission of Issuers’ Insurance and Annual Audited Financial Documents. Both of these documents are available on the Issuer Resources page of Ginnie Mae’s website.
