Master Policy Resources
The FHFA in conjunction with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac has completed work with the MI industry to implement
the new Master Policy for mortgage insurance applications received on or after October 1, 2014. The new Master
Policy provides a much greater degree of process transparency and clarity of coverage. However, as will be the
case with all MI provider Master Policies, we anticipate there will be impacts to established processes and systems
primarily affecting Servicing operations.
Our Master Policy resource center is intended to provide you with a central location to access a range of resources including sample policy documentation, operating guides, and reporting requirements for the
new Master Policy.
We recommend bookmarking this page as we will continue to provide updates and additional materials throughout
the implementation phase.

Servicing and Operating Guides (Effective with new Master Policy)
The new Master Policy requires monthly reporting for both performing and delinquent loans. In recognition of the operational changes the monthly reporting provisions may bring about, we are planning for a phased in approach for the new requirements. Genworth will not require the new reporting to be delivered on Day One, but rather Servicers will only be required to provide a minimum data set (as highlighted in green in the MILAR reporting template or Minimum Data Set template), beginning July 1, 2015.
Full MILAR Servicing Template
The Mortgage Insurance companies have created a uniform, updated template for reporting monthly loan activity. This template should be used by Servicers with Delegated Workout Authority or those with a large volume of workout activity to report.
Minimum Data Set Template
Servicers who do not currently take advantage of Delegated Workout Authority or do not currently use the full MILAR template can opt to use the abbreviated Minimum Data Set template which contains only 32 fields to meet the reporting requirements.
Mortgage Insurance discussed in this website is underwritten by Genworth Mortgage Insurance Corporation.
