Lender Notification Layout

The Lender Notification report file provides information about any irregular results from the application of Single Family monthly (periodic) mortgage insurance premium payments. The information is generated as payments are processed.  Lender Notifications do not include situations when there has been a payment made on an invalid case.

Using the FHA Connection, you should check your notifications 3-5 business days after you send your payment and again after the Reconciliation report file has been generated. For the Alternate Report Retrieval process (i.e., secure file transfer process), the Lender Notification report file is updated monthly and available on the 13th day of the month.

Note: The Servicer/Payee Name field has been added to the Lender Notification report file. You will have the option of including this field when you download a Lender Notification file. Do not attempt to process a Lender Notification report file with the additional field until your system has been updated to accommodate it. Otherwise, you may experience system errors, including unusable data.
