Single Family Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premium (MIP)

Upfront mortgage insurance premium (MIP) is required for most of the FHA's Single Family mortgage insurance programs. Lenders must remit upfront MIP within 10 calendar days of the mortgage closing or disbursement date, whichever is later. This page provides links to information on the collection and processing of upfront MIP payments for all case (loan) types except a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) or Title I manufactured housing loan.
