In most cases, lenders can manage their case processing needs, including loan endorsement activities, case cancellation, case reinstatement, case transfer, and other functions in the FHA Connection (FHAC) system.

Lenders access FHAC directly or through the FHA Connection Business to Government (B2G) interface. Technical details for entities utilizing a direct interface with FHAC are available on the FHA Connection Business to Government (B2G) Interface web page.


Case Cancellation and Case Reinstatement

Lenders must submit requests for case cancellation and case reinstatement through the Case Cancel/Reinstate Screen in FHAC. Most requests will be processed automatically through the system.

When FHAC identifies an exception that requires FHA staff intervention, it will direct lenders to submit the request on the applicable template below and supporting documentation to the FHA Resource Center at answers@hud.gov.

The functionality and process described above will soon be available through the Business to Government (B2G) interface. Before its availability, B2G lenders will be notified of the implementation date and that the B2G guide has been updated to include the new functionality.

In the meantime, lenders may submit these requests directly through the FHAC application or must submit them and supporting documentation using the applicable template below to the FHA Resource Center at answers@hud.gov.


Case Transfer and Mortgage Insurance Certificate Corrections

All case transfer and Mortgage Insurance Certificate (MIC) correction requests must be submitted to the FHA Resource Center at answers@hud.gov, utilizing the template for each process provided below:
