Ginnie Mae is enhancing the disclosure of HECM MBS (HMBS reverse mortgage pools) data in the existing Factor A II and Factor B II files. There are two changes related to this enhancement:

1) Factor Files

Note:  There is no change to the Factor file layouts or schedule. The enhancements are internal to the existing file, populating data in existing fields.

The following data enhancements will be effective with the regularly published Factor A II file to be published January 6, 2017 and Factor B II file to be published January 10, 2017: This is for HMBS Pools only.

  • Field 9, “Pool Interest Rate” -- For all HMBS pools, this field will contain the current period security interest rate. Previously this field contained the original security rate for fixed rate HMBS pools.
  • Field 15, “Original Interest Rate” -- For all HMBS pools, this field will contain the original at issuance security interest rate. Previously this field contained spaces (blanks) for fixed rate HMBS pools.
  • Field 16, “Prospective Interest Rate” -- For all HMBS pools, this field will contain the Prospective Security Interest Rate that will be in effect for the next reporting period (the prospective rate becomes the current rate next reporting period). Previously this field contained spaces (blanks) for fixed rate HMBS pools.

Previous to the changes above, for HMBS Fixed Rate pools, Fields 13 through 18 had been filled with spaces (blanks). Note that, for HMBS Fixed Rate pools, Fields 13, 14, 17, and 18 will continue to be filled with spaces (blanks).

2) HMBS Supplemental File: The final “hsuppl_yyyymm.txt” file will be published on December 6th, 2016. This file and its layout and sample will be removed from the Disclosure Data Download page on January 5, 2017.

All Factor files and the HMBS Supplemental File are found on the Disclosure Data Download page. For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov.

The Ginnie Mae Disclosure Bulletin of September 18, 2015 announced an interim file, the Factor A Additional file, “factorAAdd_YYYYMM.zip” to address incomplete reporting on Multiple Issuer Pools.  This file will be discontinued as of the December reporting period, with the last file posted on the 4th Business Day of January, 2017.  The Factor A Additional file has been published until such time as Ginnie Mae could increase the completeness of the Factor A file, “factorA2_YYYYMM.zip”.  This goal has been met, and therefore the Factor A Additional file will be discontinued, after the last posting on January 6th, 2017.

For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov. ​

The Ginnie Mae Factor A GI and GII files are Factor files with preliminary data and are subject to final data corrections, based on reporting by Ginnie Mae Issuers. The Factor A files values are not final for the month and at the time they are released, Ginnie Mae’s window for data corrections is still open. This month’s Factor A GII file (factorA2_201608.zip) has incomplete records for some Multi Issuer Pools.

Based on the final Security RPB reporting from Issuers, Ginnie Mae will publish complete and updated final Factor Files (“Factor B File”) of Ginnie Mae I and Ginnie Mae II pools on the 6th Business Day of the month. The Ginnie Mae Factor B GI and Factor B GII files will be posted on the Disclosure Data Download page on the scheduled 6th Business Day, 8:00 PM .

For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov.

Ginnie Mae’s REMIC Trust number, 2016-109, contains a total of 43 Trust Asset Groups (or Subgroups) for its “Ginnie Mae I” Trust Asset Type. The valid Subgroups within Security Group 10 range from 10A through 10QQ. These subgroups are for the description of the “IO” and therefore are informational and do not have CUSIPs.

Note that because of the large number of subgroups, the subgroup identifiers require 4 positions: e.g. 10AA, 10BB, etc. Subgroups customarily have been 3 positions but for this REMIC deal subgroups have been expanded to 4 positions. Users to should examine their systems to ensure processing of 4 position subgroups, as applicable.

For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov.
9/1/2016
Beginning on September 7th (the 4th Business day of the month) at 7:30 PM, Ginnie Mae will begin publishing a new HMBS Supplemental file (named “HSuppl_YYYYMM.txt”) on the Disclosure Data Download page. The purpose of this file is to provide data for current-period values for the Security Interest Rate for active, HMBS Fixed Rate “RF” Pool Type pools. The file will be provided in the Other section on the Disclosure Data Download page. The HMBS Supplemental file layout and sample file are attached for reference.

Background: Field 9, the “Pool Interest Rate”, on the Factor II files (factorA2_YYYYMM.zip and factorB2_YYYYMM.zip) currently provides the original interest rate and not the current-period interest rate for HMBS “RF” Pool Types.

A future enhancement to the G2 Factor files will correct the “Pool Interest Rate” (field 9) for HMBS “RF” Pool Types; until then, the “HSuppl_YYYYMM.txt” file will provide the interest rate as of the Report Period. Note that there is no change to the Factor files related to this bulletin and that this bulletin only relates to HMBS “RF” Pool Types.

For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov.

Regarding June Report Period 2016 ARM Pool Prospective Interest Rates (Factor II files only): ​​Ginnie Mae’s June Report Period 2016 Factor B II file (published on the Disclosure Data Download page on July 11) did not contain the Prospective Interest Rates for ARM pools adjusting in July 2016. The June Factor B II file will not be replaced. For users that require the new rates for ARM Pools adjusting effective July 1, please use the Factor A II file published on the 4th Business Day of August (published August 4).

Investors are able to obtain the missing June Prospective Interest Rates (field 16 of the Factor II file) from the July Report Period Factor A II file, Pool Interest Rate (field 9 of the Factor II file). The July Factor A II file was posted August 4th, with the correct adjustment information and correct rates to be effective for July 1 with payment adjustment 8/20/2016. For questions related to this bulletin, please send an email to investorinquiries@hud.gov.
