As announced in Disclosure Bulletin 2020-032, Ginnie Mae is providing full size production test files for testing purposes. There will be two monthly files provided on Tuesday, October 13th, 2020 on the Disclosure New Release Test File Download page: platmonPPS_202009.zip and platmonPS_202009.zip.
Additionally, Ginnie Mae is providing a revision to the Platinum 2.0 layout. The revision entails:
- Platinum Pool/Security File – A definition adjustment to field 15: “Average Original Loan Size (AOLS) – Weighted”
- Platinum Pool Supplemental File - A renumbering of the Record Types in the file. This change allows for alignment of the Record Types in the Platinum Pool Supplemental File with the Record Types in the MBS Single Family Pool Supplemental File (so the “Loan Purpose” Record Type would be “06” in both files). There are now “Reserved” Record Types in the Platinum Pool Supplemental File (see layout, page 5).
See the Layout Version History on page 2 of the attached for details.
Target Implementation Date: January 2021 is the target implementation date for Platinum Pool Disclosure, version 2.0.
