This Notice also lists the following information: Title of Proposal: Single Family Premium Collection Subsystem— Upfront (SFPCS–U). OMB Control Number, if applicable: 2502–0423. The Single Family Premium Collection Subsystem—Upfront (SFPCS–U) allows the lenders to remit the Upfront Mortgage Insurance Premiums using funds obtained from the mortgagor during the closing of the mortgage transaction at settlement. The SFPCS–U strengthens HUD’s ability to manage and process upfront single-family mortgage insurance premium collections and corrections. It also improves data integrity for the Single Family Mortgage Insurance Program. Therefore, the FHA approved lenders transmit UPMIP payment case detail directly to HUD and this information is remitted by HUD to the Department of the Treasury’s Pay.gov Automated Clearing House (ACH) applications. The case-level payment information sent to HUD is updated on the Single Family Premium Collection Subsystem—Upfront (SFPCS). The authority for this collection of information is specified in 24 CFR 203.280 and 24 CFR 203.281. The collection of information is also used in calculating refunds due to former FHA mortgagors when they apply for homeowner refunds of the unearned portion of the mortgage insurance premium, 24 CFR 203.283, as appropriate. Without this information the premium collection/monitoring process would be severely impeded, and program data would be unreliable. In general, the lenders use the ACH applications to remit the upfront premium through SFPCS–U to obtain mortgage insurance for the homeowner. Agency form numbers, if applicable: Estimation of the total numbers of hours needed to prepare the information collection including number of respondents, frequency of response, and hours of response: Hourly rate is based on an estimate of the annual salary of lender clerical staff at $33,280. The number of annual burden hours is 7,229. The number of respondents is 4,016, the number of responses is 48,192, the frequency of response is monthly, and the estimated burden time response is approximated 15 minutes.
