ACTION: Notice. mstockstill on DSK4VPTVN1PROD with NOTICES AGENCY: SUMMARY: On June 18, 2014, the Federal Housing Administration (FHA) issued Mortgagee Letter 2014–11, announcing a limit on the insurability of fixed interest rate mortgages under the HECM program to mortgages with the Single Disbursement Lump Sum payment option. FHA issued this Mortgagee Letter pursuant to the authority granted to it in subsections 202(a) and 255(c) of the National Housing Act and in the Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act of 2013 to make this change to the HECM program. The limitation on the eligibility for insurance of fixed interest rate mortgages is necessary in order to ensure the financial viability of the HECM program and the Mutual Mortgage Insurance Fund (Fund). These changes took effect for case numbers assigned on or after June 25, 2014. This notice solicits comment for a period of 30 days on the new requirements announced in Mortgagee Letter 2014–11.

Hearing or speech impaired individuals may access this number via TTY by calling the Federal Relay Service during business hours at 1–800–877–8337 (this is a toll-free number). SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: On April 1, 2014, Ginnie Mae issued an All Participants Memorandum (APM) announcing that fixed interest rate HECM loans with future draws will be ineligible for securitization through Ginnie Mae programs on or after June 1, 2014. The only fixed interest rate HECM product that will be eligible for securitization through Ginnie Mae programs will be mortgages with the Single Disbursement Lump Sum payment option selected at closing, which was the option that was introduced with the September 30, PO 00000 Frm 00045 Fmt 4703 Sfmt 4703 2013, program changes. As a result of this change, risk to FHA and the Fund would be increased if FHA were to allow for these other fixed rate products to continue to be eligible for insurance. The Secretary has a responsibility to ensure that the Fund remains financially sound under subsection 202(a)(3) of the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1708) and the authority to insure HECMs upon such terms and conditions as he may prescribe to the extent that he determines such mortgages have potential for acceptance in the mortgage market under subsection 255(c)(3) of the National Housing Act (12 U.S.C. 1715z–20). Therefore, to address the increased risk that would be borne by FHA and the Fund as a result of Ginnie Mae’s APM, HUD issued Mortgagee Letter 2014–11,1 which requires all fixed interest rate HECMs to have the Single Disbursement Lump Sum payment option and prevents future draws to the mortgagor after closing. The Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act of 2013 (Pub. L. 113– 29), which amended section 255 of the National Housing Act by adding a new subsection (h)(3), gives FHA the authority to establish, by notice or mortgagee letter, any additional or alternative requirements that the Secretary, in the Secretary’s discretion, determines are necessary to improve the fiscal safety and soundness of the HECM program authorized by section 255 of the National Housing Act. Comments on the changes announced in Mortgagee Letter 2014–11 will be accepted for a period of 30 days.2 Dated: July 1, 2014. Carol J.
