Private Mortgage Insurance (PMI)

Private Mortgage Insurance is an insurance policy that protects your credit union from loss due to a member defaulting on the loan. No matter which mortgage insurance product you choose the result is the same—adding mortgage insurance can make a difference in how quickly a mortgage loan is approved, and it can help your members qualify with a minimal down payment. What's more, because mortgage insurance is temporary insurance, a member can cancel it after building sufficient equity in the home.
