Previously, VA issued Circular 26-11-12 announcing the reduction of funding fees effective on October 1, 2011. We have been notified that the President signed H.R. 2646: Veterans Health Care Facilities Improvement Act of 2011, which reverts the VA Funding Fees back to the higher, pre-October 1st percentages. The reduced VA Funding Fee Schedule in Circular 26-11-12 would apply for a very short period of time, theoretically for loans that closed during October 1st through October 4th. The VA is expected to provide guidance on the exact validity period for the VA Funding Fee schedule set forth in Circular 26-11-12, but it is likely that the guidance will come first via the VA Funding Fee payment process.
