MGIC Go! streamlined MI, expanded to more DU Approve and LP Accept loans

MGIC’s Go! program is the fastest, simplest way to get MI with DU® or LP®.

Now in addition to DU Approve/Eligible and LP Accept/Eligible loans, you can also streamline the MI process for Approve or Accept loans that receive an Ineligible AUS delivery response due to LTV or loan instrument.

With only a few Go! Overlays, (see table below) you can otherwise process and underwrite eligible loans according to AUS Findings/Feedback requirements.

Follow your findings

Follow AUS Findings/Feedback requirements for:

  • Documentation
  • Tradelines, credit history
  • Borrower contribution, including gift funds
  • Reserves
  • Other criteria

Go! Overlays

Apply the following MGIC Go! overlays1; otherwise, refer to the respective Agency seller guide for requirements not provided in the Findings/Feedback.
