Published Date: 1/25/2023 11:30 AM

Ginnie Mae is replacing the GNMA HMBS Pool Disclosure, Version 4.4 (affecting files: hdaily.txt, hnissues_YYYYMM.txt, and hmonthly_YYYYMM.txt) with HMBS Pool Level Disclosure Version 5.0.

This bulletin provides the detailed file layout (attached) and Field descriptions for the individual record types and disclosure data elements.

The new file layout is in a pipe (|) delimited format and defines two separate physical files: 1. Pool/Security File (3 record types) 2. Supplemental File (13 record types including stratification record types)

Test File(s)

Ginnie Mae will provide test files for the HMBS Pool Level Disclosures in the 2nd quarter of 2023. The file names for the Daily New Issuance, Monthly New Issuance, and Monthly files will be made available at that time. The test files will be announced in a separate bulletin and will be made available on the Disclosure New Release Test File Download page.

Implementation Date for New Stratified Record Files and Availability of Existing Legacy Files

Ginnie Mae plans to implement HMBS Pool Level Disclosure V5.0 in the third quarter of 2023. Ginnie Mae intends to continue the production of the legacy, HMBS Pool Disclosure, Version 4.4 files for a period of 3 months, while also producing the new stratification record files. The new files will be added to the Disclosure Data Download Files page​ and the legacy files will be moved to the Legacy Disclosure Files page. After the 3 month “overlap” period, the legacy file production will stop, and only the new files will be produced.
