In keeping with the published MBS Loan Level Monthly files (as announced in the December 11th bulletin), Ginnie Mae will include the following borrower privacy protections in MBS Loan Level New Issuance files beginning in January 2014:
• Truncating the OPB and UPB at Issuance fields to the thousandths place (e.g. a value of 123456.78 will be disclosed as 123000.00)
• Masking the UPB field: data is blank for all loans
• Masking the MSA field: data is blank for all loans
The first MBS Loan Level New Issuance file with these protections will be published on Friday, January 3rd.
