When qualifying for a VA loan, a Veteran’s Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is a critical document, and in today’s video I will break down important details found within the COE, when it should be ordered, and how lenders can help a Veteran with the process.

What is a VA Certificate of Eligibility (“COE”)?
Per the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs (“VA”):
“After establishing that you are eligible, you will need a Certificate of Eligibility (COE). The COE verifies to the lender that you are eligible for a VA-backed loan.”

Depending on if your category is that of a Veteran, Active Duty Servicemember, National Guard, or Reserve Member, the evidence needed to obtain your COE can vary and I have listed a link below which you can reference for further details.

How does a Veteran apply for a Certificate of Eligibility?

A Veteran may either apply online through the eBenefits portal OR they can apply through their lender, provided their lender has access to the Web LGY system.

While this may sound complicated, we handle this processing on a regular basis and provided there is enough data within the VA’s records, we may even be able to obtain a Veteran’s COE in a matter of seconds!

However, if there is insufficient data, we can still submit for manual processing but would need the evidence discussed above in order to submit with the request.

Also, in our experience, we see many cases where the lender may not order the COE until later in the process

What important information can be found on a COE?
In addition to determining that a borrower is eligible for a VA home loan, the COE can also provide critical information such as:
• If they are exempt from the VA funding fee;
• The amount of any VA disability income received;
• If this is this a first time or a subsequent use which can impact the funding fee amount
