Clarification of MBS Pool Delivery Limits
Fannie Mae has clarified its requirements regarding MBS de minimus delivery limitations for certain product characteristics as they relate to Fannie Majors multiple lender pools.

When lenders deliver mortgage loans into a Majors pool, the lender receives a share of the pool in proportion to the dollar amount of the mortgages delivered.

Note: In order to provide more information on our MBS, Fannie Mae publishes the cumulative outstanding security balance of each open Fannie Majors pool from its issue date through the current business day. The cumulative outstanding security balance will be updated several times throughout the business day.
