Payment forbearance can be a useful tool to assist a borrower through a temporary hardship. Arch MI’s approval is not required for a forbearance agreement, provided no other terms of the loan will be modified and no amount will be capitalized into the loan balance. If you wish to forbear payments in conjunction with modification of the loan terms, please contact Arch MI’s Loss Mitigation team. All GSE loans are delegated and no additional approval is required when GSE guidelines are followed. Forbearances due to COVID-19 are expected to be reported to Arch MI in your regular monthly reporting, whether by MILAR or spreadsheet/email, to To avoid cancellation of a certificate that you want to keep in force during the forbearance, please continue to remit the mortgage premium during the forbearance period.

Arch MI Supports Customers Affected by Hurricane Laura and the California Wildfires

Following the significant damage caused by Hurricane Laura and the wildfires in California, Arch MI affirms our support for all forbearance and loss mitigation programs initiated by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Arch MI has given servicers full delegation on Arch MI-insured GSE loans to proceed with workouts that meet the guidelines set forth by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The servicer’s only obligation is to report the workout once it is complete; permission is not required up front.

Additionally, Arch MI supports moratoriums issued by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac and directives issued by the affected states’ insurance offices.

Arch MI is fully compliant with Louisiana’s Emergency Rule 45, which provides for the suspension of certain statutes, including those regarding cancellations, terminations, non-renewals and non-reinstatements, premium payment, claim filings and related provisions relative to all kinds of insurance and all types of insurers doing business in Louisiana who have insureds residing in Louisiana in the 16 parishes affected by Hurricane Laura and its aftermath, and other related matters.

Arch MI recognizes these are very difficult times for homeowners coping with these catastrophic events. We stand together with the servicing community in the implementation of streamlined and effective loss mitigation programs.
