What is the VA Funding Fee?  How Much is the VA Funding Fee?

The VA funding fee is a set fee applied to every purchase loan or refinance. The proceeds go directly to the VA and help cover losses on the few loans that go into default.  The VA funding fee  is currently 2.15% on no down payment loans for first-time users. The funding fee for second time users who do not make a down payment is 3.3%.  If a borrower puts down 5%, the funding fee drops to 1.5%, and if they put down 10% or more, it drops to 1.25%, for first-time users and multiple users.  Veterans with a service-connected disability rating that receives disability compensation NEVER HAVE ANY FUNDING FEE.  The VA funding fee can be added to the loan.
