Most people are already aware that one of the perks of using a VA loan is the zero down payment for homes that are under the loan limits provided for your specific county.  However, another perk is becoming exempt from paying the Funding Fee if you have a service-connected disability rating. The funding fee is 2.15% on the loan amount.  For example if a veteran is taking out a $300,000 mortgage the funding fee would come out to $6,400. The money received for a disability rating can also be counted towards a veteran’s income.  The extra money provided each month can mean the difference between being approved for a mortgage loan.
