Moving MI Forward and Faster in 12 Months*


National MI was the first to announce to lenders a more innovative, cutting edge solution.

National MI SafeGuard® offers rescission relief after just 12 months – 2 years sooner than the industry standard of 36 months.

Rescission Relief After 12 Months:

  • Significantly reduce lender risk with our straightforward Master Policy so lenders can feel more confident
  • If approved, after 12 months, unless National MI is presented with credible evidence of first-party fraud, we will not actively investigate the loan.

An Innovative Approach to Coverage Protection:

  • Certifies that each loan covered by National MI is insured with clear underwriting protection, regardless of origination channel, investor sale or insured date.
    • We fully and equally support both Non-Delegated and Delegated channels
    • No extra charge for this coverage
    • No re-verifications are needed
  • Offers significant protection to lenders and confidence in the reliability of our coverage from day one.
  • Ensures that National MI will pay a claim when a borrower makes 12 consecutive, timely mortgage payments from their own funds.2
  • Guarantees that every valid claim will be paid on a timely basis – in weeks, not months.

Certainty of Coverage

National MI has developed a master policy that reduces lender risk by requiring only 12 timely, consecutive mortgage payments instead of the industry-standard 36 payments before a loan is safe from rescission or denial of coverage2.  And, after 12 months, National MI will not actively investigate a loan unless fraud is presented to us.3
