What action should be taken if FHA transfers mortgage insurance benefits to the servicer, rather than to Fannie Mae?

If the servicer erroneously indicates its name on a claim form for the mortgage loan, FHA will transfer the funds directly to the servicer, rather than to Fannie Mae. When this occurs, the servicer must remit the funds to Fannie Mae immediately. Fannie Mae may impose a daily compensatory fee for delayed remittances of FHA claim settlements that are the result of the servicer's erroneous preparation of the claim form. For additional information see A1-4.2-02, Compensatory Fees for Delays in the Liquidation Process .
