yield differential adjustment

An amount paid to the servicer of a portfolio first mortgage loan when the initial interest rate of a mortgage loan exceeds Fannie Mae’s required yield for the commitment under which the mortgage loan was purchased. For ARM loans, a yield differential adjustment occurs if there is excess “margin” rather than yield.
