VA transactions –
Add these items to the purchase or refinance checklist if you are applying for a VA loan:
- Social Security card(s) – if available
- DD form 214 – discharge paperwork
- VA Certificate of Eligibility – can be requested by veteran at https://www.ebenefits.va.gov/ebenefits/about/feature?feature=cert-of-eligibility-home-loan
This list is intended to supplement one of the other basic lists when applying for VA financing. In addition to the items listed above, you must also gather the documents in one of the other appropriate lists (i.e. purchase, refinance) to be prepared for your application. These are the basic items needed, and may vary from bank to bank or depending on your situation. Having the items on this list and the other primary list ready to go prior to applying for your mortgage will help you be better prepared to take control of the process and enjoy a smooth transaction.
