If you have a VA loan and are considering a refinance to lower your interest rate an interest rate reduction refinance loan or a IRRRL may be right for you. It is a mortgage refinancing program offered but the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs (VA) to home owners with VA loans. It is a VA-to-VA loan process, designed to allow homeowners to refinance a fixed loan at a lower interest rate or to convert an adjustable rate mortgage into a fixed rate mortgage. An Interest Rate Reduction Refinance Loan must be a VA loan to VA refinance, and it will reuse the veteran privilege initially used. A new Certificate of Eligibility (COE) is not required. Veterans may take their Certificate of Eligibility to show the previous use of their privilege or their lender may use an e-mail confirmation from the Department of Veteran Affairs in lieu of a certificate of eligibility.
Additional Eligibility Requirements:
- Verify that you occupied the home.
- Used a VA loan when you bought the home, or by substituting eligibility for that of the seller, if the loan was assumed.
- No loan other than the existing VA loan may be paid from the proceeds of an IRRRL.
Loan limits can vary by county and are the amount a qualified Veteran with full privilege may be able to borrow without having to make a down payment but still will require a VA funding fee that will generally be paid at the time of closing with the option of financing. You will not require a funding fee if you are a veteran receiving VA compensation for a service-connected disability , a veteran who would be entitled to receive compensation for a service-connected disability if you did not receive retirement or active duty pay, or a surviving spouse of a Veteran who died in service or from a service-connected disability.

- No appraisal or credit underwriting package is required when applying
- May be done with “no money out of pocket”
