“Blend has always been committed to partnering with the financial services industry to streamline processes and expand its ability to serve more customers. With the boom in the economy of odd jobs and non-traditional work, income verification can be a barrier for many consumers to access financial services despite a strong loan repayment capacity, ”said Nima Ghamsari, co-founder and director of Blend. “With Blend Income Verification, banking teams can confidently verify a consumer’s income in real time without the need to enter data or download documents. It really is the easiest button to verify a consumer’s income.
Traditional methods of income verification require consumers to submit various forms of documents, including pay stubs, W2 forms, and income tax returns, in order to determine a consumer’s ability to repay a loan. The data in these documents must then be manually extracted and reviewed, which can lengthen approvals and cause delays. With the new income verification product, Blend customers will be able to dramatically reduce processing and underwriting work by pre-populating loan applications with verified payroll, tax and asset data directly from vendors. data services.
Blend Income Verification is an authorized reporting provider for Fannie Mae’s Desktop Underwriter® (DU®) validation service and Freddie Mac’s Asset and Income Modeler (AIM), making it easy for financial services companies to take advantage of these programs for the mortgages they manage through Blend. Additionally, the product will be fully integrated with Blend’s cloud-based banking platform, allowing customers to quickly activate and configure new revenue verification capabilities for all products.
Blend Income Verification is currently available for Blend’s mortgage product and will soon expand to all of the company’s consumer banking offerings.
