What is a VA Loan?
The VA loan is a benefit earned by the veteran, for serving in the United States military. This type of mortgage loan is issued by approved lenders, and guaranteed by the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs. The word GUARANTEED does not actually guaranty the veteran will qualify for a VA home loan. VA does not actually lend the money to you directly. They offer a guaranty to a lender that if you should default on the loan, they will pay the lender a percentage of the loan balance. With the protection guarantee by the VA, Texas Premier Mortgage can offer you favorable financing terms and 0% down on your home loan not offered to regular citizens! This perk allows you some great financing options.
Who Qualifies for a VA Loan?
Active members, Veterans, National Guard members, Reservists, and spouses of deceased military members that died while on active duty or as a result of a service connected disability may be eligible for VA loan approval. There are a few other stipulations, call Texas Premier Mortgage and speak with one of our mortgage experts to discuss your options! We’ll help you determine if your eligible and guide you through the process.

Your loan expert can help you attain your certificate of eligibility on your behalf. We’ll help you determine any other information you need.
Veterans with active duty service, that was not dishonorable, during World War II and later periods, are eligible for VA loan benefits. World War II (September 16, 1940 to July 25, 1947), Korean conflict (June 27, 1950 to January 31, 1955), and Vietnam era (August 5, 1964 to May 7, 1975) veterans must have at least 90 days of service.
Veterans with service only during peacetime periods and active duty military personnel must have had more than 180 days of active service.

Q: Are the children of a living or deceased veteran eligible for the home loan benefit?
No, the children of an eligible veteran are not eligible for the home loan benefit.
Q: How can I obtain proof of military service?
Standard Form 180, Request Pertaining to Military Records, is used to apply for proof of military service regardless of whether you served on regular active duty or in the selected reserves. This request form is NOT processed by VA.
Rather, Standard Form 180 is completed and mailed to the appropriate custodian of military service records. Instructions are provided on the reverse of the form to assist in determining the correct forwarding address.
Q: Is the surviving spouse of a deceased veteran eligible for the home loan benefit?
The unmarried surviving spouse of a veteran who died on active duty or as the result of a service-connected disability is eligible for the home loan benefit.
