Slight Change to our Temporary COVID-19 Underwriting Guidelines October 1, 2020

FHLBank Topeka’s board of directors recently approved an adjustment to our temporary COVID-19 underwriting guidelines within the Member Products and Services Guide. FHA-insured and VA-guaranteed mortgages are now also eligible for forbearance and modifications under the conditions listed below.


  • For FHA-insured and VA-guaranteed Mortgages within the One-To-Four Family Residential Real Property category, forbearance plans and modifications must comply with applicable laws and regulations, including Section 4022 of the Coronavirus Aid, Relief and Economic Security Act.
