The VA updated VA Form 26-6393 (Loan Analysis) and VA Form 26-8937 (Verification of VA benefits) by explicitly requiring that certain signatures and sections of these documents must be completed in ink. This requirement was made clear by the addition of the phrases “(Sign in ink)” and “(Complete in ink)” to the documents.
Consequently, we will be updating the configuration of our VA Loan Analysis (Cx5533) and Verification of Benefit-Related Indebtedness (Cx3952) to set them to be ink-signed rather than eSigned. We will also be adding the “(Sign in ink)” and “(Complete in ink)” phrases to our documents, to match the updated model forms.
These changes will be effective on August 16, 2016. If you have any questions, please contact Client Support at 1.800.497.3584.
Update: The VA rescinded their instructions to have these documents only signed in ink. See our most recent announcement here. The other changes will be implemented as scheduled.
