How do I report MPF on my call report?

The MPF Program and FHLB Dallas do not provide guidance regarding completion of your Call Report; we are not call report experts. However, Wilary Win. LLC has done extensive research on the MPF Program and can provide you with guidance on how to report including the MPF SSFA Calculator. You may also reach out to your regulator. Wilary Winn is in St. Paul, Minnesota.

What is this transaction on my DDA account?

When delivery commitment extension fees, pair off fees and MPF fundings are incurred by the PFI, the individual completing the process will receive an email confirmation from MPF. It is suggested that these emails be forwarded to the PFI’s accounting department, so they are aware of the transactions going through the general DDA account. Other fees that may need to be communicated to the accounting department would include custody fees and late investor reporting fees.

Are there reports that allow me to see MPF activity?

Reports for managing MPF activity are available within the eMPF website. Forms required for managing MPF authority updates are available on the microsite under the “Resources” tab.

What is credit enhancement (CE) and how is it paid?

MPF is a unique program where the member shares in a small amount of the risk on the mortgage loans sold into the MPF Traditional program. MPF pays the member a monthly fee (net credit enhancement fee A.K.A. CE Fee) for sharing in the loan risk for as long as the loan is on FHLBDM books. The MPF Microsite has an on-demand webinar under the Resource tab that provides an in-depth overview of how the risk sharing works.
