Overview

The Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) Cash-Out Refinance Loan is for homeowners who want to trade equity for cash from their home. These loans can be used as strictly cash at closing, to payoff debt, making home improvements, and paying off liens. The Cash-Out Refinance Loan can also be used to refinance a non-VA loan into a VA loan. VA will guaranty loans up to 100 percent of the value of your home.

Administration

Cash-Out Refinance Loan is administered by Veterans Benefits Administration (VBA).

Program Requirements:

Persons who may qualify for VA-guaranteed loans include

  • Eligible Veterans / Servicemember
  • Current Reserve and National Guard members (after 6 years of creditable service)
  • Certain surviving spouses


To be eligible, the Veteran/Servicemember must have been discharged under conditions other than dishonorable and meet length of service requirements.

As a requirement for a VA home loan, the Veteran, the Veterans' spouse, or dependent child must certify occupancy for the property.
