These limits apply to all loans closed January 1, 2009 through December 31, 2009. Those military personnel whether active, veterans, disabled vets, or surviving spouses will benefit further by using the Military Movers Plus Program.

2010 county loan limits will be made available as soon as possible.

The maximum guaranty amount (available for loans over $144,000) is 25 percent of the 2009 VA Limit shown below. Therefore, a veteran with full entitlement available may borrow up to the 2009VA Limit shown below and VA will guarantee 25 percent of the loan amount.

If a veteran has previously used entitlement that has not been restored, the maximum guaranty amount available to that veteran must be reduced accordingly. Lenders should check their own investor requirements regarding guaranty amounts and down payments.
