VA loan fees. Is that a fee I see?

Good eye, soldier. In most cases, all veterans using the VA Home Loan Guaranty benefit must pay a funding fee, which reduces the loan’s cost to taxpayers since a VA loan requires no down payment and has no monthly mortgage insurance. If you’re disabled and are receiving compensation for a service-connected disability, or if you’re eligible for disability compensation, but are receiving retirement or active duty pay instead, you don’t have to pay the funding fee.
