The information concerning new delinquency notices and cures is compiled from reports received from loan servicers. The level of new notice and cure activity reported in a particular month can be influenced by, among other things, the date on which a servicer generates its report, the accuracy of the data provided by servicers, the number of business days in a month, transfers of servicing between loan servicers, and whether all servicers have provided the reports in a given month. Notices of delinquency are typically reported to us when loans are two payments past due (for example, for February we report as a new delinquency any delinquent loan that missed its January 1st (or earlier) payment that was not previously reported to us). We expect the number of delinquencies will continue to be influenced by various factors related to the COVID-19 pandemic, including its length and severity, the length of time that measures intended to reduce its transmission remain in place, the resulting level of unemployment, the impact of various government initiatives to mitigate the resulting economic harm and efforts to reduce its transmission.
