About United Guaranty

For more than 50 years, United Guaranty has provided the best in mortgage insurance products and services to mortgage lenders and credit unions of all sizes.

Established in Greensboro, N.C., in 1963, United Guaranty now employs more than 900 professionals and support staff at its headquarters and in locations throughout the country.

Mortgage insurance, or simply "MI," helps people buy a house with only a modest down payment. This is because MI protects lenders against the increased risk of borrower default related to mortgages with high loan-to-value (LTV) ratios. With MI, a mortgage lender can lend a greater portion of the value of a house instead of only 80 percent.

Products and Services:

United Guaranty provides an array of products and services, including first-lien mortgage guaranty insurance in a range of premium payment plans. United Guaranty is the only MI provider to offer Performance Premium® risk-based MI pricing.

Homeowner Support:

United Guaranty also works with homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments to identify ways to keep their home. As a liaison between the borrower and the mortgage servicer, United Guaranty provides the added support some homeowners need to make their payments current and avoid foreclosure.
