Desktop Underwriter Job Aids

Desktop Underwriter® (DU®) Job Aids are a fully-searchable set of task-based instructions that take you step-by-step through the most commonly used functions of the DU application.

Note: This suite of Job Aids applies to the new DU user interface (UI) and new Uniform Residential Loan application (URLA). 

For ease of reference, we will generally use the term “DU” to refer to Desktop Originator® and Desktop Underwriter® (DO®/DU®).

Here are some tips for using the job aids:

  • Sets of job aids are grouped by topic. Click a topic to reveal its contents.

  • Enter a topic into the search field to search for a particular word or phrase throughout the entire set of job aids. Job aids in which your search term is found are displayed. When you click on a topic resulting from a search, your search term is highlighted within the job aid itself.

  • Click the print icon to print the currently selected topic.

  • Click the minimize icon to close the navigation panel, and click the expand icon to redisplay the navigation panel.

While every effort has been made to ensure the reliability of the information in these job aids, Fannie Mae's Selling and Servicing Guides are the official statements of Fannie Mae's policies and procedures and should be adhered to in the event of discrepancies between the information in these job aids and the guides.
