Mortgage Underwriter Jobs

Mortgage Underwriter Overview


A mortgage underwriter is the person who processes and verifies a mortgage application. Mortgage underwriters are responsible for checking the applicant’s loan history, credit history, credit score, outstanding debt, income, and other factors that contribute to a loan approval or denial decision. The position is usually worked into after several years of experience working under a more experienced underwriter. However, past experience as a loan officer or general loan underwriter can speed up the process.

Mortgage Underwriter Education Requirements


Mortgage underwriters must have, at minimum, a high school diploma. Many obtain degrees or certifications from technical colleges. On-the-job training is provided upon hiring. Mortgage underwriters are required to possess strong mathematic and analytical skills, as well as the ability to communicate clearly with other agencies when verifying the applicant’s information.

Mortgage Underwriter Job Market


The total number of jobs for mortgage underwriters is expected to rise by 9 percent between 2012 and 2022, which will result in an estimated 3,010 new jobs per year. Mortgage underwriters are often employed by mortgage companies. A very few will find work on a freelance basis, and they will work when a company is flush with loans and needs the additional processing power.

Mortgage Underwriter Salary


Underwriters are well paid for their work with an average salary of around $53,000. Beginning underwriters might make as little as $31,000 until they work their way up. Experienced underwriters can make as much as $105,000 or more per year. The size of the employing company makes a large difference as does the experience of the underwriter. Some companies offer bonuses on the size of the approved loans. Freelance underwriters typically charge a flat rate, which can result in large sums being paid to them at a time. However, this can result in unsteady income in between projects.
