How VA Loans Work for Refinancing
VA refinance loans (backed by the U.S. Department of Veteran Affairs) are designed for current and veteran military personnel looking to refinance their mortgage. Whether your current home loan is VA or another loan type, eligible service members can use a VA loan to take advantage of exclusive benefits and savings.
