Beginning June 3, 2019, Freddie Mac will issue non-TBA-eligible Freddie Mac 55-day MBS, replacing our current 45-day non-TBA-eligible Gold PC. Freddie Mac non-TBA-eligible Gold Fixed-Rate PCs will be eligible for exchange into Freddie Mac MBS beginning May 7 or investors can purchase newly issued Freddie Mac MBS beginning June 3.

Product Overview

Freddie Mac MBS are pass-through securities, each representing an undivided interest in a pool of residential mortgages. Freddie Mac offers traditional 30-year fixed-rate Freddie Mac MBS in addition to 20-year and 15-year securities. Freddie Mac MBS are backed by fully amortizing mortgages and pay on a 55-day delay schedule. Freddie Mac guarantees the timely payment of interest and scheduled principal on all Freddie Mac MBS. Freddie Mac MBS feature a payment delay of only 55 days from the time interest begins to accrue and the time the investor receives a payment.

Optional Exchange

Freddie Mac MBS are 55-day payment delay non-TBA-eligible securities; if a 45-day payment delay non-TBA-eligible Gold PC security is exchanged for the corresponding Freddie Mac MBS, a one-time 10-day float compensation payment will also be paid to the investor.
