What is the 36000 VA entitlement?

As an eligible veteran, basic entitlement guarantees the VA will pay your lender the lesser of up to $36,000 or 25% of your VA loan amount if you default. However, that doesn’t mean you can only borrow $36,000. Most lenders allow you to borrow four times that amount, up to $144,000, without requiring a down payment.

Why does my VA loan say 36000?

If you have full entitlement, your COE will say, “This veteran’s basic entitlement is $36,000.” It’s important to note that this is not a limit on how much you can borrow or how much the VA will guarantee. All this means is that on loans under $144,000, the VA will guarantee up to $36,000 – 25% of the loan amount.
