By vintage, for loans made in 2004 or earlier (2% of portfolio), 2.64% are seriously delinquent (up from 2.48% in March). For loans made in 2005 through 2008 (3% of portfolio), 4.41% are seriously delinquent (up from 4.11%), For recent loans, originated in 2009 through 2018 (95% of portfolio), only 0.38% are seriously delinquent (up from 0.35%). So Fannie is still working through a few poor performing loans from the bubble years.

With COVID-19, this rate will increase significantly in a few months (it takes time since these are mortgages three months or more past due).

Note: Freddie Mac reported earlier.
