Virginia Credit Union has selected Secure Settlements Inc. (SSI) to handle independent risk evaluation, rating, monitoring and reporting of settlement agents who wish to close VACU members’ mortgage loans. The credit union is now utilizing the SSI Closing Guard tool to evaluate settlement agents who close mortgage loans with VACU. A team led by Jeff Coward, Virginia Credit Union vice president of mortgage lending, selected SSI and began using the new tool in May 2015.
