Should the NMLS branch or the company ID be listed in the "company ID" field in FHA forms/systems?

Please provide your home office/company (MU1) ID for all instances in which a company NMLS ID is requested.

FHA is not collecting the NMLS ID of branch offices yet. The NMLS ID field was added to the branch office registration screen in the FHA Connection, but the required computer programming to verify the NMLS ID of the branch office that is entered has not been completed. Therefore, the field must be left blank at this time. Once FHA begins collecting the NMLS ID of branch offices, lenders will be prompted to enter it when updates are made to branch office information.
