How long do I have to submit my case binder for endorsement?

For non-Lender Insurance (LI) lenders, the case binder must be received by the jurisdictional Homeownership Center (HOC) no later than 60 days after the disbursement date.
 
LI lenders must endorse the mortgage using FHA Connection (FHAC) no later than 60 days after the disbursement date.
