RICHMOND, Va., March 7, 2013

RICHMOND, Va., March 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Genworth U.S. Mortgage Insurance
(USMI), a unit of Genworth Financial, Inc. (NYSE: GNW), today announced an
enhanced, easy to use mortgage insurance rates and comparisons tool that can
increase loan officer and processor productivity and let them quickly compare
Genworth USMI rates or obtain a rate quote, so lenders can process loans
faster. The new simplified rates and comparisons tool offers more features and
functionality than versions currently available from other private mortgage
insurance providers.

"The improved rates and comparisons tool offers customers the ease of use and
robust features they want, and demonstrates Genworth USMI's commitment to be
their preferred business partner," said Erika Stinson, digital channel product
manager.

With the new tool, loan processors only need to complete five required fields
to receive Genworth USMI mortgage insurance premium rates: loan amount; state;
credit score; loan-to-value ratio; and loan interest rate. Lenders can view
the new tool at:
http://mortgageinsurance.genworth.com/RatesAndGuidelines/RateFinder.aspx.

Other enhancements include:

  oNew, simplified look and feel
  oAuto-save results and revisit any time in the future
  oHARP certificate search
  oEmail results findings with two clicks
  oMI premium tax information
  oOrder MI from the tool, reducing data entry
  oDedicated underwriting help line

Users are able to edit loan parameters from within the tool, saving time.
Users also can create as many loan scenarios as needed to evaluate how
adjusting certain factors will affect the borrower's payment, and email
results without a login, all from within the tool.

The tool offers users an easy way to compare the cost of Genworth MI against
insurance coverage from the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), which is
especially useful in light of recent FHA premium increases that now make
Genworth mortgage insurance cheaper than comparable FHA insurance.

The enhanced rates and comparisons tool is another component of Genworth
USMI's Simplify MI(SM) effort dedicated to saving lenders time and boosting
their business. Customers can contact their Genworth USMI account
representative to learn more about the tool, or they can direct questions to
Genworth USMI's ActionCenter® at 800-444-5664, or Action.Center@genworth.com.
