Your monthly PMI payment is the monthly cost of Principal Mortgage Insurance (PMI). For loans secured with less than 20% down, PMI is estimated at 0.5% of your loan balance each year. Monthly PMI is calculated by multiplying your starting loan balance by this percent and dividing by 12. When the equity in your home exceeds the percentage required for PMI, your PMI payment drops to zero.

Normally PMI is required if you have less than 20% equity in your home, however for the refinance of loan guaranteed by Freddie Mac or Fannie Mae you may not be required to pay PMI if your current mortgage doesn't require it. Check with your lenders for details. Check the box "do NOT include PMI" if this applies to your refinance.
