The Secure and Fair Enforcement for Mortgage Licensing Act (S.A.F.E. Act) requires Associates of WSFS Bank who act as residential Mortgage Loan Originators (MLOs) to federally register with the Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System and Registry. MLOs must obtain a unique identifier and maintain registration. Click here to see a complete list of WSFS MLOs and their Nationwide Mortgage Licensing System (NMLS) ID#.
