Struggling To Make Rent Or Mortgage Payments
Due to Covid-19? You Have Options.
(BPT) - If you’re having trouble making
your rent or mortgage payment due to the
economic upheaval caused by the COVID-19
pandemic, you’re not alone. Millions of Americans
have lost their jobs, been furloughed,
had their hours reduced or have had to take
time off work due to illness or to care for a
family member - with or without pay.
The good news? There’s help for both renters
and homeowners. Unfortunately, many don’t
know about the assistance available to them.
“As we confront these unsettling times, it is
important to help keep people in their homes,”

if your mortgage is backed by a government

fees during forbearance as long as you stick
to the plan’s agreed terms.
To request forbearance or other mortgage
assistance, contact your mortgage servicer
- the company that manages your monthly
While you will eventually have to make
up the payments you missed during your forbearance
plan, you are never required to pay
it back all at once unless you are able to do
so. Other options include a repayment plan,
which allows you to gradually catch up on
the missed amount over a period of time, or
payment deferral, which keeps your monthly
payments the same by moving the missed
amount to the end of the loan term with no
additional interest. If you have experienced
a permanent impact to your ability to make
your current mortgage payment, you may
qualify for a loan modification, which could
reduce your monthly payment by extending
