If you are struggling to make your mortgage payment on your FHA-insured mortgage because of COVID-19, help is available. Contact your mortgage servicer and request a COVID-19 forbearance.
When working with your servicer:
- State that you are having a financial hardship due to COVID-19. You will not be required to provide documentation of this hardship;
- Request a COVID-19 Forbearance for your mortgage payments;
- Ask your servicer to confirm the details of your agreement in writing.
