Loan Workout Options May Be Available

If you find yourself unable to make your MMS monthly mortgage payments, contact us right away. The sooner you contact us, the more options you may have to working out a solution. Click below for more information.

The right option for you depends on your individual circumstances. If you provide all required information and documentation about your situation, we can determine if you qualify for temporary or long-term relief, including solutions that may allow you to stay in your home (refinance with your credit union, repayment, forbearance, loan modification) or leave your home while avoiding foreclosure (short sale or deed-in-lieu of foreclosure).

Note: You are still responsible for making your payments while your Workout Loan request is being reviewed. Collection efforts, late fees, and late payment reporting to credit bureau(s) may occur if your loan payment(s) are past due.

The following Workout Loan options may be available to members who are unable to afford their monthly mortgage payment and who wish to avoid foreclosure:

  • Forbearance -- If you are experiencing a temporary hardship, a short term reduction or suspension of your mortgage payment may be an option.
  • Loan Modification -- A change in the repayment terms of your loan.
  • Refinance -- Obtain a new loan with your credit union, if you qualify.
  • Repayment plan -- Repay the amount you are behind over several months.

It is important to understand what could happen if your home goes in foreclosure:

  • The money you have invested in your home will be lost
  • Negative consequences to your credit score
  • Negative impact on you ability to obtain a mortgage in the future
  • You could be held liable for any losses the lender incurs
