TALLAHASSEE, Fla.–Attorney General Pam Bondi’s office, working with Rust Consulting, Inc., has begun outbound calls to reach Florida borrowers who may be eligible for cash payments under the national mortgage settlement. Live operators will call those who lost their homes to foreclosure between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2011 and had their mortgages serviced by Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.
“We want every borrower who may be eligible for a cash payment under the national settlement to submit a claim. Currently, approximately forty-four percent of the people to whom claim forms have been mailed have submitted their claims,” stated Attorney General Pam Bondi.
Forms must be completed and returned by Jan. 18, 2013, in the envelope provided, or they can be filed online at NationalMortgageSettlement.com. Claims received after January 18th may be considered, but payment to those claimants is not guaranteed.
Payment checks are expected to be mailed in mid-2013. The amount of the payment will be the same for all claimants and depends on the number of eligible claims received. Payments will be a minimum of $840, but higher payments to each eligible consumer are expected.
This $25 billion settlement between the nation’s five largest mortgage servicers and the federal government and 49 states and the District of Columbia, earmarked approximately $1.5 billion in payments for 2 million borrowers nationwide. In Florida, approximately $170 million is available for cash payments to Florida borrowers. All available funds will be distributed to those who file claims; none of this money will be returned to the banks or used by the states for any other purpose.
For more information about eligibility and filing a claim:
Call toll-free: 1-866-430-8358 (hearing impaired: 1-866-494-8281). The line is staffed Monday through Friday from (7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Central).
Forgive me if you find me less than a little bit excited….Floridians that lost their homes will get a few dollars thrown their way….
TALLAHASSEE, Fla.—Attorney General Pam Bondi announced today that claim forms are going out to approximately 167,398 Florida borrowers who lost their home to foreclosure between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2011 and who may be eligible for payment under the $25 billion national mortgage foreclosure settlement.
Eligible borrowers had mortgages serviced by Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo, the nation’s five largest mortgage servicers that agreed to the settlement with the federal government and attorneys general for 49 states and the District of Columbia.
The settlement, which took effect in April, earmarked approximately $1.5 billion in payments for 2 million borrowers nationwide who lost their homes to foreclosure during that period and had their loan serviced by one of the settling servicers. The exact payment will depend upon the total number of borrowers who decide to participate.
Forms mailed to qualified borrowers, must be returned by January 18
Last week, the national settlement administrator mailed notification postcards to the eligible borrowers nationwide. These postcards will be followed by claim forms being mailed in the coming weeks. In Florida, packets containing a letter from the Attorney General, claim form, instructions and answers to frequently asked questions are being mailed to eligible borrowers now through Oct. 12.
Borrowers should complete their claim forms and return them as soon as possible in the envelope provided, or file them online at www.nationalmortgagesettlement.com. The deadline for all claims is January 18, 2013. Payment checks are expected to be mailed in mid-2013.
