If you’re among those economically impacted by the coronavirus pandemic, you might be worried about how to pay your mortgage. Federal and state governments have announced plans to help stressed homeowners during this time.

In these unparalleled times there is a great deal of distortion about recently announced forbearance programs. First let me emphasize; Forbearance is not forgiveness!

It’s important to know the facts when considering forbearance or any other aid during these uneasy times. Make sure above all you contact your Financial Institution first.
