VA Reaching Out to Vets with Mortgage Problems

The Veterans Administration (VA) is offering help to veterans and active-duty personnel facing difficulties in making their mortgage payments. Depending on a veteran’s circumstances, VA can intercede with the borrower on the veteran’s behalf to pursue options such as repayment plans, forbearance, and loan modification, that would allow a veteran to keep a home. To get help from a VA financial counselor, veterans can call VA toll-free at 1-877-827-3702.

For information about VA's home loan guaranty program, go to the United States Department of Veterans Affairs website.
