Who to Contact for Mortgage Assistance

If you’re facing financial hardship due to COVID-19 and concerned about your housing payment, there are people available to help you, including:

Your Mortgage Company

If you are struggling to make your mortgage payments or believe you may fall behind on your payments soon, don’t wait – contact your loan servicer (the company listed on your mortgage statement) now. They’re available to help you and the sooner you contact them the more options will be available to you. The telephone number of your loan servicer should be listed on your monthly mortgage statement or coupon book.

If you're facing job loss, reduced income, illness or other issues related to COVID-19 that impact your ability to make your monthly mortgage payment, and Freddie Mac owns your mortgage, relief is available.
