Due to the Covid-19 Outbreak, many mortgage lenders are offering Forbearance assistance. Forbearance means your mortgage lender or bank may be willing to pause or reduce mortgage payments for a limited period of time. It does not eliminate your payment or erase what you owe on your mortgage. With a mortgage forbearance missed or reduced payments must be repaid at a future date.

It is recommended that if you are able to make or keep up with your home mortgage payments, do so. A forbearance only delays the payments to a future time when you’ll have to make them up on top of your normal mortgage payments.
