$25 Billion Mortgage Settlement Deadline Approaching
Posted On: Jan 17, 2013

Friday is deadline to apply for part of $25B mortgage settlement

Chicago Tribune, January 14, 2013

A Friday deadline is looming for Illinois homeowners to file for claims as part of the $25 billion national mortgage foreclosure settlement that was announced last February.

About 64,000 borrowers in Illinois who lost their home to foreclosure between Jan. 1, 2008 and Dec. 31, 2011 and had their mortgage served by one of the five banks participating in the settlement may be eligible to receive financial assistance if they file a claim. The five mortgage servicers involved in the settlement were Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase and Wells Fargo.

Potential settlement recipients received initial claim packets between Sept. 24 and Oct. 12 and received a reminder letter in late December. According to the state, 27,900 claims forms for payments have been submitted by foreclosed homeowners.

"We know there are still thousands of eligible Illinois borrowers who haven't stepped forward," said Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan in a release.

"I urge anyone whose mortgage was serviced by one of these five banks and who lost their home to foreclosure to contact the settlement administrator immediately."

The deadline applies only to the direct cash payment portion of the foreclosure settlement. Other parts of the settlement, involving relief to distressed homeowners in the way of loan modifications and mortgage refinancings, continue for another two years.

More information is available at nationalmortgagesettlement.com or by calling the settlement administrator at 1-866-430-8358.
