File deadline soon for foreclosed homes

January 10, 2013

Did you or someone you know lose your home to foreclosure between January 2008 and December 2011?

In February 2012, the State Attorneys General reached a joint settlement worth $25 billion with Ally/GMAC, Bank of America, Citi, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo. The five banks were found to have violated the law when processing many foreclosures nationwide.

About 2 million borrowers may be eligible for financial compensation if their home was foreclosed by one of the above five mortgage lenders. Eligible borrowers received notice in the mail to file a claim.

If you received a notice, remember to file your claim by January 18

If you believe you are eligible for relief, but have not received a claim form, contact the National Mortgage Settlement Administrator at 1-866-430-8358. To file a claim online, go to
