Fannie Follows Freddie's Lead in Extending Forbearance Period for Unemployed

Services for Real Estate Pros with Charfen Institute

Fannie Mae revealed its new Unemployment Forbearance Program, which mortgage servicers are required to implement by March 1 for all Fannie Mae-owned and backed loans.

Servicers can now provide up to six months of relief for eligible unemployed borrowers without Fannie's review and approval. Borrowers may also apply for an additional six months of forbearance, for a total of 12 months.

Fannie's announcement follows a similar move by Freddie Mac.

To find out if your loan is backed by either GSE, use the "Fannie Mae Loan Lookup" or "Freddie Mac Loan Lookup" tools on the Useful Links section of our website.

Alex, I am glad Fannie now also has a Unemployment Forbearance Program. It may give people enough time to get back on their feet and avoid foreclosure.
