Procedure:

When a customer is expecting to receive financial assistance, there are required documents that must be completed, e.g., a W-9 and other information about the mortgage, including but not limited to, information about past due payments, payment amount, payment breakdown, due date and upcoming disbursements.  A customer may request a payment or financial voucher via a phone call or as a written request.

If a customer calls inquiring about how to submit payment or financial voucher request, then the designated Customer Service Team Member completes the following steps:

  1. Advise the customer to send the documentation to our Written/Research Team via email or mail requesting a review
  2. Notate the loan in the SERN screen in MSP to indicate that the customer called to inquire about submitting financial assistance documentation
