These days, it’s vital to ensure your finances are well-protected. Columbia Bank takes extensive measures to keep your accounts secure. But it’s important you understand that you play a role, too.
We aim to keep you apprised of possible risks by sharing information, tools and ideas to protect what you’ve worked so hard to earn.
If you are at risk of facing foreclosure, your lender may contact you directly. If you are contacted by your lender, try to work with the lender to assess your ability to repay the debt, as well as to consider other options. The letter or notice that you receive may contain the toll-free phone number for the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), 800-569-4287.
HUD-approved counseling agencies are available to provide you with the information and assistance you need to avoid foreclosure. Foreclosure-prevention counseling services are provided free-of-charge by nonprofit housing counseling agencies working in partnership with the Federal Government. In addition,as part of the Homeowner Affordability and Stability Plan (HASP), the Making Home Affordable initiative allows eligible borrowers to refinance or modify their existing first mortgage.
