Mortgage Stimulus and Mortgage Loan Modification

by Deb from Muskegon, MI USA

Regarding Mortgage Stimulus and Mortgage Loan Modification: I have looked all over the internet to find out how this new mortgage stimulus will help me. I am a 49 year old, unemployed woman and need assistance desperately.



I am on my last month of initial unemployment and I assume that I will qualify for the 33 week extension. In the mean time, my mortgage payment takes half of my monthly unemployment income. The rest of my money goes to the other bills I owe, such as utilities, gas, groceries, etc.

I find myself sitting at home A LOT now and am getting very nervous on how I will benefit on the economic stimulus plan.

Can you give me some information? Thanks, Deb
