During the last Interim Joint Committee on Appropriations and Revenue, the Office of the Attorney General provided committee members with a document outlining the National Mortgage Servicing Settlement.
The document included information ranging from settlement compensation help to foreclosure help to who to contact for assistance.
I found the document very informative and wanted to share it with you. If you are in foreclosure or at risk of default, the information below might be of help to you.

Settlement Compensation Help
If you were foreclosed on between January 1, 2008 and December 31, 2011 by one of the five mortgage servicers involved in the settlement, you may be eligible for some compensation. Your Attorney General and the Settlement Administrator will contact people by mail who may qualify for a payment. If you are concerned that you could be difficult to locate, contact your state Attorney General’s Office at 502-696-5300.
If you have been scammed by a foreclosure rescue operator or a debt relief organization, contact your state Attorney General’s Office at 502-696-5395.
If you are a tenant who lives in residence that was foreclosed upon, you can contact legal aid at 800-782-1924.
