as I understand this Bill, even the furloughed workers will be receiving their back pay. and Trump then signed the Bill. Now it will be easier for the fed workers to work with their landlords/mortgage lenders. Note to remember: All (most?) mortgage lenders offer a one-time emergency/disaster grace period - as it is just an optional "favor" for them to do this, most folk don't know about it. Call your lender, explain the situation, and if you have never missed a payment they will work out a 1-3 month grace period that is then factored back into the following 12 payments. …..or at least they used to, anyway. I used this after the 1994 Northridge earthquake. Call your lender now and check it out BEFORE you need it. Then you will know for sure - yes or no and what their requirements are if they do provide this program.
