COVID-19: I have an FHA Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) but can’t pay my property taxes right now. Will I lose my home?

No. You must contact your HECM servicer, the company who manages your HECM, as soon as possible. Upon your request, they must delay submitting a request to call your HECM due and payable.
