    Hi,

    My husband deceased on 12/2008 and since then I've struggled to pay our mortgage using ss death benefits for our son (now 18 so benefits are discontinued).


    Here our details:


    Mortgage 1: 394, 282 Mortgage 2: 66,000 = 3890 per month
    My Income: 67,000 Gross/Year = 3800 net per month
    Rental Income: 12,000/ Year = 1,000 per month (home is paid off, would like to sell but is not selling)
    Total Income =78, 000 per year

    The SS Death benefit was 1,600 but I no longer receive it as of a month ago and so it was included in my tax file for 2009 as income. We purchased this home with my husband's annual salary of $110,000 which created a significant loss of income.

    Question: I live in Maryland. Should I just fill out the paperwork for assistance online or seek counseling through a non-profit service? I am considering paying for help to expedite the process. Does anyone recommend an agency to assist local to me in Maryland?

    Also, will my life insurance payout from MetLife be considered for Loan Modification?

"Hello Moe, I just wanted to tell you, your website has saved my life (literally), I stumbled on your site in the middle of losing my home, I was able to network with people going through the same thing as I am. I didn't feel alone anymore, I have tried to give back and counsel those that haven't walked in my shoes yet. We hear so much about what is wrong with America, I just wanted you to know, you are whats "right" with America."
