HAMP Calculator Helps Determine Modification Eligibility

May 24, 2011

 The U.S. Treasury Department has developed an online calculator to assist homeowners in determining eligibility for assistance under the federal Home Affordable Modification Program. HAMP is a federally funded program that defines the process for borrowers who are in default, at risk of imminent default, or in foreclosure to modify their home mortgage to a more affordable monthly payment targeted at 31 percent of their monthly gross income. The HAMP calculator, found at, is designed to calculate the net present value (NPV) of their mortgage, and can be used by homeowners prior to applying for a HAMP modification with their lender. The NPV is a formula used to determine your eligibility for a loan modification under the HAMP Program. The Treasury Department cautions that the calculator “provides only an estimate of a servicer’s NPV evaluation and is intended for use only as a guide.”

Unveiling the calculator at is the latest move to streamline the HAMP process. It comes on the heels of an announcement by the Treasury Department to require that servicers designate a single point-of-contact through the entire default resolution process.

If you are behind on your mortgage payments, or can’t afford your current mortgage payment, you have options! In addition to the federal bankruptcy laws, HAMP is one of several government programs that are available to homeowners in distress. In some cases, bankruptcy can provide time for the homeowner to negotiate lower payments with the lender, repay mortgage arrears, or even strip away a second or third mortgage loan.

The housing bubble has burst, but that doesn’t mean the fallout must rain down all over you and your family. Protect your home by taking advantage of the legal processes in place to refinance, modify, or discharge your home debt. Speak with an experienced bankruptcy attorney and discuss your legal options.
