  • Forbearance;
  • Moratorium on Foreclosure;
  • Late Charge Waivers; and
  • Suspension of credit bureau reporting on affected loans.

The VA also encourages servicers to extend special forbearance to members of the National Guard who experience financial difficulties as a result of their service. 

Finally, the VA encourages servicers and borrowers to review their Guidance on Natural Disasters
