I have to bring this up because I have heard people using the terms interchangeably as if they are the same thing.  I can assure you they are NOT the SAME thing.

Things are changing at a rapid rate right now and a lot of financial conversations are needed. It’s easy to get confused by the terminology so let’s make sure we are clear on this one (forbearance vs deferment) and what questions you should be asking your lender.


One means that you will be paying a lump sum of 3 to 4 months worth of missed payments at the end of the period and the other means that the missed payments will be tacked onto the end of your loan period or paid off in installments over time.  That is a HUGE DIFFERENCE.  For many people it could mean the difference between keeping their home or just pushing the chances of foreclosure a few months down the road.

Here is an article from realtor.com that shares some additional insight. https://www.realtor.com/…/mortgage-def…/

Also take a look at the Consumer Finance Protection Bureau‘s (CFPB) Guide To Coronavirus Mortgage Relief article.
