Features and Benefits

  • HAMP with 2MP achieves a more affordable mortgage payment by adjusting your interest rate, extending your term, and reducing or forbearing your principal on your first and second liens.
  • HAMP homeowners with 2MP typically save about $153 per month in addition to the savings under the first lien modification.
  • You can get help with your primary residence or rental property.
  • Just for making timely 2MP payments, you could earn up to $1,250, which is used to reduce your second lien principal balance.


You may be eligible for 2MP if you meet the following basic criteria:

  • Your first mortgage was modified under HAMP.
  • You obtained your second lien on or before January 1, 2009.
  • You owe $5,000 or more and pay $100 or more per month toward the second lien.


Mortgage companies nationwide – including Bank of America, CitiMortgage, JPMorgan Chase, and Wells Fargo -- participate in Making Home Affordable (MHA) programs.  See if your mortgage company is participating. If not, or you are not eligible for MHA, ask your mortgage company about other options available to you.
