You can also get help from a foreclosure prevention
counselor. These are HUD-approved, trained counsel-
ors that will work with you, examine your financial
situation, and offer guidance on how best to avoid
default or foreclosure. They can also represent you in
negotiations with your lender if you need them to.

Financial Assistance
You also need to make sure you’re not missing out
on any financial assistance programs. The National
Council on Aging’s website (BenefitsCheckUp.org)
contains a database of more than 2,500 federal, state
and local programs that can help seniors with prescrip-
tion drug costs, health care, food, utilities, and other
basic needs. The site will help you locate programs
that you may be eligible for and will show you how to
apply.
