TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) - Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi says that Floridians who lost their homes to foreclosure still have a chance to get a share of a large national settlement.
The initial deadline for people to file for a claim payment was Jan. 18, but state officials say claims filed afterwards are likely to be accepted. Those eligible could receive at least $840.
The settlement applies to loans serviced by Bank of America, Wells Fargo, JP Morgan Chase, Citi or GMAC/Ally. Payments will go to people who lost their home to foreclosure between 2008 and 2011.
Florida has been one of the states hit hardest by the foreclosure crisis.
So far only about half of the estimated 150,000 people in Florida eligible for claim payments have responded to mail notices or phone calls.
