We study a national sample of 1,172 homeowners with mortgages, who reported the current and past forbearance status of their mortgage and other household credit accounts, discussed their familiarity with and understanding of lender accommodations that might be available to them, and provided their demographic characteristics. Respondents characterize their current employment and loan characteristics, as well as past difficulty making payments or disruptions in employment experienced during the COVID-19 pandemic.
