The limit on VA loans vary by county, but it’s $417,000 in most parts of the country and up to $1,094,625 in high-cost areas.

WHAT IF I STOP PAYING THE MORTGAGE? Another advantage of a VA loan is the assistance offered to struggling borrowers. If the borrower of a VA loan can’t make payments on the mortgage, the VA can negotiate with the lender on behalf of the borrower.

“We have dedicated staff nationwide committed to helping veterans who are experiencing financial difficulty,” Bell says.

VA’s financial counselors can help borrowers negotiate repayment plans, loan modifications and other alternatives to foreclosure, he says.

Last year, the VA helped about 73,000 veterans avoid foreclosure, he says.

Regardless of whether they have VA loans, veterans who are struggling to make their mortgage payments can call 800-827-1000 for assistance.
