Wiregrass – (WDNews) CrossCountry Mortgage (CCM), the top distributed retail mortgage lender in the nation, has introduced a groundbreaking Line of Duty Death Benefit. This new program provides up to $525,000 in mortgage protection to the families of first responders, at no additional cost.

The benefit is designed to cover the outstanding balances of home loans serviced by CCM for fallen law enforcement officers, firefighters, EMTs, and paramedics. It applies to federal, state, county, or municipal agency personnel who lose their lives in the line of duty due to external force and violence. The coverage also extends to heart attacks or strokes occurring during strenuous training or activities.

“At CCM, we believe in protecting those who protect us,” said Craig Montgomery, CCM Chief Production Officer. “When a loved one passes away, mortgage payments should be the last thing that their families are thinking about. The Line of Duty Death Benefit removes a financial strain, allowing families to focus on healing. It’s our way of saying thank you.”

Eligible participants include full-time, part-time, and volunteer first responders under 70 years old at the time of loan closing. The program covers first lien mortgages, whether conventional or government loans, and applies to primary residences, second homes, and investment properties.

CCM’s initiative underscores its commitment to the well-being of first responders and their families, ensuring financial peace of mind without any extra cost. For further details about the Line of Duty Death Benefit, contact a CCM loan officer today.
