- If you had a Federal Housing Association (FHA) insured mortgage, you may be eligible for a refund from the US Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD) or FHA.
- Search the HUD database with your last name or FHA case number (3 digits, a dash, and the next 6 digits - for example, 051-456789).
- Beware of people (known as “tracers”) offering to help you collect your refund for a fee. You do not need to pay someone to collect your refund. You can obtain your refund directly from HUD, for free.
