The Answer

 

Dear Glenn,

The auto-pay issue is a problem with Bank of America. Other have complained about trying to get the auto pay automatic deduction cancelled for payments on their Bank of America credit cards. But I’m unclear if your mortgage is from Bank of America or that is just the account that is hit for the payment from another mortgage company.

You have two options to stop the Auto Pay from the Bank of America account. Neither involves Bank of America if they are not the mortgage company.

You can contact the mortgage company, who initiate the debit from your bank account, and change it or cancel it with them. Or, you can close the Bank of America checking account and move to another bank. I admit, both options are a hassle. This is exactly why I rarely, if ever, enroll in any automatic debit program and instead initiate the payment myself using online banking.

Good luck.

    In the past year my husband and I have lost approximately 60,000.00 dollars in our 401. We still have enough left in our 401 to pay off our home. We are in our mid 50′s and wonder if that would be advisable.
