Interest on a FEMA debt

Will interest accumulate while I appeal my debt?


Yes. If you do not repay the full amount of the debt to FEMA within 30 days of the date on the Notice of Debt letter, FEMA will begin to charge interest on the debt. The annual interest rate for 2011 is 1.0%. For additional information regarding the interest rate please visit the Financial Management Service: Treasury Current Value of Funds Rate page.

If your appeal is approved, any money you paid to FEMA will be returned to you.
