​The good news is that very little will change. Your interest rate and the number of payments remaining on your mortgage will stay the same. You will have a new payment mailing address, as well as a new toll-free customer service number: 1-800-724-2224.  Please allow sufficient mailing time to ensure your payments are received by the 16th of the month. Any mortgage payment received after the 16th of the month is considered late and a fee will be charged.

Your new payment mailing address is:
P.O. Box 62182
Baltimore, MD 21264-2182.

Be sure to include your coupon with your payment.  If you’ve misplaced your coupon, write your new M&T mortgage account number, which can be found on your Welcome Letter, on your check.

​Normally, we review escrow payments once a year at the same time. Your account may be adjusted again as part of the annual review and then every 12 months thereafter.

​Your mortgage payment may have increased due to an increase in your taxes and/or insurance bill. The escrow portion of your payment is based on the last tax and/or insurance payment made from your escrow account prior to your analysis.

​If you had an escrow account with your prior servicer to pay your taxes and insurance, M&T Bank will continue to pay taxes and insurance on your behalf. We can assure you that the payment of property insurance and/or taxes will not be interrupted as a result of the transfer. If your insurance or taxes are paid from your escrow/impound account, and the bill is not paid prior to transfer, M&T will pay the tax bill.

​An escrow shortage occurs when the funds in your escrow account at the time it is analyzed are less than what is needed to pay future tax and/or insurance payments.

Your escrow shortage is being collected over 12 months and is included in the escrow portion of your payment. If you prefer to pay your shortage in full, you have two options:

  1. Online: Log in to M&T Online or Mobile Banking, select your mortgage account and click the "Pay Now" button. Your mortgage loan must be current to use this option.

  2. By Mail: Send a check made payable to M&T Bank and indicate on the memo line that you are making an escrow shortage payment. Please mail the check to:

M&T Bank Attn: Escrow Department
PO Box 64787
Baltimore, Maryland 21264-4787

If you are paying your escrow shortage, the funds will be applied immediately, however your mortgage statement may not reflect changes until the analysis effective date.
