Anything for people like me from the settlement between the banks and the states

The Miami Herald said to call the bigs banks as you might be entitled to something as a result of the settlement. I called and I didn't get anything.

I purchased in Sept 2010 FHA 3.5 percent down paid $305,000 for a 4/4 on a lake with a pool and a large patio and a 12,000 sq. ft. Lot in Miami, Florida. We did have to make some expensive repairs and my savings are pretty much wiped out from that but I still have more expensive repairs to make. I bet I could have gotten this home for $200,000 had the Fed and Banks not lent money to anyone with a pulse.

Am I entitled to anything from the settlement? I would love to lower my $2450 house payment so I can start saving money for my three daughters ages 4,4, and 9. I would love to refi to 3.5% without coming out of pocket.

Ps I have made all my mortgage payments and my credit score is excellent and both my wife and I are employed full time.

You're not qualified for these programs; loan must be backed by Fannie Mae or Freddie Mac., and FHA loan is not HARP-eligible. http://themortgagereports.com/259/harp-making-home-affordable-guidelines

There is another program for FHA insured loans, but you unfortunately out of luck like many others whose FHA loan was endorsed (insured) after May 31st 2009 :( http://themortgagereports.com/1604/fha-streamline-refinance-mip-refund
