The Wall Street bank, which is expected to report fourth-quarter earnings next week, said it will pay a $2.385bn civil monetary penalty, make $875m in cash payments and provide $1.8bn in consumer relief.
The bank will offer a reduction in unpaid principal for affected homeowners and borrowers, financing for construction and debt support, among other things.
