Reverse Mortgage

Features & Benefits

  • A Reverse Mortgage or Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) is a low-interest federally regulated loan.
  • It allows senior homeowners 62 and older to convert a portion of the value in their home into tax-free cash.
  • Instead of making monthly payments to the lender, the homeowner receives from the lender.
  • Repayment of the loan is not required until you (or the last surviving spouse) permanently leave the home as a primary residence.
  • Reverse mortgages have a "non-recourse" feature, which means that the total amount owed can never exceed the appraised value of the home.
