A reverse mortgage is a loan that allows you to convert part of your home equity into tax-free cash. It may provide you with financial relief and the ability to better manage daily living expenses.
If you are a homeowner who is at least 62 years old, our HUD-approved reverse mortgage counselors can help you explore this option and determine whether this type of loan is right for you. Our certified financial counselors will guide you through the entire process, which includes:
- Reviewing the terms of a reverse mortgage loan
- Evaluating possible alternatives to reverse mortgages
- Discussing potential financial and tax implications
Many people find themselves in need of financial assistance later in life. Rising medical costs or other unexpected expenses can be difficult to plan for. A reverse mortgage may help you stay in your home longer by getting the in-home help you need to maintain your independence. Regardless of why you need the funds, the money you get back out of your home is yours to use as you choose.
