Understanding a Reverse Mortgage

A reverse mortgage enables senior homeowners to tap into the equity in their home and use it as a source of tax-free income. The loan can be used to help pay for anything, from everyday expenses and utility bills to home repairs.

Unlike traditional home-equity loans, there are no monthly payments. You do not have to repay the loan as long as you own and occupy the home as your principal residence. When the home is sold or inherited, the money you borrowed, plus the interest and fees, will be due. Generally, borrowers or their estate repay the loan by selling the home. If the home is sold, you or your estate may keep the proceeds in excess of the amount due and are not responsible for any shortages, ever. The amount you are eligible to borrow depends on your age, the interest rate and the amount of equity in your home. The equity is based on an appraisal, or the maximum claim amount, whichever is less. There is a maximum claim amount that varies by county in your state.
