You’ll learn how this loan can help you:

  • Convert a portion of the equity in your home into tax-free* cash to pay your bills and enhance your cash flow during retirement.​


  • Pay off your current mortgage (if you have one) provided the borrowing limit is high enough while retaining ownership of your home during the life of the loan.​

According to the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development, more than one million households are using an FHA-insured HECM reverse mortgage.
