REVERSE MORTGAGE LOAN PRODUCTS AND PROGRAMS: A reverse mortgage, available to borrower(s) age 62 or over, is a loan based upon the current equity in a borrower’s primary residence, with funds disbursed in one lump sum, or over regularly scheduled intervals. As long as the borrower occupies the property as their principal residence, there are no required loan payments, with the loan balance due and payable upon sale, or when the property is otherwise vacated. The borrower DOES RETAIN the responsibility to maintain the property to FHA standards, and remain current on ALL taxes (such as property), insurance (such as hazard), dues (such as homeowner association), and other such costs, as these are separate from the reverse mortgage itself, and WILL NOT be paid by the lender. Borrowers must complete counseling with a government-certified counselor before applying. Consult a tax professional for potential tax consequences and a benefits coordinator for questions about Social Security or Medicare Benefits.
