A reverse mortgage is a type of home loan that enables homeowners ages 62 and older to convert a portion of their home’s equity into cash, as long as they continue to use their home as a primary residence. Instead of making monthly mortgage payments, the homeowner receives payments from their lender. Over time, the amount owed on the mortgage loan increases and the amount of equity stored in the home decreases. Whether the homeowner has already paid off his or her mortgage or still has some payments to make, a reverse mortgage can offer financial security during retirement.
