Senior Care Center Explains Reverse Mortgage

Senior Care Center1, a free online resource that helps families find long-term care facilities for their elderly loved ones, recently published an article on their website about reverse mortgages. Reverse mortgages are complicated and often difficult to understand, and this is why the article aims to explain the term and how it can be beneficial for senior citizens. Learn more here:

When utilized correctly, a reverse mortgage can be used to fund one’s living expenses. It is an option available to seniors who are trying to find ways to fund their living expenses, senior care, retirement or lifestyle expenses. The article elaborates on this, explaining that, “Reverse mortgages are an opportunity for those who are in their golden years (above age 62) to collect cash payments by turning their homes into equity. This is a great tool for those who are wanting to do retirement planning, and the monthly payments are tax-free.” It is also a useful strategy for those who do not wish to move or sell their homes but are looking for an additional income.

Moreover, seniors can obtain financial aid using their home’s equity value as collateral. With a reverse mortgage, if one still has a mortgage payment on one’s property, the monthly payments from the financial aid will be used to pay the mortgage. These financial aid options would also supplement one’s income, make remodeling or repairs to the home or pay off expensive medical bills or living expenses. Learn more here:

To quote the article, “Most reverse mortgages are also known as HECM, home equity conversion mortgage.” These are federally insured cash advances that are backed by the US Government. The article further states that, to be eligible for this option, “the Federal Housing Administration has to approve of the condition of your home. Borrowers get to choose from a variety of flexible plans in how they receive the distributed funds: a lump-sum, a line of credit, or monthly payments.” The great benefit of a reverse mortgage is that one does not need to pay back the financial aid while still living in one’s home. However, one will be responsible for maintaining the property and paying for costs such as insurance for the house. If one moves out, the financial aid can be paid back through selling the property. It only needs to be paid off 6 months after one passes away or moves out from said property. One’s family may pay what is remaining from the financial aid by either paying off the reverse mortgage to keep the property, or by selling off the home.

The article explains that there are also other types of reverse mortgages, such as the HECM for purchase financial aid, which allows one to purchase one’s next home. Similar to the regular HECM, this plan is also federally insured by the government through the Federal Housing Administration. Another type is the proprietary reverse mortgage. This is similar to the typical HECM reverse mortgage and allows homeowners to convert their home equity into cash payments. This option is not federally insured by the Federal Housing Administration and is therefore less regulated (with certain restrictions). One may keep track of options through the Senior Care Center1 website or their official page on Facebook.
