  • When you secure a Reverse Mortgage you may select how you would like to receive your money. Your options are:
    -- Cash (You will pay interest on the full loan amount.)
    -- A line of credit (You pay interest only on the money you withdraw.)
    -- Annualized monthly payments (You pay interest on the amount you are sent each month.)

    The exact dollar amount of your annualized payments will depend on the value of your home and your age. These payments will continue until you die or otherwise terminate the loan. However, the loan will become due at that point and all money you have borrowed will need to be paid back. Most Reverse Mortgage borrowers pay back the loan with the sale of the home.

    However, Reverse Mortgages are unique in that no matter how much money you end up borrowing from the lender, you will never actually owe more than your home's value at the time the loan is repaid, even if the Reverse Mortgage lenders have paid you more money than the value of the home.

    I hope this information is useful.

  • No. With the 'standard" Reverse Mortgage program (the current interest rate of 2.955%), you can receive $4,000.00 per month for approximately 4 years. It's called a "term" monthly payment when you decide how much you want per month, and the payments will eventually stop. However, if you selected the "tenure" monthly payment option, you'd receive a check for as long as your home is your primary residence. With you, the amount you'd receive is $1,383.32 per month.
