A Reverse Mortgage can assist in providing a tax-free cash flow to eligible homeowners 62 years of age or older. The Reverse Mortgage allows homeowners access to money that they have built up as equity in their homes. Primarily, the mortgage is designed to strengthen seniors personal and financial independence by making funds available to the homeowner, without the obligation of a monthly payment while in the home.
