as “FHA”, provides mortgage insurance on loans
made by FHA-approved lenders throughout the
United States and its territories. FHA insures
mortgages on single family, multifamily,
manufactured homes and hospitals. It is the

What is a Reverse Mortgage?
reverse mortgage is a loan that enables senior
homeowners, age 62 and older, to convert part of
their equity into a tax-free income - without
having to sell their home, give up title to it,
or make monthly mortgage payments. The loan only
becomes due when the last borrower(s)
permanently leaves the home.
