Reverse Mortgage Loan Attorney

A reverse mortgage, technically called a HECM (Home Equity Conversion Mortgage), enables homeowners over age 62 to convert a portion of their home equity into income tax–free funds to pay for in-home care, medical devices and equipment, and home accessibility modifications necessary to age in place during declining health — while potentially insulating their other assets from significant depletion. By using the strategies explained in the linked NAELA Journal article written by fellow elder law attorney and reverse mortgage loan officer Stephen R. Pepe, clients whose choice of long-term care setting is their home will discover that a HECM can sometimes outperform long-term care insurance polices in terms of the amount of money available for care, the versatility of those funds, startup costs, and ongoing out-of-pocket costs.
