A Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM), also known as a reverse mortgage, is a loan which enables seniors to convert equity into tax-free funds¹ or monthly cash flow, eliminate payments on their current mortgage, or purchase a home without monthly mortgage payments.² The loan is insured by the Federal Housing Administration (FHA).
The HECM is available as either an adjustable- or fixed-rate loan. The adjustable rate can adjust monthly or annually based on the LIBOR index. The fixed-rate HECM maintains the same interest rate over the life of the loan.

The HECM for Purchase can help homeowners buy their next home without having to make monthly mortgage payments.² This loan enables homeowners to use the equity from the sale of a previous residence or their current assets to buy their next primary home.
