Reverse mortgages are becoming popular in America. Reverse mortgages are a special type of home loan that lets a homeowner convert the equity in his/her home into cash. They can give older Americans greater financial security to supplement social security, meet unexpected medical expenses, make home improvements, and more.

If you are interested in a reverse mortgage, beware of scam artists that charge thousands of dollars for information that is free from HUD!

To report fraud or abuse in the reverse mortgage program, contact your local homeownership center.
