There are certain qualifications you must meet, some of which are listed below. You should then consult your financial adviser. In addition, each borrower is required to receive counseling to enable him or her to thoroughly understand the program and how it works. Lenders who offer Reverse Mortgages can provide a list of agencies that are qualified to Mortgages provide this service.

Who can qualify?
You and your spouse, if you have one, must be 62 years old or older, own your home or only have a small mortgage, and at least one borrower must live in the home.

Anything you want to use it for.
