Reverse Mortgage: Is it a good idea for me?

Make Smart Choices
In order to qualify for a reverse mortgage you must be at least 62 years of age. The federal government also requires that you participate in a reverse mortgage counseling session with an approved non-profit agency. GreenPath is certified and our reverse mortgage counseling can be completed over the phone or in person. Our goal is to help you understand all your options so you can feel confident and make an informed decision. We can also assist you if you already have a reverse mortgage and are having trouble paying your property taxes or insurance.
