Key features:

  • Fixed (lump-sum payment) and adjustable-rate options available
  • Adjustable-rate HECMs come with five different disbursement options: line of credit, term, tenure, modified term, or modified tenure
  • An eligible non-borrowing spouse (as defined by the FHA) can continue living in the home after the primary borrower passes away or moves out as long as the home is maintained, and the ongoing expenses are paid
