When a Reverse Mortgage Refinance is Not Needed
A reverse mortgage refinance is not always necessary depending on what you wish to do. If you are simply looking to change the way in which your reverse mortgage funds are disbursed, you do not need to refinance your loan. In most cases, this can be done by speaking with your reverse mortgage lender and paying a small fee. One of the benefits of the federally-insured reverse mortgage is that there are protections built-in so that you are unable to refinance if it does not benefit you. To learn more, please inquire with a specialist.
