A Special HECM Reverse Mortgage Program For Veterans

September 28, 2015

Effective today, most veterans of World War 2, Korea and Vietnam who are still making payments on a home mortgage are eligible for a Kosher HECM reverse mortgage that will pay off the balance of their existing mortgage, has no required monthly payment, and is provided by participating lenders without an origination fee.

Savings to the veteran are substantial. The customary origination charges by lenders are the maximums set by HUD, which range from $2500 when the borrower’s home is valued at $100,000 or less, up to $6,000 when the borrower’s home is valued at $400,000 or more.

The out-of-pocket cost to the veteran consists only of an appraisal fee, usually about $400, and a counseling fee which is about $125. Mortgage insurance, title insurance and other charges are financed.

Veterans also receive all the standard benefits of the Kosher HECM Reverse Mortgage program. These include:

  • Access to the professor’s option optimization calculator, which allows the veteran to see the impact of any combination of draw options on his future financial status.
  • Decision support by impartial experts, to make doubly sure that the draw options chosen are in the veteran’s best interest.
  • Lock price protection, to make sure that the price locked by the lender shortly before closing has not been manipulated.
  • And ombudsman support by the professor in the unlikely event that something goes amiss
