60 IS THE NEW 62

Reverse mortgages are no longer reserved for homeowners and homebuyers over 62 years of age. CCF is offering a reinvented reverse mortgage, with a new product for those 60 years of age and older


You may be able to access even more equity than with traditional reverse mortgages in the market.



Since there is no mortgage insurance premium, Equity Elite may have lower up-front costs than a traditional HECM.



Traditional reverse mortgages, also known as Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECM’s), changes the game for longtime homeowners who wanted to access valuable equity they have built up over time.  But HECM’s have limitations on who can borrow, and how much. With Equity Elite, more people have more access to their home equity.


How It Works

Nadine is 60 years old. She and her husband, Robert, have recently moved into a luxury condo, but currently have a home equity loan that requires them to make burdensome monthly principal and interest payments.

By refinancing her existing home equity loan with a reverse mortgage, Nadine and Robert can drastically reduce that monthly payment, thanks to the reverse mortgage’s flexible repayment feature. (As with any mortgage, she much meet her loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, homeowners insurance and any homeowners association fees, and keeping her home in good condition.)

The Result

Nadine and Robert are able to keep more money in their pockets each month.

They can more financially prepare for the future.

They can avoid tapping into their savings and invested assets that are a source of income.

Equity Elite Reverse Mortgage™ (“Equity Elite”) is Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC’s proprietary loan program, and it is not affiliated with the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) loan program, which is insured by FHA. Equity Elite is available to qualified borrowers who also may be eligible for HUD, FHA’s HECM program or are seeking loan proceeds that are higher than HUD, FHA’s HECM program limit. Equity Elite currently is available only for eligible properties in select states. Please contact your loan originator to see if it is currently available in your state. 

With this pricing option, borrower receives a lender credit covering nearly all closing costs. There is a non-refundable independent counseling fee of approximately $125 on average, which the borrower pays directly to the counseling agency. Terms and conditions apply. Not available in all states.

Upon a maturity event, any non-borrowing individuals with an ownership interest in the property, including non-borrowing spouses, will have 90 days to purchase the property from the estate or, if the non-borrower inherits the property, pay the loan in full using any sources of funds available to them. Any non-borrowing individual, including a non-borrowing spouse, should have a plan to pay off an Equity Elite reverse mortgage upon the borrower’s death or any other maturity event. If the non-borrower is unwilling or unable to purchase the property or pay the loan in full, there is no protection for the non-borrower (including a non-borrower spouse) to maintain an interest in the home or to continue residing in the home past the maturity event and the non-borrower may be evicted upon foreclosure. The FHA HECM program has protections in place for certain non-borrowing parties, so a reverse mortgage applicant with certain non-borrowing parties should strongly consider a FHA-insured HECM loan (see HECM guidelines or ask an CCF representative for details). Under the Equity Elite reverse mortgage loan program, a maturity event occurs when the last surviving borrower no longer lives in the home as his or her primary residence for at least 12 months, the property charges (including taxes, insurance, HOA dues or any other property charges) are not paid, required repairs are not completed or the property is not maintained, or any other maturity event, as specified in the Security Instrument, occurs.
