Reverse Mortgage Calculator

According to the AARP, a reverse mortgage is a loan you borrow against your home that you don't have to pay back for as long as you live there. The amount of cash you could receive depends on a number of factors, including your age, where your house is located and what it's worth. You may also choose to receive the cash in a lump-sum advance, a credit line account or a fixed monthly loan advance that you receive as long as you stay in your home.

The AARP provides a reverse mortgage calculator to help you calculate and compare approximate estimates for two nationally available reverse mortgage programs.

 AARP offers counseling through the HUD network of HECM counselors. You can reach a counselor by calling 1-800-209-8085 weekdays and asking for reverse mortgage counseling [source: AARP].
