Reverse Mortgages

A Reverse Mortgage from First Midwest can help you achieve your retirement goals and give you the financial security you need to fully enjoy your retirement years. It's a powerful borrowing alternative that will turn the equity in your home into cash – with no monthly payments and a tax-free1 income stream. You do not have to repay the loan as long as you live in your home, and there are no monthly payments. A First Midwest Reverse Mortgage requires no payment from you until you sell your home or it passes to your estate. 

Reverse Mortgage advantages include: 

  • Easy qualification. 
  • Tax-free income. 
To qualify for a reverse mortgage:
  • The youngest borrower is at least 62 years of age.
  • The home is occupied as your primary residence.
  • Borrower(s) must attend a counseling session with an approved counselor. Your family members and friends are highly encouraged to attend this session with you.
Other important information to consider when applying for a reverse mortgage:
  • Reverse mortgages are loans with fees and compounding interest like other loans.
  • Borrowers with a reverse mortgage are still responsible for paying property taxes, homeowner's insurance, and property maintenance. Failing to meet these requirements can trigger a loan default that results in foreclosure.
  • Borrowers should consult a financial advisor and/or appropriate government agency for any effect on taxes or government benefits.
  • Homeowners who obtain a reverse mortgage at age 62 may deplete their home equity and run out of loan proceeds later in life.
