A Platinum reverse mortgage features:


  • Loan amounts up to $4 million in available cash and the widest range of eligible home values

  • Attractive low rates

  • No penalties for prepayment

  • No mortgage insurance premiums, which may mean lower upfront costs

  • Comparable rate


And here’s where the Platinum Line of Credit really gives you the gold:

  • No required monthly mortgage payments

  • A reusable line of credit

  • All the borrower benefits and safeguards of a standard reverse mortgage program

A choice of payout options to help you meet your financial goals:
