What happens if I pass away during my loan before I receive the full amount of the loan?

April 27, 2018

If you pass away while you have a reverse mortgage loan, any funds that have not been accessed will be applied to your estate (they remain as equity in the home). When a borrower dies, heirs are given six months to either repay the loan or agree to the sale of the home. The proceeds from the sale are used to repay the loan and any remaining funds belong to the heirs.
