Reverse mortgages -- a type of loan against the borrower's home that is available to seniors -- are growing in popularity. However, concerns have emerged about the adequacy of consumer protections for this product. Most reverse mortgages are made under the HUD Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program. HUD insures the mortgages, which are made by private lenders, and oversees the agencies that provide counseling to prospective HECM borrowers. This report examines issues and federal activities related to: (1) the potential benefits and costs of HECMs to borrowers; (2) misleading HECM marketing; (3) the sale of potentially unsuitable products in conjunction with HECMs; and (4) oversight of HECM counseling providers.
