Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC Recognizes Veterans with Veteran Discount Program

Bloomfield, NJ (November 11, 2019) – Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC (RMF), a leading national reverse mortgage lender dedicated to helping older Americans achieve financial peace of mind, recently announced its Veteran Discount Program.* 

“We recognize the sacrifices made by the men and women who have served in our country’s Armed Forces. As a token of our gratitude, and our way of saying thank you, we have created our new Veteran Discount Program,” said David Peskin, President of Reverse Mortgage Funding.  “Our veterans have dedicated so much of their lives toward keeping our country safe, and now it is time to see them enjoying retirement with less financial stress.  A reverse mortgage can help veterans stay in their home without having to worry about a monthly mortgage payment and may increase their cash flow. I can’t think of a better way to show our appreciation than to make reverse mortgages more accessible to them by offering the Veteran Discount Program.”

Available to U.S. military veterans and their spouses (including the spouses of deceased veterans), the new program can give customers who can offer documentation of their service a credit of up to $450 toward appraisal costs on their reverse mortgage. 

The Veteran Discount Program is yet another example of RMF’s dedication to providing an extraordinary and positive customer experience, in addition to its Customer for Life Commitment. RMF has earned a 98% customer satisfaction1 rating; a 4.7-star / Excellent score on Trustpilot;2 4.8 out of 5 stars on LendingTree;3 and an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau5.

A More Flexible Home Equity Loan

If you’re 62 or older, there is a home equity line of credit option that offers greater financial flexibility than a traditional Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC). It’s called a Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) line of credit. 
If you have an existing mortgage or home equity loan you could refinance them with a HECM line of credit and get enhanced benefits, including a flexible payment feature and a line of credit that GROWS when left untouched.
As with any mortgage, you must meet your loan obligations, keeping current with property taxes, insurance, and keeping your home in good condition.
