What do I need to know about this loan?

Reverse mortgages are for older Australians who own their own homes and need some money to fund their retirement or other expenses.

It works like this: You borrow money against the value of your own home, either as a regular payment or a line of credit. You are charged interest on what you've borrowed.

But unlike traditional mortgages, you don't make regular repayments. Instead, interest is calculated and added to the original loan amount, then the total amount is due when the property is sold.

Before taking out a reverse mortgage, it's important to seek independent financial advice on your retirement objectives and needs.
