CHIP Reverse Mortgage

Latest News Trish Pigott 30 Jul

What is a reverse mortgage?

A reverse mortgage is a way for Canadian homeowners aged 55 or older to turn up to 55%* of the value of their home into tax-free cash. It lets you retire safely and securely in the home you love. It’s a loan secured against the value of the home. Unlike a traditional home equity line of credit or conventional mortgage, there are no monthly payments for as long as you live in your home. There’s no retirement like home.

The CHIP Reverse Mortgage is provided by HomeEquity Bank, a Federally Regulated Canadian Bank.
