Reverse Mortgages ~ Is Reverse Mortgage Income Taxable? - Part 5

Is My Reverse Mortgage Taxable?

Money received from a reverse mortgage is not taxable as additional income. Remember, this is a loan you are taking out. This is already your money, so to speak. A reverse mortgage does not affect regular social security income. A reverse mortgage also does not affect Medicare benefits.

One thing you may want to do to be certain a reverse mortgage does not affect any other important areas of your life, is to contact your local Agency on Aging.  A toll-free number for this office is 1-800-677-1116. You may also visit for more information.

I love your blog. 

It is like a fabulous reference guide for all things mortgages/financing. 

So wonderfully comprehensive and so easy to understand!

Great stuff dude.  I love the fact that this is not a taxable event.  Most seniors are not aware of that.  Anyway, you're great at sharing the wealth of information that is seeping out of your brain.  You da man!

JoAnna - Thanks for your kind words. Is is flattering that people would use my knowledge to help themselves regarding financing. I mean, it is always our objective as professionals, but through this venue I can help an even broader population than I can meeting face-to-face with people. It is really great.

Larry - That is one of the most common questions I get, along with the one about Social security and pension income.
