Federal Housing Administration (FHA): Strengthening the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage Program
Document Number: 2016-19255
Type: Proposed Rule
Date: 2016-08-11
Agency: Department of Housing and Urban Development
On May 19, 2016, HUD published in the Federal Register, a proposed rule that would codify several significant changes to FHA's Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program that were previously issued under the authority granted to HUD in the Housing and Economic Recovery Act of 2008 and the Reverse Mortgage Stabilization Act of 2013, and to make additional regulatory changes. The Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program is FHA's reverse mortgage program that enables seniors who have equity in their homes to withdraw a portion of the accumulated equity. The intent of the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program is to ease the financial burden on elderly homeowners facing increased health, housing, and subsistence costs at a time of reduced income. This document opens the public comment period solely for the provision addressed in this document to address a suggested change offered during the public comment period for the proposed rule regarding the lender's option to file a claim when the loan balance reaches 98 percent of the maximum claim amount.
