To help seniors living on a limited income, Heartland’s Regular Advance loan product allows you to draw down funds monthly, quarterly or annually to help pay for general expenses while in retirement. This money can act as a sort of extra income so you can still live comfortably even if you don’t have enough in superannuation. You only have to pay interest on the funds you’ve received.
Heartland also offers a reverse mortgage product to help seniors pay off credit card or other high-interest debts. You can receive the money as a lump sum or set up a cash reverse facility so you have the freedom to access funds when you need to in the future to pay for expenses like a new car, home repairs, or even a vacation. You’ll only need minimal income to qualify, such as superannuation or a government aged pension.
With a Heartland Aged Care Reverse Mortgage, you can cover the often high costs of aged care accommodation without having to sell your home or overburden your family. You may be able to release as much as 45% of your home’s value, depending on your age. This means you’ll still retain ownership of your home.
