Get tax-free cash with an Equitable Bank Reverse Mortgage

What can a reverse mortgage do for you?

A reverse mortgage gives you access to the equity that already exists in your home, turning a portion of it into an additional source of cash—tax and payment free. This financing solution allows you to enjoy your lifestyle and focus on your priorities, like paying off debt, covering everyday expenses, making renovations, and supporting your family—all while retaining ownership of your home, and making no payments until the mortgage is due.

You may be eligible if:

  • You are Canadian, and are aged 55 and over
  • You live in a major urban centre in BC, AB, ON, or QC
  • You live in your home for more than 6 months per year
  • Your home’s value is more than $250,000


A reverse mortgage can help you maintain your financial independence while keeping your family’s future in mind.

  • Tax-free cash
  • No monthly payments

Choosing between a reverse mortgage and a line of credit

When it comes to deciding on a lending option, your choice depends on what matters to you most. Unlike a reverse mortgage, a line of credit may require payments and significant amounts of verifiable income for qualification. If you’re looking to access tax-free cash, with plenty of repayment options, a reverse mortgage might be the better option.

Considering a reverse mortgage is part of a larger financial decision when it comes to your home and your family. As you discuss this option with your loved ones, you’ll be better prepared to make a decision that’s right for you.
