How a Reverse Mortgage Works in WI

Seniors hoping to make the most of their retirement in the Badger State may be able to use a reverse mortgage in Wisconsin to achieve their goals. Also known as a home equity conversion mortgage (HECM), a reverse mortgage in WI enables eligible homeowners to tap into a portion of the equity in their homes while continuing to live on the property. The equity is converted into loan proceeds, which can benefit seniors by:

  • Paying off existing debt and settling financial obligations
  • Freeing up funds for travel or leisure in retirement
  • Covering unexpected medical bills or home renovations necessary to age in place

For more information on how the HECM program works, refer to our reverse mortgage guide. GoodLife is proud to serve as a reverse mortgage company lending in Wisconsin and remains committed to helping seniors live The GoodLife in Retirement.

Wisconsin Reverse Mortgage Process

GoodLife understands the pressure and stress that can arise out of financial uncertainty, so our reverse mortgage application process is designed to provide eligible borrowers with the funds they need as quickly as possible.


A Reverse Mortgage Specialist will walk you through the terms and structure of a HECM while asking about your circumstances and retirement goals. This allows us to establish whether a reverse mortgage in WI is the right fit for your needs.


All reverse mortgage applicants are required to attend a counseling session approved by HUD to receive more information regarding how the HECM program works, and how it may pertain to your situation.


After receiving your application, GoodLife can coordinate a property valuation from an FHA-approved appraiser that will be used when determining the value of the loan.


Once all documents are signed and the loan is approved, a lender will disburse the funds in the method of your choice.
