Your Social Security and Medicare benefits will not be affected by a reverse mortgage. However, if you are on Medicaid or receive SSI, any reverse mortgage proceeds that you received must be used immediately. Otherwise, the funds that you retain can be counted as an asset, which may have an impact on your eligibility. Contact a Medicaid expert or Area Agency on Aging for more info.
