Frequently Asked Questions

A Household Loan is our innovative approach to borrowing against home equity for responsible, long-term, retirement funding. It is a type of reverse mortgage.

A reverse mortgage allows you to borrow money using the equity in your home as security. Interest is charged like any other loan, but you don’t need to make repayments while you live in your home. The loan must be repaid in full when you sell or leave your home or, in most cases, if you move into residential aged care.

Please see the Reverse Mortgage Information Statement for more information.

To find out more about reverse mortgages, including a reverse mortgage calculator to help you work out how much equity you may have in the future, visit the Australian Securities and Investments Commission’s free consumer website at www.moneysmart.gov.au.
