So what are the payment options and when do you have to pay them back? There are a couple of ways that you can receive reverse mortgage payments. Some chose fixed monthly payments, a lump sum, or a combination of the two. The payback on a reverse mortgage begins when you no longer live in the home upon which the reverse mortgage is taken.
