I was told I had to buy an annuity or an investment product to get a HECM reverse mortgage. Is this true?

No. No one can require you to buy a financial product to qualify for a HECM reverse mortgage. 

If a lender or broker tells you that you have to buy something (such as an annuity) to get a HECM reverse mortgage, this is probably a scam.

If you have a problem, submit a complaint online with the CFPB or call (855) 411-CFPB (2372).
