GreenPath Frequently Asked Questions Graphic

How much does it cost to work with a housing expert?
There is no cost.  Accel's housing counseling services are free.

Can you help members refinance or modify their mortgage?
Our experts can contact the servicer with the member on the line, but we can’t guarantee specific outcomes.  The outcome depends on what the servicer is willing to offer and/or the eligibility for specific state and federal housing programs.

Do you provide reverse mortgage loans?
No, GreenPath is not a lender and is not involved in the lending transaction.  We are an impartial educational resource to help seniors and their family members make an informed decision.

Does GreenPath or its Accel program receive support from reverse mortgage lenders?
No, we do not receive any payment or consideration from reverse mortgage lenders.  Non-profit housing counseling agencies are not permitted to receive money or direct referrals from reverse mortgage lenders.
