As president of the National Reverse
Mortgage Lenders Association, Peter Bell has been a tireless advocate for the avaqilability of reverse mortgage
s to seniors, and a staunch supporter of sensible improvements to make the reverse mortgage
system better. Bell pushed Congress this year to pass the Reverse
Mortgage Stabilization Act of 2013, which aimed to increase the stability of the reverse mortgage
system. After the act's passage, the NRMLA worked with the Department of Housing and Urban Development to further refine and improve the program.
