Transamerica Homefirst, a large player in reverse mortgages, announced changes in its programs that will give borrowers more money.

A reverse mortgage, usually offered to senior citizens, gives the borrower a lump sum or monthly payments while he or she continues to live in the house. The loan is paid back when the borrower vacates the home, sells it, or dies.
