Hodge is no longer accepting new business for Equity Release Mortgages and Annuities with effect from Friday 19th February 2021.
We have sold the part of our business that is responsible for Annuities and Equity Release Mortgages, Hodge Life Assurance Company (HLAC) to Reinsurance Group of America (RGA) who are leaders in their field.
There will be no changes to existing equity release arrangements and customers will continue to be able to make cash withdrawals and apply for further borrowing as normal, the transition to RGA will be seamless from a customer point of view.
All pipeline business will be honoured subject to quotes being converted into applications within the 30-day validity period and offers completing within the three-month validity period.

- Visit our adviser portal and click register

Once you’re registered, you can submit a new DIP straight away. Just choose the product type, then you can get started.
An underwriter will come back to you with a decision within a few working hours.
