What is an Index Rate?

Index Rate Definition

An index rate is an interest rate that is tied to a specific benchmark. In most instances, this is the prime rate, but there are other benchmarks that may be used. As the benchmarked rate rises and drops, the rate on the loan will follow along. Your lender should disclose the benchmarked rate before you agree to take out a reverse mortgage loan.
