The National Council on Aging (NCOA), a leading nonprofit service and advocacy organization for older Americans, announced the addition of Madeline Halmo of Washington, D.C. as one of fifteen new staff members on Monday.
Halmo joins NCOA’s Home Equity Initiatives and will provide support to NCOA’s Reverse Mortgage Counseling Services Network, one of five national counseling groups approved by the U.S. Department of Housing & Urban Development (HUD).
“NCOA is excited to have Maggie join our staff,” said Stuart Spector, senior vice president. “Maggie will be essential in helping promote our new reverse mortgage counseling tools that are now a mandatory part of the HUD home equity protocol.”
Both the Financial Interview Tool and the Benefits Check Up were developed by NCOA and are part of the new HECM Counseling Protocol roll out in September.
Prior to joining NCOA, Halmo worked in Denver, Colorado as a buyer for hospitality properties. She has a Bachelor’s Degree in Politics and Government, with an International Relations emphasis from the University of Puget Sound in Tacoma, WA.
