Retirement Interest Only (RIO) mortgage is targeted at borrowers aged 55 and over who are either still working or have already retired. 

The RIO mortgage simply re-enables borrowers to take an interest only mortgage, beyond retirement. 
RIOs have no defined term and will run until repaid from the sale of the property, death of the borrower, or the point at which they move into long-term care.
