About this course:

In a time when lifetime income sources such as pensions and Social Security benefits are declining, accessing home equity will become more important as people live longer and face increasing health care costs.


Reverse mortgages offer a mechanism for tapping home equity for retirees to address these needs and stay in their home. Because of key changes made to reverse mortgages by the Federal Housing Administration to the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program, the safety and functionality of accessing home equity now goes beyond supplementing retirement income.


Reverse Mortgage Strategies for the Middle Market - Shelley GiordanoIn this one-hour session, you will learn that:

  1. Evidence is mounting that the strategic use of housing wealth to offset volatility in the portfolio should be a prime consideration early in the distribution phase;

  2. Establishing a line of credit that is keeping pace with inflation can provide the funds for a long term care event, the effects of which fall so heavily on women;

  3. In divorce, a reverse mortgage strategy can prevent selling the marital home and provide the means for equitable housing for both parties;

  4. For women in particular, having access to reverse mortgage financing can bridge the income gap for social security deferral.
