It is well-documented that most people reaching retirement age have savings (whether in a 401(k) account or otherwise) that are inadequate to meet their consumption needs during retirement.
Recent research has shown that integrating home equity with retirement savings provides a strong enhancement of the amount available throughout retirement.
The enhancement is obtained by the use of a simple “coordinated” strategy, which involves a reverse mortgage credit line to offset adverse investment returns in the savings portfolio.
In this one-hour session, you will learn:
- What the conventional strategy (a passive strategy) is for the use of home equity to enhance retirement income;
- What the “coordinated” strategy (an active strategy) is for the use of home equity to enhance retirement income;
- How to perform a simple estimate to determine the amount of inflation-adjusted cash flow a retiree can reasonably expect throughout a 30-year retirement.
