Using Housing Wealth and Qualified Retirement Benefits to Facilitate Asset Division in Silver Divorce - Barry Sacks
Authorize.Net

Silver Divorce (where one or both parties are over age 55) is on the rise.

Key issues of Silver Divorce are the division of assets, providing adequate retirement income for each (i.e., cash flow), and dividing the value of the primary residence for both to live as accustomed.

Housing wealth, accessed by means of a reverse mortgage loan, can facilitate the division of assets in Silver Divorce and minimize cash outflow, leaving adequate cash available for other living expenses. It is important for financial advisors to understand how reverse mortgages can be used both in the division of the assets and in the structuring of retirement income to provide improvements in the divorcing parties’ standards of living.

In "Using Housing Wealth and Qualified Retirement Benefits to Facilitate Asset Division in Silver Divorce" by Barry Sacks, you will:

  1. Learn how reverse mortgages can provide the means to enable the parties in a Silver Divorce to each have a home that is fully paid for, thus imposing no debt service cost in their cash outflow;
  2. Learn how a reverse mortgage credit line can serve as a “buffer asset” to augment and sustain retirement income, especially when retirement savings invested in securities portfolios can incur the volatility inherent in such portfolios;
  3. Better understand the way reverse mortgages work as a financial tool for several different uses and review some widely held misunderstandings.

Retirement planning thought leadership and expertise

Barry and his brother, Stephen Sacks, Ph.D. shared their analysis of the reverse mortgage credit line in the February, 2012 Journal of Financial Planning. They revealed that if a reverse mortgage credit line was drawn on before drawing on investments when values had declined, a retiree’s residual net worth (portfolio plus home equity) after 30 years is about twice as likely to be greater than using home equity as a last resort. Evensky, Salter and Pfieffer then published their paper in the Journal of Financial Planning the following year on how to increase the sustainable withdrawal rate using the reverse mortgage line of credit.
