Homeowners aged 62 and older currently hold a record $8.05 trillion in home equity. This age group holds 1/3 of the country’s housing wealth and yet nearly 37% of retirees are worried about their financial security in retirement.

Unfortunately, most homeowners 60 and older* don’t realize that a reverse mortgage can help them monetize their home equity and take control of their finances while limiting the impact of market volatility – allowing them to access income-tax-free† cash to help fund their retirement needs and goals.

Attendees will learn:

  • What improvements have been made and what consumer safeguards have been added to reverse mortgages in recent years
  • The four common reverse mortgage strategies for increasing retirement stability
  • The different types of reverse mortgage loans, both federally-insured and proprietary, for real-life applications
  • How to demonstrate reverse mortgage solutions for eligible clients

 Please Note: One CE credit will be provided for CFP, RICP, CLU, ChFC, and CFFP/Kaplan designations.
