Use Your Home To Stay At Home

The National Council on Aging has recently promoted a solution to the long-term care problem for seniors: reverse mortgages. As part of its "Use Your Home to Stay at Home" program, the NCOA suggests that the 80% of home-owning seniors over age 62 think about mortgaging their homes through a reverse mortgage, which will provide them with cash in exchange for home equity. In this way, a reverse mortgage can assure home ownership while offering seniors a way to remain at home in their old age.

A reverse mortgage can also provide seniors with extra cash to fund expensive long-term care insurance purchases. In addition, in light of recent problems with Medicaid, a reverse mortgage can help to free seniors from worries about future medical cost coverage.

While some seniors may be concerned about the loss of equity that a reverse mortgage will entail, and while others may worry that a reverse mortgage will inhibit them from leaving their homes to their heirs, the NCOA recommends that seniors give reverse mortgages serious consideration. By consulting with a financial advisor, seniors might find that the benefits of a reverse mortgage far outweigh the costs.

We wanted to establish a bit of extra income. There was a good recommendation about on CNN. We also liked that we could see excellent reviews about them on Google. They were very thorough from our first inquiry to when we decided to buy our annuity from Mass Mutual. They always answered our questions promptly and followed up with the insurance company, too. We have been receiving our monthly payments since last November and couldn’t be happier. What more can we say?
