Adding Housing Wealth to a Retirement Plan


Retirement planning has traditionally excluded housing wealth, however, for many of our clients this can represent 50% or more of their net worth. And with higher inflation rates and volatile investment markets, more advisors are now taking a fresh look at reverse mortgages. With income-tax free proceeds, and no required monthly payment*, the reverse mortgage can be an effective option to incorporate housing wealth into an income bucket or other retirement planning strategy. In this presentation, Steve Resch, a practicing financial advisor, will do a brief overview of how the program works, and then share case studies of using it to manage household cash flow by eliminating an existing mortgage payment, supplementing an asset distribution strategy, or providing gap-funding to delay social security or other pension distributions. We will also look at how a reverse mortgage can be a safety net for long-term care risks, to pay the taxes on Roth Conversions, and provide capital for gifting or other legacy objectives. This class is eligible for 1 CFP CE credit.

For Reverse Loans: When the loan is due and payable, some or all of the equity in the property that is the subject of the reverse mortgage no longer belongs
to borrowers, who may need to sell the home or otherwise repay the loan with interest from other proceeds. The lender may charge an origination fee,
mortgage insurance premium, closing costs and servicing fees (added to the balance of the loan). The balance of the loan grows over time and the lender
charges interest on the balance. Borrowers are responsible for paying property taxes, homeowner s insurance, maintenance, and related taxes (which may
be substantial). We do not establish an escrow account for disbursements of these payments. A set-aside account can be set up to pay taxes and insurance
and may be required in some cases. Borrowers must occupy home as their primary residence and pay for ongoing maintenance; otherwise the loan
becomes due and payable. The loan also becomes due and payable (and the property may be subject to a tax lien, other encumbrance, or foreclosure) when
the last borrower, or eligible non-borrowing surviving spouse, dies, sells the home, permanently moves out, defaults on taxes, insurance payments, or
maintenance, or does not otherwise comply with the loan terms. Interest is not tax-deductible until the loan is partially or fully repaid.
