Class will initially focus on a broader overview of the program including:

1. A brief history of both FHA and proprietary products
2. Understanding product misconceptions
3. Review of consumer and family safeguards, including what happens at the end of the loan term. 

We will then narrow the focus and examine how a reverse mortgage can be used to reduce the risk of retirement portfolio exhaustion, based on our recent white paper. 

  • Address client concerns about program misconceptions
  • Be proficient about consumer safeguards and protections
  • Understand a specific strategy for reducing the risk of portfolio exhaustion by including a reverse mortgage in the distribution planning
