The Paradox of Aging - Four Bucket Strategy

There is a lot of talk about aging, longevity, and the fear of running out of money.  There are people at every corner that will advise you to save more money and to prepare for illness, care needs, and ultimately unexpected longevity.  I personally don’t buy into saving an additional couple percent of your income, hiring the better advisor, or coming up with the ultimate annuity as the end all be all solution.   While these items may incrementally have significance over time as part of an overall plan, we should not lose sight of basic planning and wise decisions tha...

Retirees, Seniors and Controlling Debt in Retirement.

When people retire, they often go from receiving a pay check every two weeks to a fixed income.  Many may also have businesses that they have just sold.  Now with this comes freedom but with this new found freedom there is an expectation that the lifestyle that they are accustom to will continue.  This can be a wonderful experience as long as the available income and savings can support the new found freedom. Whether you are thinking about retirement or you have been retired for some time it is never too late to assess your monthly cash flow situation.   It is impor...

Reverse Mortgages Can Be A Retiree's Saving Grace - Forbes article

Nice article in Forbes providing specific applications for Reverse Mortgages.  HECM Reverse Mortgages are clearly an area that the public and the advisor community will need to pay more attention to if we are to collectively achieve retirement goals in the current climate.  I like the #4 suggested Reverse Mortgage application the best, given it is the most practical, most common scenario, and most effective means of establishing financial balance for my clients.  “#4 Reduce Retirement Expenses and Cash Outflow. “  Retirees and seniors need to focus on cash flow ...

A Borrower's story: The Peace of Mind and Financial Flexibility that comes with a Reverse Mortgage.

This is a classic Reverse Mortgage scenario that contradicts the general public perception that the primary use for a Reverse Mortgage equates to “funds of last resort”.Recently, I met with a client that was unmarried, in her early seventies, and employed with $300,000 plus in IRA assets.  She currently works two part time jobs, pays a monthly mortgage payment, and is struggling to get by each month balancing her income from social security, the two jobs, and monthly withdrawals from an IRA to make ends meet.  We decided to establish a government insured HECM Reverse...

HECM for Purchase - Buy a Home and get a Reverse Mortgage in one transaction

Achieve diversification, increased liquidity, and financial peace of mind by using a HECM for Purchase to buy a new primary residence. Instead of solely focusing on downsizing as we age why don’t we expand on this thought and make it a financial strategic transaction as well. Many people, as they retire, think that buying a home with all cash is the safest and possibly only answer. This may limit your ability to buy the home that is the best fit for you. It may be a better option to utilize a HECM for Purchase so you don’t have a large percentage of your cash tied...

Reverse Mortgage: A Cost-Effective Tool for Long Term Care Insurance.

How can we establish a cost effective mechanism for long term care insurance?  I have been told by several financial advisors that nobody wants to pay premiums for long term care insurance that they may never use.  Unless you set this up early, the premiums could be $300-500 per month. This may be a tough sell for an advisor but a necessity to avoid the potential annual six figure cost of unexpected elder care needs that could decimate a family’s retirement plan. It really comes down to looking after Mom & Dad.  Current statistics indicate that only one percent of p...
