Housing Wealth Manifesto/ Forbes http://www.forbes.com/sites/jamiehopkins/2015/10/07/correctly-using-reverse-mortgages-can-be-a-retirees-saving-grace/
Jamie Hopkins is a contributing editor to Forbes Magazine and his recent article points out the need for seniors to consider using reverse mortgages in their retirement planning.
The lack of focus on home equity in retirement income planning is nothing short of a complete failure to properly plan and utilize all available retirement assets. This needs to change immediately because strategic uses of home equity, especially reverse mortgages, could save many people from financial failure in retirement and help stem the overall retirement income crisis facing Americans.
