mortgages work? >> reverse mortgages a home equity loan with a twist. this is for people more least 52 years old and they do not have to make payments as long as they live in their home. this allows them access their home equity over the years to reduce and retirement. >> they state that it may be too much in common that it will mess up their medicare or their social security. does the reverse mortgage interfere with that? >> it does not. it is not in come technically, it is a loan and you are barring from your home equity that you pay back. it is not taxable. if you do not claim it on your taxes. when you file your taxes--it is a perfect supplement for other kinds of income. >> i like it because it is selling your home without selling at. you can do it
with a reverse mortgage if you are 62 years old. it is the same concept. are there any restrictions? >> you can draw funds to pay off your existing mortgage up to the limit. you have a certain amount that is based for you based on your value of your home is your age. they have a new restriction on the amount of cash that you can take because they're are recent programs within this reverse mortgage that people have taken the full lump sum. s h eight insurance program and they are putting in more in a financial aspect to keep this money stretched out. >> people come to meet who are housed ridge, a cash poor and they're looking for financial planning trips i send them to someone like you and is governed first mortgage for poor people, needy people, or what the
people? >> it is 4 and needy people and there are lot of people or looking for some social security and that want to stay in their home. they have almost all their money in their home and this is a big part of the market. for people who have a retirement portfolios they really should look into this. it is tax-free money and if they can't take money from their home equity in conjunction with their investment this will lower their income-tax and make their retirement portfolio extent and last longer. it will have longevity. >> using this home, which needs to be on the table as far as an asset for retirement is very important. reverse mortgage
is a tool that allows you to do that. >> if you are over 62 years old and you have a house. you want to give your kids more of an inheritance. consider a recourse mortgage because you can draw more from home instead of your 401k. this set things up wisely. give me an example. >> one thing is that you can delay your social security payments until you are 70 years so. that increase pitcher payments until about 35%. and another thing the lot of people are holding mortgages when there in retirement and it just doesn't make sense to pull money from your investment to make a mortgage payment. the reverse mortgage can pay off your existing mortgage and get rid of your payments. you can have a more balanced retirement. another thing is the thought of having the need to need a
long-term care. people want to stay in their home and a lot of times the long-term care insurance is costly or prohibited. >> the reverse mortgage offers you a line of credit that grows. it increases the based on the interest rate. you have this growth and over the years this can be substantial. if you have this nest egg that she can use for long-term care if you need it. if you end up not needed, is just simply your equity and could go on a great vacation. >> when someone called to talk about reverse mortgages were just a conversation go? >> first of all i ask them questions about what they what their needs. their thoughts about equity. at lot of people have this feeling that they do not want to use their home equity because they want to give it to their kids. really, kids usually want their parents to do the best
they did not want them to have to sacrifice for that. we really need to find out what their needs are and maybe they just want to downsize or moved upon the is more suitable. i just want to talk with people to see what is best. >> you can find her online at maggieoconnell.com >> next we will talk about financial planning and your e-mail's coming up.
