Homeowner’s Insurance Premiums are Surging in These Five States
 by Shannon Hicks      

Excerpts from:

 American homeowners, especially older ones, are being crushed by record increases in homeowners insurance premiums.

Money.com reports these five states saw the largest increase in premiums from May 2021 to May 2023.

  1. Florida: 68% ($1,127 to $1,896)
  2. New Mexico: 47% ($855 to $1,255)
  3. Colorado: 46% ($1,390 to $2,031)
  4. Idaho: 46% ($552 to $804)
  5. Texas: 46% ($1,471 to $2,141)

The spike in premiums is attributed to a perfect storm of a spike in natural disasters, record insurance losses, and higher construction prices.


Natural disasters such as hurricanes have long-lasting impacts. For example, in the wake of Florida’s most destructive hurricanes, insurers began hiking homeowners insurance premiums. The same can be said for Colorado, Idaho, and California. In the wake of the disastrous and deadly Maui Fire island residents will soon face the same challenge.


As a result of the surging cost of premiums, many older homeowners without a mortgage on their home have chosen to forego homeowners insurance altogether. The Insurance Information Institute reports that 5% more homeowners have not purchased homeowners insurance than just two years ago.


Many homeowners are very likely house-rich but cash-poor. Even worse, their greatest source of wealth is now at risk of being wiped out. One disaster could push an older homeowner into complete financial ruin or possible homelessness.


Have you seen an increase in homeowners insurance policy premiums? A reverse mortgage could provide the means needed to purchase a policy and protect what’s likely your largest asset.


The homeowner wins by protecting their home. but most importantly, helps eliminate the risk of a homeowner losing their home to a disaster or fire.

What is  Elder abuse?

How big is the problem?

Elder abuse is a serious problem in the United States. The available information is an underestimate of the problem because the number of nonfatal injuries is limited to older adults who are treated in emergency departments. The information doesn’t include those treated by other providers or those that do not need or do not seek treatment. Additionally, many cases are not reported because elders are afraid or unable to tell police, friends, or family about the violence. Victims have to decide whether to tell someone they are being hurt or continue being abused by someone they depend upon or care for deeply.

Elder abuse is common. Abuse, including neglect and exploitation, is experienced by about 1 in 10 people aged 60 and older who live at home. From 2002 to 2016, more than 643,000 older adults were treated in the emergency department for nonfatal assaults and over 19,000 homicides occurred.

Some groups have higher rates of abuse than others. Compared with women, men had higher rates of both nonfatal assaults and homicides. The rate for nonfatal assaults increased more than 75% among men (2002–2016) and more than 35% among women (2007–2016). The estimated homicide rate for men increased 7% from 2010 to 2016. Compared to non-Hispanic Whites, non-Hispanic Black or African American persons, non-Hispanic American Indian/Alaskan Natives, and Hispanic or Latino persons have higher homicide rates (2002–2016).

Overall and firearm-specific older adult homicide rates increased between 2014 and 2017. Of the 6188 victims, 62% were male. The perpetrator was an intimate partner in 39% of firearm homicides and 12% of non-firearm homicides. Common contexts of firearm homicides were familial/intimate partner problems, robbery/burglary, argument, and illness-related (e.g. the homicide was perpetrated to end the suffering of an ill victim, both victim and perpetrator had an illness, or the perpetrator had a mental illness).

What are the consequences?

Elder abuse can have several physical and emotional effects on an older adult. Victims are fearful and anxious. They may have problems with trust and be wary of others. Many victims suffer physical injuries. Some are minor, like cuts, scratches, bruises, and welts. Others are more serious and can cause lasting disabilities. These include head injuries, broken bones, constant physical pain, and soreness. Physical injuries can also lead to premature death and make existing health problems worse.

How can we prevent elder abuse?

There are a number of factors that may increase or decrease the risk of perpetrating and/or experiencing elder abuse. To prevent elder abuse, we must understand and address the factors that put people at risk for or protect them from violence.

  1. Listen to older adults and their caregivers to understand their challenges and provide support.
  2. Report abuse or suspected abuse to local adult protective services, long-term care ombudsman, or the police. Use the National Center on Elder Abuse Listing of State Elder Abuse Hotlinesexternal icon to find your state’s reporting numbers, government agencies, state laws, and other resources.
  3. Educate oneself and others about how to recognize and report elder abuse.
  4. Learn how the signs of elder abuse differ from the normal aging process.
  5. Check-in on older adults who may have few friends and family members.
  6. Provide over-burdened caregivers with support such as help from friends, family, or local relief care groups; adult day care programs; counseling; outlets intended to promote emotional well-being.
  7. Encourage and assist persons (either caregivers or older adults) having problems with drug or alcohol abuse in getting help.

The older adult population is growing faster in the U.S. than are younger populations. Many older adults require care and are vulnerable to violence perpetrated by a caregiver or someone they trust. More research is needed to uncover the causes for, and solutions to, violence against older adults.

12 Retirement Questions Financial Advisors Hear Most Often

By Rudri Bhatt Patel  Published Fri, Mar 3 2023

 Figuring out if your finances are on track for retirement can be tricky. If you have retirement questions, you’re probably not alone. We asked financial advisors what questions about retirement finances their clients ask the most, and here’s what they said.

You may find multiple answers to a question you’ve been wondering about here. But even if you do, it’s important to remember that every financial situation is different. Many people may have the same question, but the answer will differ for each. These answers can help put you on the right track, but make sure you consult with a financial advisor of your own before making any major financial decisions.

1. Does My Mortgage Need to Be Paid off Before I Retire?

Looking at a person’s financial plan will determine the best course of action for their mortgage, says Austin L. Nold, CEO of the Austin, Texas-based financial planning investment firm Nold Bryant. Paying off the mortgage, sometimes, isn’t the best option, says Nold, “a large withdrawal could cause unnecessary taxes or an unnecessary drawdown on assets.”

If a client’s plan looks great either way, he thinks it comes down to personal choice. So, he shows them the short-and-long-term financial impact. “One consideration people need to have in the current inflationary environment is that with rapidly rising interest rates. Sometimes there may be safe options to get higher returns than their mortgage, and they may not be able to borrow money again at that low a rate anytime soon.”

2. When Should I Draw Social Security?

Retirees may collect Social Security as early as 62. But some may want to defer payments until later. Brendon Dunuwila, a financial advisor of the Fayetteville, New York firm Dunuwila Wealth Management, says the latest an individual can defer Social Security payments is age 70. There is an advantage to this strategy.

“The longer you wait to elect, the larger your check will be. While most Americans elect to take their Social Security early, most financial advisors would encourage an individual to wait until age 70 if financially possible,” Dunuwila says.

3. How Should I Change my Investments When I Enter Retirement?

Many clients feel overwhelmed when they need to start using these nest eggs, says David Edmisten, a Phoenix, Arizona, certified planner and founder of Next Phase Financial Planning.

“With the different types of accounts many retirees have, there’s potential for penalties and higher taxes for incorrect withdrawals,” he says.

It can be difficult for new retirees to know how to shift investments to create a reliable retirement income. So Edmisten says to put a structure in place that dictates appropriate amounts of cash, income investments, and longer-term growth assets.

“This can give them the confidence to spend as they need in retirement without worrying about current market conditions,” Edmisten says. It’s important to understand all aspects of a financial plan to make withdrawals and investment decisions as tax-efficient as possible, he adds.

4. Is There Anything I Can Do to Save Money on Taxes?

Nold finds many people don’t take advantage of all the tax savings opportunities that different investment options may provide. For example, a business owner who doesn’t consider a retirement plan or a SEP IRA is missing out on an important tax-saving vehicle. Another example is someone who could benefit by contributing to a Roth IRA via a back-door Roth contribution but doesn’t. He thinks “people often underestimate the long-term tax savings of making small changes during their working years.” He also observes that people make investments that aren’t tax efficient, for instance, some mutual funds that may be subject to high capital gains.

5. Can I Retire Today?

The universal answer to this question is that it depends. Boris Castillo, a San Diego, California, financial advisor for Cuso Financial Services, says to ask yourself how much passive income you would need to walk away from your work today. 

To determine that amount, he recommends totaling your monthly expenses. Remove expenses that will eventually sunset out, like a mortgage or a car loan. Then look at them with the following metrics: 

  • Net out all the expenses against your expected passive income (e.g., Social Security, pension, alimony, etc.). See if there is a shortfall. 
  • Look at your savings (401k’s, IRA’s, savings accounts, CDs). Calculate what 4% of that total will be in today’s dollars. 
  • If the 4% figure from your combined savings accounts covers the shortfall for a year, you’re on the right track. 
  • If it doesn’t work, measure the time left on the expenses that will eventually sunset. If it’s less than five years, you may still be able to accelerate retirement. 
  • Remember that the two greatest expenses in retirement are housing and health care. While you can control housing costs, the same can never be said about health care. 


6. Will I Run Out of Money During Retirement?

To answer this question, Chicago-based financial advisor and founder of SIS Financial Group, Cynthia Pruemm, asks clients to note what is important to them in retirement. The range of objectives varies from “whether they want to leave a legacy, or do they want to contribute to their grandchildren’s 529 college plan,” she says.

Another concern she hears is that cognitive issues may run in their family. These people are concerned about long-term care or want to retire before they become eligible for Medicare. “Whatever their concerns are, we complete a retirement analysis and offer them solutions to the gaps in their plan,” Pruemm says.

7. Should I Be Worried About Market Volatility?

The short answer is no. Nayan Ranchod, a Scottsdale, Arizona, financial planner with Silver Lining Wealth Advisors, says people should not worry about market volatility, especially if their portfolio is based on financial planning that reflects their long-term goals. A carefully thought-out portfolio already takes into consideration the fluctuations of the market.

“A market downturn is the time to reassess what’s really important in your life and adjust the portfolio and expenses accordingly to make sure we use this as an opportunity for the next growth cycle,” Ranchod says. In his opinion, you can use the market to set clear future goals. 

8. Is My Money Safe?

“As a fiduciary, an advisor can only give assurances that your interests go ahead of any other entities (other than the law),” says Castillo. However, he cautions that this says nothing about the investment strategy itself. For example, in the last few years, “many have taken risks in their portfolios that they ideally wouldn’t take. The economic environment almost dictated this since the US experienced historically low-interest rates persistently. There was little yield to be had anywhere else but in equities,” Castillo says.

With the recent shift in interest rates and asset valuations, many are finding out the hard way that they took on more risk than anticipated. “This is why we always run scenario analysis on any investment strategy. Knowing how far or fast an investment’s returns can change can benefit an investor since it can manage their expectations. But always keep in mind that the advisor doesn’t control the markets,” adds Castillo.

9. Is My Portfolio on Track to Meet My Retirement Goals?

It can be easy to look at a portfolio as a snapshot, but in reality, they change with the market. Retirees need to focus on an overall financial strategy instead of reacting to the fluctuations in the market, says Jennifer Lee, a financial advisor in Sarasota, Florida, and founder of the advisory firm, Modern Wealth. Lee believes people have been conditioned to think that everything will bounce back immediately. But that isn’t necessarily the case. Clients need to be clear on their ability to tolerate risk and to stay the course when things get bumpy.

“Review your timeline to retirement or a particular goal, and ask, ‘Can I sustain the type of investments I have?’ and ‘Is my portfolio positioned to provide me with adequate income in retirement?’ In a down market, we do not want to have to be reactive and reassess risk.” says Lee. 

10. How Should I Prepare for the Possibility of Going Into a Nursing Home?

Most financial advisors think retirees should give advance thought to long-term care. Waiting may mean settling on an option that isn’t ideal. “This is a more complicated question as, for some clients, it can make sense to self-fund for this risk. For others, it is better to work closely with an estate planning attorney to discuss asset protection and Medicaid options,” Dunuwila says.

11. Why Do I Need You? Shouldn’t I Just Buy an Index Fund?

Castillo believes an index fund is a nice vehicle for low-cost market exposure. “However, it doesn’t ask the most fundamental question any investor should ask themselves: ‘How much risk do I really need?’ Without a financial plan, most investors are flying blind and following the crowd, leading them to make all types of mistakes. Your financial situation is as unique as your fingerprint: many look similar, but no two are identical. The most efficient method is taking on the appropriate risk that fits your overall goals and financial situation. An index fund may result in too much risk, or, in some cases, not enough,” Castillo says.

12. How Much Will This Cost Me, and What Are Your Fees?

Financial advisors don’t have a standard cost or fee, but the key is to ask this question early in the process. “Every investment strategy will have its costs or fees. Some advisors charge flat rates for advice, some a percentage of assets under management, or some traditional commissions,” Castillo says. He believes that an investor needs to determine what approach is the most appealing to them.

“Pragmatically, the most efficient method to begin the investment journey (since longevity and discipline are the keys to the most rewarding outcomes of most investment strategies) is to know yourself, know how you’re most comfortable dealing with a professional. The markets will give you enough opportunities to second-guess any strategy over time, so why compound the uncertainty by utilizing an approach you’re not comfortable with?” Castillo says.

Everything You Need to Know About Inheriting a House

   Miranda Marquit



Inheriting a house can offer a variety of choices in making use of a valuable asset. For example, you can sell the home and collect the resulting cash as a windfall, use the property for rental income, or live in the house and potentially reduce your overall living costs.

As you decide what to do with an inherited home, there are a few things to consider. Here’s what you need to know.

The Basics of Inheriting a House

Laws are different in each state, but, in general, if you inherit a home, you will need to go through some type of legal process. The executor of the will needs to be consulted, and there might be probate issues to resolve.

if you inherit a house, it won’t actually be yours until all the legal formalities are complete and your name is on the title. 

Some of the issues the executor and probate will address include:

  • Co-inheritors. Co-inheritors can impact your options, including who gets to live in the home, whether to sell the home and split the proceeds, or whether one can buy the others out.
  • Liens and other claims against the property. In some cases, there might be tax liens or other claims against the home. Those need to be satisfied before claiming true ownership of the home.
  • Maintenance and repairs. The condition of the home and what that condition means for the home’s value.

Consider speaking with an estate planning specialist or other professional to help you navigate the situation and review your options. You may also need to consider a mediator if you have co-inheritors who disagree with you about the best way to handle the situation.

Things to Consider

Once you’ve established your right to the home and have your name on the title, you can start trying to figure out what to do next. You’ll need to consider the impact of owning this home on your personal finances. Considerations you’ll need to make include:

  • Weighing costs. If the house has significant maintenance needs, do they outweigh the value of the property?
  • Tax Implications. Depending on the size of the estate and where you live, you might be subject to an estate tax or inheritance tax. Additionally, if you inherit the home and keep it, you’ll be liable for any related property taxes. Finally, if you decide to sell, you might be subject to capital gains taxes. However, those are usually figured on a stepped-up basis, meaning you only pay capital gains taxes on the appreciation since the death of the owner.

Options for the Inherited House

Regarding what you’ll do with the property, you have three options:

  • Live in the home. Use the home as your primary residence or vacation home. If there are still mortgage payments, you might need to assume them. Additionally, don’t forget to factor in maintenance, repairs, insurance, property taxes, and other potential ongoing costs.
  • Rent the home out. Turn the home into a long-term rental or an Airbnb. Either way, if you rent out the home, you have the chance for ongoing income. Just be aware of what could happen later when you sell the property (including capital gains tax when you inherit a home and sell it later). Additionally, if you keep the home, even for income purposes, there might still be federal estate taxes and other costs to pay.
  • Sell the home. Finally, if you simply want to liquidate the asset and receive the money, you can sell the home. You might need a real estate agent to help you, and there might be other costs. However, once you sell the home, you can use the proceeds to handle any taxes you might have.

If you have a family member as a co-inheritor, you might also need to make other decisions. Perhaps they want to move in, and you need to make an arrangement. The easiest solution is to sell the home and split the net proceeds (after taxes and other costs have been paid). However, if you want to keep the home and don’t want other co-inheritors involved, you might need to buy them out.

Bottom Line

Inheriting a house can be a way to improve your finances and make the most of your money. However, before you decide to accept the inheritance, or decide what to do with the house, make sure you consider your situation and needs to make a choice that makes sense for you financially.

When this Article was written back in 2021, inflation had not reached the 11% average that it was in May 2022, Gas Prices were not in the $4.95-$10.00/gal range, groceries were not as high as they are today, and interest rates had not risen to the 5% range they are today (and the Fed announced 2 to 4 more increases this year). If you are in a fixed income, this situation is really harming you. If you are a Senior it is even worse. I call it "The Senior Silent Killer",

My Social Security Benefits went up 6.5% in January 2022 thanks to the COLA, My Medicare Premium went up 14.5%. So if inflation is an average of 8.5% and increasing, how can anyone make ends meet???

Senior Homeowners with at least 50% Equity in their homes can apply for a Reverse Mortgage and eliminate Monthly P&I Mortgage Payments and even get Tax Free Cash to help them out.

Don't wait until it is too late. You deserve to live the remaining time of your Life without financial worries!!!

Inflation, The Silent Killer!

by Robert Intelisano  August 3, 2021


The Google definition of inflation is: “A general increase in prices and fall in the purchasing value of money over time.  Inflation can occur when prices rise due to increases in production costs, such as raw materials and wages.  A surge in demand for products and services can cause inflation as consumers are willing to pay more for the product.”

An example of inflation is the cost to cross the Marine Parkway-Gil Hodges Memorial Bridge.  When the bridge opened on July 3rd, 1937, the cost to cross the bridge was between 10-15 cents, depending on the type of vehicle.  The current cost is $5.09 by mail and $2.45 by E-Z Pass.

The Federal Reserve wants to keep inflation under the 2% benchmark.  Right now, inflation is running around 3% which is in the danger zone.  As per Barron’s, the FOMC (Federal Open Market Committee) released minutes from its June monetary policy meeting.  Fed officials signaled that interest rates would rise sooner and faster than Wall Street expected prior to the meeting, as inflation is rising at its fastest pace since 2008.

What does this all mean?  This means that if you are on a fixed income, your money will not go as far as it would during inflationary times.  This also means, if you have investments and/or money in the bank that is “netting after-tax” less than 3%, you are losing money (purchasing power).  These are important barometers that few people are paying attention to right now.

People have been cooped up (myself included) during the height of Covid-19 and many persons now have more spendable income.   A combination of inflation, the Suez Canal blockage, and higher demand for travel has skyrocketed travel costs in the past month.  Hotel costs in Miami Beach have risen 50% since the last week in June.  Rental cars are up 110% this year and are 70% higher since the pre-pandemic in 2019.  Oil prices could soon hit $100/barrel, which will also spike gas prices.

There are options where one can position assets to fight inflation or at least break even, as interest rates are likely to rise over the next 12-18 months.

Now is the time to have a short conversation about inflation. How is it impacting them? Does it change their retirement plans? What financial concerns do they have as a result? Inflation is not a selling point, but it’s certainly a reality. One where a reverse mortgage could potentially help.

'Spring Fever Will Benefit Senior Homeowners

by Shannon Hicks

Spring Fever: Seniors will see their home prices climb this spring

The continued surge in housing prices has confounded economists, housing experts, and investors alike. Many believed that the end of mortgage forbearances or the sudden closure of Zillow’s iBuyer program was an omen of an impending crash in housing values. Next was the expectation that interest rate hikes by the Federal Reserve would at least cool the market. However, today home values continue to appreciate even after the Fed announced a series of interest rate hikes in the effort to stem inflation.

With home prices rising six times as fast as personal income it becomes clear that…

today’s housing market is both artificial and unsustainable. While the frenzy will eventually subside it won’t stop this spring which marks the height of the homebuying season. 

Today homeowners are equity-rich thanks to a massive shortage of housing inventory and asset inflation as a result of the Fed’s endless money printing and near-zero interest rates. Yet there’s one group of homeowners stand to reap the rewards if they choose to secure a portion of their home’s new-found ‘equity’; Seniors.

Even if the central bank increased rates during each of its meetings this year, it’s unlikely that the resulting change in the 10-year Constant Maturity Treasury (CMT) swap rate would disqualify most thanks to the run-up in home values. Today the 10-year CMT stands at 2.0% which nearly mirrors the index’s rate in December 2019 before the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic. 

However, should the Fed be forced to take more drastic measures to curb inflation, rate increases could escalate sufficiently to offset the recent gains in home prices with higher expected interest rates lessening available loan proceeds for reverse mortgage applicants. 

Don’t sneeze as spring fever maintains today’s absurd home prices. Just like any season, this too will eventually pass, and with that passing the waning of a unique opportunity for older homeowners seeking to stop making mortgage payments.

Recently  I posted  an article on the effects of the high inflation rates that we are all suffering on the Reverse Mortgage Rates and how it would lower the Funds that You Would Receive!!!  
(see article below this one)


This new article describes how inflation WILL lower the effect of the funds you receive from Social Security regardless of the COLA increase.

The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College

 By Alicia H. Munnell and Patrick Hubbard*


This fall, the U.S. Social Security Administration is likely to announce that benefits will be increased by around 6 percent beginning January 1, 2022. This cost-of-living-adjustment (COLA), which would be the largest in 40 years, is an important reminder that keeping pace with inflation is one of the attributes that makes Social Security benefits such a unique source of retirement income.

 A spurt in inflation, however, affects two other factors that determine the net amount that retirees receive from Social Security. The first is the Medicare premiums for Part B, which are deducted automatically from Social Security benefits. To the extent that premiums rise faster than the COLA, the net benefit will not keep pace with inflation. The second issue pertains to taxation under the personal income tax. Because taxes are levied on Social Security benefits only for households with income above certain thresholds ($25,000 for single taxpayers and $32,000 for joint returns) and the thresholds are not adjusted for wage growth or inflation, rising benefit levels subject more benefits to taxation – again reducing the net benefit… Continued:

We’ve all heard that "laughter is the best medicine." 

But who took it seriously?

 All kidding aside, IS laughter really the best medicine? Could a daily dose of "ho ho ho" heal what’s wrong, or is it just a sick joke?

The health benefits of laughter have been praised since biblical times, with proverbs like, "A cheerful heart is good medicine." Shakespeare wrote years later, "Merriment bars a thousand harms and lengthens life."

And today, laughter therapy research and laughter yoga tend to agree.

Laughter has been found to boost your immune system, reduce pain, heal your heart, decrease stress and increase your feel-good hormones. But best of all, laughter is fun, free and has no negative side effects.

The Health Benefits of Laughter Therapy

More than likely, if you go to a doctor or a shrink for some ailment, they’re not going to write a prescription that includes a good belly laugh.

But "laughter therapy" is a new use-your-mind to heal-your-body approach that is growing rapidly in popularity. "And it’s as real as taking a drug," says Dr. Lee Berk, Professor of Medicine at Loma Linda University.

As Norman Cousins tells us in his book, Anatomy of an Illness (As Perceived by the Patient), when he was diagnosed with a terminal disease, he was unable to move, given little hope and in constant pain.

Cousins credited his recovery to a prescription for watching funny movies. With every 10 minutes of laughter, he got two hours of pain-free sleep.

Years later, using movies to rate the effectiveness of laughter therapy on cardiovascular health, Dr. Michael Miller from the University of Maryland School of Medicine discovered that laughter is great for your heart.

The American College of Cardiology presented his breakthrough research.

Dr. Miller's team measured the blood flow from healthy participants both before and after they watched two very different films: the graphic war movie, Saving Private Ryan and the hilarious comedy, Kingpin.

The blood flow differences were quite dramatic – a 35% DECREASE after the war movie and a 22% INCREASE for the comedy. Dr. Miller's conclusion? Laughter may be as good for your heart as exercise!

The Health Benefits of Laughter Yoga

The benefits of laughter yoga include all the benefits of laughter therapy, plus laughing yoga combines laughter with yoga breathing exercises.

Laughing yoga is a body-mind approach to laughter, which means you don't need to find a way to feel happy. You "fake it until you make it" and that fake laughter soon turns into the real thing with real benefits.

Here are the main health benefits of laughter therapy and laughter yoga:

  • Reduces pain
  • Adds joy to life
  • Relieves stress
  • Enhances mood
  • Relaxes muscles
  • Eases depression
  • Builds relationships
  • Improves blood flow
  • Attracts others to you
  • Strengthens immunity
  • Massages your muscles
  • Exercises your whole body
  • Releases feel-good hormones
  • Promotes cardiovascular health

Most hospitals today encourage patients to laugh. Many have TV comedy channels, comedy rooms and regular visits from clowns. As Groucho Marx said, "A clown is like an aspirin, only he works twice as fast."

Turn Your Frown :-( Upside Down :-) and Start Clowning Around ;o)

Studies show the perfect prescription for a long, happy life is to eat a healthy diet, exercise regularly and tune into the cosmic laugh-track.

So, do the benefits of laughter prove that laughter is the BEST medicine?

The answer is it doesn’t really matter. Because whether you use a laughter therapy mind-body approach or body-mind laughter yoga, if you want to feel good as often as possible, you’ll laugh every chance you get!

How Does a Reverse Mortgage Work?

By Rudri Bhatt Patel

Published Mon, Aug 30 2021

 Just the name “reverse mortgage” suggests that this type of mortgage works a little differently than more common mortgage types. Here’s what you need to know about how reverse mortgages work. 

What Is a Reverse Mortgage? 

A reverse mortgage is a loan that lets qualified homeowners tap equity without selling their home. Borrowers choose how they receive proceeds either as a lump sum, monthly payments, a line of credit, or a combination.  Read on to learn more about how reverse mortgages work.


Government backed reverse mortgages are called home equity conversion mortgages (HECM). Not all reverse mortgages are HECMs, but all HECMs are reverse mortgages. Individual lenders also offer proprietary reverse mortgages. The terms of these mortgages can vary depending on the lender. Proprietary reverse mortgages are not insured by the government.

Traditional vs. Reverse Mortgage Comparison 

With a traditional mortgage, borrowers take a specific amount of money to purchase a home. They make monthly payments with interest toward the loan balance for a predetermined term. Standard terms are 10, 15, or 30 years. Though they owe the lender a certain percentage of the home’s value, they fully own the home. The loan will be paid off by the end of the term, assuming the borrower makes all agreed-upon payments.  

Although you can purchase a home with a reverse mortgage, people more commonly use them to access equity in homes they own. Like with a traditional mortgage, the borrower always retains full ownership of the house. Instead of the paying the mortgage for the life of the loan, nothing is due until the loan comes to term. When the last borrower on the loan leaves or passes away, the loan comes due. 

How is a Cash-Out Refi Different from a Reverse Mortgage? 

Both cash-out refis and reverse mortgages allow borrowers to borrow against the equity they’ve built up in their homes. There are a few notable differences: 

  • Reverse mortgages are only available to borrowers 62 and older 
  • Cash-out refis offer a one-time cash-out payment, while reverse mortgages offer multiple payout options. 
  • Like a traditional mortgage, you immediately begin paying back a cash-out refi. Reverse mortgages only come due when the loan ends. 

Qualifying for a Reverse Mortgage 

To apply for a reverse mortgage, borrowers must certify that they have undergone reverse mortgage counseling through a Housing and Urban Development (HUD) approved agency. This counseling ensures that the borrower fully understands the terms of their mortgage and what they are agreeing to. 

In addition to the mandatory counseling, the basic requirements to qualify for a reverse mortgage are as follows: 

  • Borrowers must be 62 years or older for HECMs. Ages for proprietary reverse mortgages can vary. In some states, borrowers can take proprietary reverse mortgages at 55. 
  • Borrowers must be able to meet financial obligations. Although borrowers don’t make required monthly payments on their reverse mortgage, they are responsible for property taxes, home association dues, and insurance. Borrowers must also have the means to maintain the condition of the property at an acceptable standard. A financial assessment the lender conducts as a part of the application process will helps determine borrowers can meet these obligations. 
  • Borrowers must live in the home. A home must be a borrower’s primary or principal residence. That means they typically reside in the house for the majority of their time. Borrowers must certify annually that they still live in the home. 
  • Borrowers must have substantial equity in the home. There is not a set percentage of equity a borrower must have to qualify. Generally, lenders require 50% or more. 

?It’s not enough for a borrower to meet the qualifications of a reverse mortgage; the property must also be eligible. 

What Homes Are Eligible for a Reverse Mortgage?? 

Broadly, single-family homes are eligible for a reverse mortgage. The definition of a single-family home can cover a variety of structure types. According to the Federal Housing Administration (FHA), a single-family home is a stand-alone unit or one attached to a building. This definition includes: 

  • Manufactured homes and townhomes affixed to a foundation. 
  • Duplexes, triplexes, and fourplexes if the borrower lives in one of the units. 
  • FHA-approved condominiums. Borrowers can determine if they have an approved condo by checking the Housing and Urban Development (HUD) website.  

HUD considers buildings with more than five units commercial properties and they are not eligible for a reverse mortgage. 


Reverse mortgage borrowers must live in their mortgaged home. That means rental properties are not eligible for reverse mortgages. It is perfectly fine, however, for reverse mortgage borrowers to rent out rooms in their homes, or units on the same property (provided they are under four). Borrowers will still need to comply with their HOA rules regarding rentals.

What Are the Loan Terms of a Reverse Mortgage?? 

Because reverse mortgage borrowers don’t make required payments to their mortgage until the loan comes due, staying on good terms with a reverse mortgage is relatively simple.  

Borrowers can keep their loan in good standing by complying with the following terms:? 

  • Staying up to date and current on property taxes, homeowner’s insurance, and other home-related fees, such as HOA dues.? 
  • Living in the home?for the majority of the year. 
  • Maintaining the home and keeping up with necessary repairs?.

As part of complying with the terms of the mortgage, reverse mortgage borrowers must sign an affidavit annually to verify they still reside in the home. Every year, the loan servicer will send borrowers a home occupancy certificate to their primary residence. Borrowers must sign and send the certificate back within 30 days of receiving it.? 

If a borrower fails to comply with the terms of the reverse mortgage they risk default and the loan may come due and payable. Anyone struggling to meet the terms of their mortgage should communicate with their servicer early on. 

What Do Borrowers Pay With a Reverse Mortgage? 

During the life of the loan, a reverse mortgage requires very little cash out of pocket from the borrower. While reverse borrowers do not make required monthly mortgage payments, they do need to keep up with home repairs, home insurance, and property taxes. Income taxes aren’t levied on reverse mortgage loan proceeds because the IRS considers reverse mortgage payments loan proceeds, not income.   

Though there are no required monthly mortgage payments, borrowers can choose to pay down the balance as they see fit. 

When taking out the loan, borrowers must pay a counseling fee, as well as regular closing costs and fees, many of which borrowers can pay with loan proceeds. Interest and mortgage insurance premiums accrue on the loan balance monthly. The borrower does not need to make payments on them until the loan comes due, at which point the full amount of the loan plus accrued interest and mortgage insurance premiums must be paid. 

Natural Disasters and Other Unexpected Events 

Homeownership involves a number of risks that even the most conscientious homeowner can’t completely eliminate. If your home is located in a specific disaster-prone area, adequate insurance coverage is essential. As a reverse mortgage borrower, should your home be damaged or destroyed by fire, flood, or some other unforeseen event, your insurance coverage will be instrumental in rebuilding. It is also essential that you notify the loan servicer immediately. If you intend to rebuild or bring the house back to its previous state, you will stay in good terms with the reverse mortgage. 

How Much Money Can You Get from a Reverse Mortgage? 

Several factors determine how much money you can borrow through a reverse mortgage. Those factors include your age, the interest rate offered, the home’s value, and how much equity you have in the home. A reverse mortgage calculator will estimate how much money is available to borrow and your remaining equity. The borrower must supply their age, home value, and any current mortgage balance, if applicable.??? 

Borrowers can receive money as a lump sum, monthly payments, a line of credit, or a combination of all these options. The best course of action will depend on the individual financial situation and strategy. 

Payout Limitations

It is worth mentioning that all HECMs are subject to the 60% utilization rule. This limits the amount any reverse mortgage borrower can take in the first year to the higher of 60% of the principal limit or mandatory obligations like an existing mortgage plus 10% of the loan amount. The remainder of the available principal will be available to the borrower in the 13th month of the loan and come from an established line of credit.? 

Reverse Mortgage Interest Rates 

Reverse mortgages can have fixed or variable rates. Unlike traditional mortgages, for which borrowers often prefer a fixed rate, most reverse mortgages have a variable rate. Though fixed-rate reverse mortgages are available, they commonly do not allow the borrower to access as much equity as they can with a variable rate. Reverse mortgage borrowers who choose the fixed rate only have the option of taking a one-time cash payout. Because of the 60% utilization rule mentioned above, that payout will only be a fraction of what would be available with a variable rate that does not have a single payment restriction.  

The majority of reverse mortgage borrowers opt for the flexibility that the variable rate mortgage offers. Because the term of the loan is open-ended, borrowers do not know in advance how much interest will accrue on the loan over time (they do receive an amortization table that estimates accrued interest over the life of the loan). However, the flexibility in payment options, including a line of credit that offers increased borrowing power over time, as well as the availability of more equity, usually makes this type of interest structure more attractive. 

How Changing Life Circumstances Impact a Reverse Mortgage? 

It is not possible to remove or add a person to a reverse mortgage. In the cases of death, remarriage, or divorce, to add or remove a party, the remaining borrower will need to refinance the loan.  

Non-borrowing Spousal Protections

In a married couple in which one person is not included on the reverse mortgage, the spouse not on the mortgage is called a non-borrowing spouse. There are legal protections that help prevent eligible non-borrowing spouses from being removed from their homes in the event the borrower passes away or has to move into an assisted living facility. Though an eligible non-borrowing spouse may remain in the home, they no longer have access to remaining funds, including those set aside to pay taxes and insurance. 

Whether divorcing non-borrowing spouses remain in the home or leave is between the borrower and their attorney. The specifics of the divorce settlement may allow the non-borrowing spouse to be refinance in their name or any number of other arrangements. 

Selling or Refinancing With a Reverse Mortgage  

Selling a home with a reverse mortgage works very much like selling a home with a traditional mortgage. When the home is sold the proceeds from the home sale are applied to the reverse mortgage balance. The remaining money goes to the borrower or their heirs.? 

It is also possible to refinance a reverse mortgage. Generally, people choose to refinance a reverse mortgage if they want to add a new person to the mortgage, say in the case of marriage, or if the house has increased substantially in value and they would like to tap additional equity. 

What Happens at the End of a Reverse Mortgage? 

There are three ways for a reverse mortgage to come due: 

  • The borrower sells the house 
  •  The borrower violates the terms of the loan 
  • The last borrower on the loan passes away.  

 When the last borrower dies, heirs need to decide what to do. Heirs are not responsible for reverse mortgage debt. However, when the mortgage comes due, they do need to decide how they would like to resolve the debt. Options include the following:  

  • Sell the home. If the heirs want to repay the loan, they can use the proceeds from the sale of the house and apply this to the outstanding balance.?? 
  • Keep the home. The heirs can keep the house if they pay the mortgage balance or 95% of the property’s appraised value, whichever is less. Heirs can refinance the loan if they choose. If the heirs are over 62, a new reverse mortgage may be a possibility.?  
  • Sign over the title and complete a deed in lieu of foreclosure. The heirs can give the property to the lender by signing the home’s heading to the lender accompanied by an act. This act satisfies the debt and will prevent foreclosure of the house.?? 
  • Do nothing. If the heir chooses to do nothing with the loan, the lender will foreclose on the home.?While possible, this is not preferable or advantageous for the heir. Working with the servicer to complete the transfer in an official capacity should not be difficult.

Depending on your retirement strategy and goals, a reverse mortgage can help alleviate the stress in your golden years. A reverse mortgage isn’t complicated to understand, but it’s important to consult a financial advisor before making this or any important financial decision.

 Inflation Bad News
 Keep On Coming!!!

The Fed, last week, announced that they will INCREASE interest rates at least, THREE (3) times in 2022!!! 

The 1st one should come in March!!!

Inflation is between 7%+ and 9%+. Now add the Price of Gas which  will increase with suspension of oil imports from Russia now that war has started. Economists state that it will be a long time before Inflation goes down!!!


This will impact your daily life in many ways. The Price of Food at the Market, the price of Gas at the pump, the Price of Clothing on the store, etc... Especially hit will be Credit Card, Adjustable Rate Mortgages and Lines of Credit Payments.


Sales of homes will go down and so will appraised values.


For New Reverse Mortgage and FHA or Conventional Mortgages Borrowers it means that the appraised value of your home will be lower and proceeds (higher interest, less funds) will be lower too. So if you have been postponing doing it, don’t wait any longer,
