008: Reverse Mortgages

June 27, 2018

What is a reverse mortgage? Is it right for me?

Saving enough for retirement can be a challenge.  As people continue to live longer, retirement savings are being stretched further over many more years. However, there is an option that is increasing in popularity – a reverse mortgage.
