Ways to Use a Reverse Mortgage Loan

The proceeds from a reverse mortgage loan is versatile, and can be used for almost any number of purposes in retirement.

Here are some examples of how you can use funds from a reverse mortgage:

  • Cover daily living expenses.
  • Renovate home to improve safety for aging occupants.
  • Pay off existing mortgage to reduce monthly expenses.
  • Pay for health care until Medicare eligibility at age 65.
  • Maintain a line of credit for emergencies.
  • Pay for your child’s or grandchild’s education.
  • Buy and move into a more appropriate home.
  • Pay for long-term care services.
  • Pay for short-term recovery care or physical therapy after an accident.
  • Fill the gap caused by lower than expected investment returns.
  • Delay receiving Social Security benefits until 70.5 years old, when it gets maxed.
  • Eliminate credit card debt.

Because there’s basically no restriction on how you use the funds from a reverse mortgage loan, you should not feel limited to just the examples presented above.
