A recent study done by the Employee Benefit Research Institute and independent research firm Greenwald & Associates, indicates that Americans are the most confident in their retirement future since the financial crisis of 2008.1
However, the study also shed light on the fact that many have not calculated how much they will need in terms of the actual dollar amount which is an important factor when planning one’s retirement1.
As the study shows, retirees are more confident about having enough money to live comfortably, but it is essential for those nearing retirement age to know how much money they will need once they leave the workforce.
Many people assume they will be able to continue to work once they reach retirement age, but in reality it’s not always an option.
As American’s grow closer to retirement and determine how much money they will need, a Home Equity Conversion Loan (HECM), or a reverse mortgage, may be able to help. A reverse mortgage can assist by supplementing income, eliminating the monthly mortgage payment and preserves savings as part of an overall plan to retirement.
