Fine. The reverse mortgage (or legal equity stealing) is the panacea that will save the seniors from freezing.
Do you have devine intervention for seniors who have never been fortunate enough to own their own home?
Do some research on a reverse mortgage. It's a desperate one time fix. I don't want to generalize but statistically, those who resort to a reverse mortgage are in financial difficulty again within 18 months. It's selling an asset that you've worked years for at well under market value.

Is this generation too soft to warrant another program
similar to what occured in 1976, whereby the Greatest
Generation that ever lived, came to the forefront and
complied with a program called "Car Pooling" among
other .
We brought gasoline usage down and rather quickly. Mo
over those living in metropolitan areas saw an unusual
phenomenon , the freeways here in L.A. opened up a
bit, during commute hours.
If Jimmy Carter opened his mouth to encourage these
simple tactics, way back then ( 1976 ) what is wrong
with our current leaders doing the same now.
If the USA can reduce its usage, perhaps India and
China will follow suit..........the "monkey see, monkey do
concept.

Um, that's my 401k, and probably yours and half the people here that you are talking about.

Not using asset you built for retirement is stupid. Why die sitting on an untouched fortune?

Man do you have tunnel vision! You are giving away a portion of that asset to the bank with a reverse mortgage. It's crap - good for the bank, not the consumer.

Of course, but you are getting cash in return.
