Yes! Credit Matters: How Refinancing is Good for Retirement
In retirement, every penny counts. If you’re a homeowner, the equity in your home can act as an income stream to help you meet monthly obligations, reduce expenses, or even create an instant cash flow. Whether you’re retired or just planning for it, refinancing your home can be a smart financial move. Basically, it allows you to pay off your current mortgage and replace it with a new mortgage that has better terms—which means you pay less and save more.

These days, plenty of people are using Reverse Mortgages to stretch their dollars during retirement. Instead of receiving a lump sum up front, then making loan payments each month, seniors who qualify for a Reverse Mortgage actually receive payments each month. This is a smart solution for seniors living on a fixed income whose homes are close to being paid off. To see if a Reverse Mortgage is right for you, talk to your mortgage lender.
