Whether boomers or zoomers, 60 is definitely the new 40. Canadian seniors, the fastest growing segment of the population, are more active than ever. They are spending their time travelling, volunteering, taking up new hobbies, or even embarking on new career paths. Many are retiring early by choice while others, as a result of the volatile economic climate, are retiring by circumstance. No matter how retirement comes about, today's 60-plus set needs more income to support the lifestyle they have become accustomed to during their working lives. They're not slowing down and, consequently, their income needs are not decreasing after retirement. That's where a reverse mortgage can help. With a reverse mortgage homeowners can use the equity in their home to improve cash flow and add wealth building potential to their retirement plans.
