Kick Off the New Year with Solid Financial Resolutions! Is a Reverse Mortgage on Your List?
As 2022 nears, you may be contemplating your resolutions and new goals for the year ahead. In fact, 65% of American adults are considering a financial goal for the new year.
If you’re striving to improve your financial health, here are some tips to set yourself up for a comfortable financial future.
Budget, budget, budget. Your financial health for the year rests largely on following a sensible budget. You should already have an estimate of how much you need each month to pay your bills and living expenses. But how can you better allocate your funds to erase your credit card debt or make the home renovations you’ve been putting off?
Be strategic with your credit cards. Use a rewards card with 0% APR for balances you plan to carry month over month. Or, when headed to gas station, make sure you’re charging the payment on a card that gives you cash back for filling your tank. Being strategic can pay off big.
Build your emergency fund. More than half of Americans have less than three months’ worth of expenses in an emergency fund. Make it part of your budget to put away as much money as you can afford each month just for the unexpected. Establish automatic transfers to your savings, so you can set and forget it.
Make or update your will. What happens to your estate and your assets when you pass away? Your will is a critical tool to protect your family and to ensure your financial wishes are carried out. Make an appointment to sit down with a professional, so it’s one less worry for the rest of the year.
Consider a reverse mortgage loan. Available to homeowners age 55 or older*, this financial tool gives you access to your home equity as a lump-sum payment, a monthly payment or a line of credit that’s there when you need it**— all while still living in and owning your home.*** Best of all, you can use the money as you wish to pay off medical bills, finance home improvements, supplement your income or even take a vacation. Secure the funds you need to live your best life during retirement.
