Reverse Mortgage Borrowing and Life Satisfaction of Older Adults: A Webinar Presentation of Findings and Implications

The Center for Financial Security held a webinar on November 14, 2018, which explored findings from a new study that examines the relationship of reverse mortgage borrowing with older adults’ satisfaction with their financial situation, housing, health, and daily life/leisure as well as with life as a whole. Cäzilia Loibl, researcher from The Ohio State University, discussed the study objectives, methodology, findings, and implications. Discussants from ESOP (Empowering and Strengthening Ohio’s People), a subsidiary of the Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging, shared their practitioner perspectives on the broader subject of older adult financial security, housing, and the issues that face older adult populations in reaching financial well-being and overall life well-being.
