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.
Presenters on the webinar included:
Cäzilia Loibl, Professor Emeritus, University of Missouri – St. Louis; Research Professor, Washington University in St. Louis
Roslyn A. Quarto, Executive Director, ESOP, Vice President of Advocacy, Benjamin Rose Institute on Aging
Sonya Edwards, Director of Financial Counseling, ESOP
