Abstract

The strategy of delaying Social Security payments by taking out a reverse mortgage has attracted controversy in recent months, and a new report from MarketWatch finds that the answer is far from straightforward.

Columnist Mark Hulbert talked to Jamie Hopkins, a professor at the American College of Financial Services in Bryn Mawr, Pa. and a frequent proponent of novel reverse mortgage strategies, to figure out if the Social Security delay is worth it.
