Can Self-Directed IRAs and reverse mortgage loans leave a lasting positive impact on investors’ retirements? That is the subject of an upcoming webinar hosted by American IRA in Asheville, NC. The webinar, scheduled for Thursday, August 2nd, addresses the use of the Federal Housing Administration’s Home Equity Conversion Mortgage (HECM) program.

According to American IRA, a reverse mortgage can be a viable option for some retirees. As even those with their own homes still have to pay taxes and insurance on the proper—in addition to maintenance—a reverse mortgage can help retirees with extra cash. The webinar at American IRA is expected to address whether certain investors may be ideal candidates for the HECM reverse mortgage loan program.

“Some people hear the phrase ‘reverse mortgage’ and they are ready to move on to the next topic,” said Jim Hitt, CEO of American IRA. “The goal of this webinar is to get people to see just how beneficial these options can be for people who might be in the right situation. In the webinar, we plan on addressing what that situation might be—and which types of people might be good candidates for this loan program.”

American IRA is a Self-Directed IRA administration firm out of Asheville, NC. Although primarily focused on Self-Directed IRAs, the company often releases webinars, blog articles, and guides about a wide range of topics relevant to investors. As a Self-Directed IRA administration firm, American IRA does not offer specific investment advice that is the role of a financial advisor.

“Webinars like these help us reach out to people and introduce them to ideas they might not have previously come across,” said Jim Hitt. “We do not tell people how to invest their money. But we do put out lots of information on Self-Directed IRAs. And reverse mortgage loans are a tool that many retirees should be aware of, particularly those who might struggle to find a justification for the taxes and maintenance on a large home in retirement.”

The webinar is scheduled to take place at 12 p.m. – 1 p.m. EST. Interested parties can register at
