In episode 30 of Mind Your Own Retirement, Deeksie and Kaye are joined by Josh Funder from Household Capital. He says that the banks have ‘abandoned retirees’, and explains the importance of ageing at home, how reverse mortgages work, and the unique challenges faced by this generation of retirees.
He then explains to Deeksie and Kaye how Household Capital can help to double your super at retirement, allowing retirees to draw upon the value of their family home without sacrificing their super or Centrelink.
