There is a high probability that you can maintain your lifestyle and accomplish your goals without the risk of a reverse mortgage. However, if a need does arise and extra funds are needed, we can revisit this topic and see if it is necessary.

Resulting Probability to meet goals
If you choose to follow our recommendations, you will increase your probability of success from 33% to 84% which is within the Confidence Zone. Your probability of success is discussed in detail in the Investment section of this plan.
