Pierce County Community Connections Aging and Disability Resources is sponsoring “Reverse Mortgages: A Primer for Consumers” as part of the “Know it before you need it” series. The free workshop explains in clear, impartial terms the basic features of a Reverse Mortgage and how one can provide the means to stay in one’s home.

“Many people are apprehensive about getting a Reverse Mortgage,” said Aaron Van Valkenburg, manager of Aging and Disability Resources. “But they can be a prudent way for seniors to tap into a home’s value and provide the means to remain at home without sacrificing anything. When it comes to Reverse Mortgages, knowledge is everything.”

Presenting at the workshops will be Bob Riler, HUD-certified Reverse Mortgage counselor and staff at Community Connections; Rebecca Rainsberger of Genworth Financial and Edwin Hoffmann of Eagle Home Mortgage. This is an information-only event.
