Funding Longevity Task Force Takes On New Identity, Adds HECM Expert
With its original goals complete, the Funding Longevity Task Force has now taken on a new identity as the Academy of Home Equity in Financial Planning. The company also added a retirement expert who previously worked with the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in the Home Equity Conversion Mortgage program.
“All along, we have been fortunate to attract a broad range of experts in the field of aging. We are proud to announce that Karin Hill, former Senior Policy Advisor, Office of Single Family Housing at [HUD], [has] agreed to join our group,” according to Shelley Giordano, co-founder of the Funding Longevity Task Force, according to Reverse Mortgage Daily.
"The next steps in studying home equity in financial planning will be handed over to Dr. Craig Lemoine, director of the financial planning program and clinical associate professor at the University of Illinois, Giordano said."
The Academy is also partnering with One Reverse, Longbridge and Retirement Funding Solutions to conduct studies that will yield valuable information about monetizing the housing asset.
"The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) is thrilled to be the home of the Academy of Home Equity in Financial Planning," said Dr. Craig Lemoine, director of the financial planning program and clinical associate professor at the University of Illinois, according to RMD.
"The academy will continue the wonderful work of the Funding Longevity Task Force while adding elements of research and scholarship."
