It’s something worth considering if you want to ensure you’re getting the best deal possible on your retirement plan.
The first thing you’ll want to do is figure out how much money will be available for your retirement. The math behind the numbers might seem intimidating but with a little bit of guidance, it’s not that difficult to work through and get an estimate of what you need in order to live comfortably during retirement.
Next, we can talk about equity release in the UK itself. Equity Release offers people who have been unemployed or retired for some time one more option when it comes to repaying their mortgage debt while ensuring they are still getting all their needs met each month such as utilities, health care insurance costs etc… By leveraging property equity at today’s low interest rates (as opposed to paying high monthly payments on mortgages), you may find yourself with a much larger retirement fund than you would have thought possible.
