6 Questions Answered on How Retirement Funds Can Make Mortgage Payments

While cities and towns across America begin to open up and some return to the workforce, many wonder how long it will take to get the economy back to where it was before the Coronavirus hit.  For most, even though they are returning back to work, they will still be experiencing a significant pay-cut making their cash flow and ability to afford their mortgage challenging.

Per the CARES Act, your lender or loan servicer may not foreclose on you for sixty days after March 18, 2020 and with most top economists under agreement that the economical landscape will begin to recover in the second half of 2020, what can those struggling now do until then?  Some literally cant afford to wait that long.

The question on how someone can pay back their mortgage payments after forbearance is over is another cause for concern with options being:

  • in one lump sum at the end of the forbearance period

  • added onto your existing monthly payments over a set number of months

  • added to the end of your loan as additional payments or as a lump sum

Only government backed lenders have offered to have the payments added to end of the loan, so those working with lending institutions not backed by the U.S. Government could still face serious hardship and foreclosure once their forbearance period is over.  Not to mention the damage done to their credit if they are not able to make the payments agreed upon with their lender.

There is an alternative to what the government and mortgage companies are offering which could ultimately be an investment advantage.  Temporary utilization of your IRA or 401k Rollover today, can save the investment you have in your home, lighten your monthly cash flow burden, and still preserve monies for the future.

We’ve quickly answered six of the top questions we get concerning using IRA funds to support mortgage payments here:

Q: I’m not old enough to qualify to start withdrawing my retirement money yet, so how can it help me now?

A: There are two different ways in which your retirement monies could help you through this transition time.  Both options are available to you at any age.

Q: What is the difference between the two strategies?

The IRA Real Estate to Occupy Investing Strategy, wherein the real estate is purchased OUTSIDE™ of the IRA, is similar to estate planning.  Your current financial situation is evaluated, your long term goals are assessed and then with these elements in mind, your retirement funds are structured for immediate support of your existing mortgage or for a new real estate purchase or build, while at the same time, ensuing security and longevity of the principal balance of your retirement fund.

The Mortgage Relief Strategy offers a short term bridge solution intended to assist your cash flow needs.  This strategy can assist individuals with low value retirement funds and would be suggested for consideration if the IRA Real Estate to Occupy Investing Strategy, or OUTSIDE™ Method, is incompatible with your circumstances.

Q: Will I incur penalties for accessing my retirement monies prior to retirement age?

A: Not when your retirement funds are structured by the IRA Real Estate to Occupy Investing, or the OUTSIDE™ Method.

The Mortgage Relief Strategy could incur a penalty, however, this strategy is calculated to take effect on an as needed basis, substantially minimizing the penalty to a level where the benefits outweigh the cost.
