Hi. My name is ***** ***** I will be happy to help you. The answer is no and no. 1. Ownership of your home has nothing to do with your social security benefits. What you probably heard is reverse mortgage. You can get monthly check by slowly "selling" your home back to the bank. Instead of selling your home and get the proceeds you are getting cash against the equity. 2. If you wait until 70, you can get additional social security benefits. But you have to wait until than or apply at 65 and suspend your benefits (not collecting it) to get most of your social security benefits.
