    Deliberate deprivation rules?
    Originally posted by LHW99
    The couples in the ad all look in good physical and mental health and show no signs of needing care in the near future, and at no point do they mention a desire to give all their money away and then throw themselves on the mercy of the state. Where do you see a deliberate deprivation problem?

    The downside is in the not-that-small-print risk warning at the bottom of the ad - "A lifetime mortgage will reduce an inheritance." And "You should consider other options to borrow money which may be more cost effective."
