I retired a few years ago and I've been trying to drive my taxable income as low as possible. Sounds fun, eh? A month ago I ran into a situation I didn't expect. I applied for an extension (increased line of credit) of a revolving home equity loan and even though I have assets, including the equity in my house, that could cover the loan limit more than ten times over, I 'couldn't qualify' because my 'income was too low'. I was applying at the bank that held the existing equity line of credit. I'm sure I'm not the first retired person living off my investments to apply for a loan, any ideas on how to approach it? - David
