Is it always wise for a retired person to pay off one's mortgage? Seems to me that it would be better to have the funds invested,growing, & compounding rather than tied up in one's home. You would also enjoy the mortgage interest tax deduction benefit. Yes, you would need a larger income in retirement to cover mortgage payments & the larger income might mean larger taxes but the invested amount could conceiveably grow and produce enough to cover the mortgage & taxes plus leave one with extra funds. Any thoughts?
