Two years ago, George and Mollie Weiner were scraping by on $1,800 a month in Social Security payments and just $100 in monthly payouts from their individual retirement accounts.

But last year, the couple, both 80, realized they could generate more income from their two-bedroom condo near Tampa, Fla., which had more than doubled in value since they bought it in 1997. They took out a “reverse mortgage,” a loan that does not require monthly repayments, giving them access to more than $100,000.
