If your credit score is low, your down payment could be increased to compensate for it. Your credit score, yearly income, past repayment history all factor in to a loan acceptance.

If your wife has a lower FICO score will adding her as an authorized user or joint account holder have a negative effect on your FICO score?

No. The person who is the card holder is the person whose FICO score applies to. An authorized user/signer is in most cases not responsible for the debt, if the card holder defaults. Actually, it can effect your score if your talking about a joint account. Authorized users aren't responsible for accounts, thus no reporting of that account will appear on their credit bureau. If your wife has a bad account, late payment stuff like that. Then I would recommend not adding your name to her acccount. It will effect your score. But there will be no change to your score if you have her added to one of your accounts. Just make sure their good ones and everyone gets a boost.

If a husband dies will a wife be responsible for the mortgage debt even if she is not on the note?

His estate will be responsible for the mortgage. Assuming the wife is not on the deed, if the mortgage isn't paid the bank will foreclose and take possession of the property covered by the mortgage. If the wife is on the deed and she consented to the mortgage the bank can foreclose. If she is on the deed and did not consent to the mortgage then the bank had a defective title and may not be able to foreclose.

How do you add a wife to a reverse mortgage?

The only persons on a mortgage are the owners of the property. If your wife owns the property the lender would have required that she sign it. If she doesn't own the property then she isn't a party to the mortgage. You can't "add" her to the reverse mortgage transaction if she doesn't own the property. The purpose of a reverse mortgage is to grant the title to the premises to the bank upon the death of the owner. Therefore only the owner signs.If you are thinking of including a new wife (or wife who was not an owner of the property) under the benefits of a reverse mortgage you already executed, it is too late. You should contact the bank for more information.The only persons on a mortgage are the owners of the property. If your wife owns the property the lender would have required that she sign it.
