socialsecurity1Maximizing Your Social Security

Saturday, September 15, 10:30 a.m. or Thursday, September 20, 2:30 p.m.

Get the latest information on changes to claiming options that may affect you! One of the most important - and potentially confusing - decisions you need to make as you approach retirement is when and how to claim Social Security benefits. Over half of retirees apply for Social Security as soon as they become eligible at the age 62, but by doing so, they significantly and permanently reduce their income and benefits.

This educational course will help you gain a better understanding of what options and strategies are available to you regarding your Social Security benefits. We also cover the importance of a holistic strategy that combines Social Security with other assets for maximum benefit.

The difference between the best and worst Social Security strategy can cost well over $100,000! With hundreds of ways to claim, and thousands of rules, Social Security can be very confusing. At this workshop you will learn important rules that affect the amount of retirement benefits you collect, as well as strategies that coordinate Social Security with other sources of retirement income.
