Uncovering Social Security Secrets

Social Security is often a critical component of financial comfort in retirement. It can make the difference for remaining independent in your 80s and 90s and beyond. Unfortunately, there are thousands of rules and twice as many ways to misunderstand those rules! As a result, many individuals make decisions that reduce their permanent benefit payments by 30%. It is easy to make mistakes when claiming Social Security. During this presentation, you will

  • Understand how your own Social Security benefit is calculated and how you can maximize the benefit for your income in retirement.
  • Find out about the four claiming categories and their unique rules if you are married, divorced, widowed, or single
  • Learn why and how the benefit amount you see on your statement is not the amount you will receive.

After this presentation, you will better understand Social Security benefits and see how the program works. Then, discover how to make better Social Security decisions for your personal financial circumstances.
