Social Security: Strategize to Maximize

Date(s): 4/28/2014

6:30-8 pm

Florian Gardens
When Should You Begin Receiving Your Social Security Retirement Benefits? As you near retirement, one of the biggest financial decisions you'll need to make is when to begin receiving your Social Security retirement benefits. With pensions disappearing, Social Security remains the major source of guaranteed lifetime retirement income for most Americans, so it's important to take the time to explore your options and make an informed, well-reasoned decision. In this seminar on Social Security Retirement Benefits, you'll learn: *What your full retirement age is and how your benefit is determined *How retiring earlier than, or later than, your full retirement age will affect your Social Security benefit *Why it's important to plan together with your spouse, and strategies you can use to boost retirement and survivor's benefits *How working after you begin receiving Social Security could affect how much you receive.

Christian:
Second Wind seeks to reenergize members of the Baby Boom generation who are concluding long work careers, starting new careers or work ventures, or have retired.

Our kickoff event on April 5, 2014 will be both inspirational and informational … addressing practical issues which Boomers are facing (such as caring for elderly parents) and energizing all of us to discover the ways that we can make our greatest personal contribution to our families, communities, and world.
