One of the most important decisions you need to make before you retire is when to claim Social Security benefits. Many retirees apply for Social Security before reaching full retirement age. But by doing so, they may significantly and permanently reduce the benefits that they — and possibly their spouses — could receive over a lifetime.
Social Security provides not only a guaranteed income stream but also longevity protection, spousal protection, and some inflation protection. It may be the closest thing you receive to a traditional pension.
Whether you’re single, married, divorced, or widowed, there may be ways to maximize the lifetime Social Security benefits you receive. The concepts discussed in this course are most suitable for those with investable assets of $100k or more.
Join us at Desert Broom Library for an informational Social Security Workshop on Wednesday, February 5 from 5:30-6:30 PM or Wednesday, February 12 from 5:30-6:30 PM.
