Social Security is fairly simple provided you worked long enough to earn the required number of quarters and were never married. However, when you add two-income couples and/or divorce into the mix-both historically high among baby boomers-the decisions become very complicated. The problem is, making the wrong choices can result in less income for the rest of your life.
“Securing Social Security” walks you through common, but surprisingly complex situations including:
? How being married, divorced or widowed impacts your benefits.
? How to give your Social Security check a potential boost.
? How benefits for one spouse are affected based on when and how the other spouse files.
This presentation will educate you on the many decisions involved in claiming Social Security, as well as their consequences and provide strategies to help maximize the benefits received.
