Like most people, you probably have a lot of questions about the role Social Security will play in your retirement. The answers to these questions depend largely on your earning history and when you plan to start taking benefits. Understanding the concepts behind Social Security can help you make well-informed decisions that will optimize the amount and timing of your benefits and the impact on your overall retirement plan. For more information, review the Social security fundamentals white paper or contact me to discuss your retirement plan.
Social Security can be an important part of your retirement income stream. The decision about when to begin taking the benefits you have earned may have important consequences. Start them early and your monthly income will be lower than if you wait until your full retirement age. Delay them and your monthly “paycheck” will be larger. Please contact me for help determining when it may be appropriate for you to start taking social security benefits and to explore strategies for maximizing benefits for married couples.
