However, Social Security offers many opportunities for retired workers to supplement their income from the longstanding federal program. A well-planned strategy can greatly enhance recipients’ benefit levels.
A free June 12 seminar at Jannsen + Company (http://www.jannsen.com)
“Most workers pay into Social Security all their lives and plan to collect benefits immediately upon retiring,” said Terry Jannsen, CPA, CFP®, and President of Jannsen + Company, who will lead the seminar. “However, for those willing to consider alternative strategies, Social Security offers many opportunities to build a greater benefit later while still collecting income to maintain their lifestyle.”
For example, few might know that a spouse – even divorced spouses – can collect half of the benefit on their spouse’s record. By collecting just this benefit upon retirement, and delaying their full personal benefit for a few years, retirees can realize a significant gain in their final benefit levels.
The seminar will also address many public perceptions – and misperceptions – about the health and longevity of the Social Security program.
The June 12 seminar is free, but reservations are requested. Interested attendees should call Darlene at (262) 513-9292, or e-mail wealthmanagement@
