Social Security Planning

Research has shown that roughly 10,000 people in the U.S. will turn 65 each day through 2029¹, Every Day! But unless you are seeking reduced Social Security Benefits, you cannot receive full benefits until you reach your Full Retirement Age, which is 66 for those born between 1943 and 1954. As fewer retirees have the luxury of defined pension plans (guaranteed payments from ex-employers), more emphasis is placed on Social Security benefits as a secure source of retirement income. Financial planning for social security involves maximizing the income benefits by choosing the optimal claiming strategy for individuals and couples.
