Join Us for Securing Social Security

Deciding on your options for claiming Social Security benefits might not be as complex if 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. Making the wrong choices can result in less income for the rest of your life. Join our presentation to learn more about surprisingly complex situations including:

  • When to consider claiming Social Security benefits
  • How being married, divorced or widowed can impact your benefits
  • How to potentially give your Social Security check a boost
  • How benefits for one spouse can be affected depending on many factors, including when and how the other spouse files
