What is the Maximizing Social Security Course?

Did you know there are 567 different ways to claim your social security benefits? And 2,728 rules in the social security handbook? It’s true! No wonder why as much as $10 BILLION in benefits go unclaimed every year! Social Security is one of the most valuable and least understood benefits available to retirees today. Proactive planning is essential, and the decisions made have a tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits you receive over your lifetime.

Course Description

This course provides a fundamental working knowledge of the Social Security program as it applies to retirement planning. The materials cover the history of Social Security, how to qualify for benefits, spousal benefits, widow & widower benefits, taxation of benefits, working while you receive benefits, issues involved in claiming benefits early, and strategies to maximize your benefits while developing an income stream in retirement.

This is not a financial seminar; this is a financial course of study where you will leave with the knowledge and information needed to make decisions about Social Security benefits.
