Social Security Planning for Boomers

After being told for years that Social Security is going broke, baby boomers are realizing that it will soon be their turn to collect. The decisions you make now can have tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits you stand to receive over your lifetime. This informative seminar covers the basics of Social Security and reveals strategies for maximizing your benefits, including: factors to consider when deciding when to apply for benefits; when it makes sense to delay benefits - and when it does not; why you should always check your earnings record for accuracy; how to estimate your benefits; how to coordinate benefits with your spouse; how to minimize taxes on Social Security benefits; and how to coordinate Social Security with your other sources of retirement income.
