Claiming Social Security - Finding the best Strategy

June 13, 2014

The Social Security Program is simple and complicated at the same time.

Simple because you barely notice it is there, unless you examine every one of your paychecks for the line with your contribution or - if you are self-employed - have to write a quarterly check for what is called 'self-employment tax' in your case.

Planning for the other side of the coin, claiming retirement benefits, however, is much more complicated as many variables, such as employment record, your age, marital status, children, working status, spouse's age and earnings determine the amount you can claim. You should not wait until you retire to weigh the options. To help you plan out the best strategy we have invested in a program that utilizes the Social Security algorithms to estimate all possible benefit scenarios. The cost is $50 for our existing clients and $100 if you are new to us. Call us and utilize this invaluable service.
