An educational workshop titled "Savvy Social Security Planning: What Baby Boomers Need to Know to Maximize Retirement Income" has been scheduled for the 7th of May at the Hudson Library from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m.. We will also be holding another set of workshops on the 16th of May at the Hawkeye Center for Business and Industry in the Cedar Falls Industrial Park. There will be two sessions on that date, the first from 11:00-1:00 p.m. and the second from 5:30-7:00 p.m..
After being told for years that Social Security is "going broke," baby boomers are realizing that it will soon be their turn to collect. But the decisions they make now can have a tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits they stand to receive over their lifetime.
Questions boomers are asking include:
Will Social Security be there for me?
How much can I expect to receive?
When should I apply for Social Security?
How can I maximize my benefits?
Will Social Security be enough to live on in retirement?
To help baby boomers better understand the Social Security system, this workshop will cover
5 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
How to coordinate Social Security with your other sources of retirement income
