Social Security presentation

On January 29, at 12:15 p.m., the Placitas Senior Center will have a free workshop geared toward men and women in their fifties and sixties who are interested in learning about the strategizing and planning that should be done to maximize their benefits at the time of their retirement. The presentation attempts to bridge the information gap and empower recipients to make educated Social Security decisions. Topics covered include: when to start taking Social Security, how much you can expect to receive based on individual and joint life expectancy, how COLAs (Cost of Living Adjustments) affect your benefits, the ramifications of a spouse’s death on benefits, how do former marriages affect benefits, what strategies are allowed to maximize benefits, and how Social Security can be aligned with retirement plans. No registration necessary.
