Social Security Claiming Strategies
Our experiences working with hundreds of families in developing Living Financial Plans have demonstrated to us time and again how important a sound Social Security claiming strategy is to long term financial success. The decision to claim your benefits early or defer to a later date can have profound effects on your future financial health. Because Social Security is a lifetime benefit, and a decision to claim is not easily reversible – it is critical that you are well informed of the long-term consequences of a claiming decision before you make it. We specialize in integrating your Social Security benefit options into your larger financial plan, thus taking full advantage of various spousal benefit coordination, cash flow management, and tax efficiency outcomes in your retirement.
While predicting future medical costs in your retirement is not possible, it is nonetheless crucial to protect yourself with appropriate insurance to shield your financial assets in the event of a healthcare need. We help our clients navigate the complex Medicare enrollment and subsequent annual renewal periods by comparing protection benefits of various policy options against your budget requirements. By first understanding the underlying financial needs of your retirement plan, we can effectively help you navigate the myriad options available to you through the Medicare system.
