One of the trickiest decisions facing people as they think about retirement is when to take Social Security. The decision has lasting consequences. And it can be different for different people with different circumstances or goals. The number of options alone makes this a challenging and often confusing decision.
That's why we've invited Steve Lewis and Glenn Frank to provide an overview of Social Security, a primer on the options for signing up, a review of the advantages and disadvantages that go along with these options, and how they apply in specific kinds of situations, e.g., people who are divorced or widowed.
Join us to learn more about how to think about this decision and assess what options might be right for you. And we'll leave plenty of time for you to get answers to your questions.
