This 45 minute course offers real world strategies for those who are preparing for retirement and want to learn how to optimize their Social Security benefits and make their personal savings last.

One of the most important decisions you will be required to make before you retire is when and how to claim Social Security benefits. The majority of retirees apply for benefits as soon as they become eligible, at age 62. For many however, they do so without realizing they are significantly and permanently reducing the benefit amounts they and their spouse will have the opportunity to receive throughout their lifetime.

Whether you’re single, married, divorced or widowed, there may be ways to optimize the amount of lifetime, after tax, benefits you and your family receive from Social Security. To do so successfully requires a keen understanding of the Social Security retirement system and the critical issues.
