When to Elect Social Security Seminar

The Groton Public Library is hosting a free information presentation on Social Security, presented by Rick Mattson of Morin Associates, LLC. When to elect Social Security is one of the biggest decisions you will make as you make your transition to retirement.  A recent study suggested that an average married couple can get an extra $125,000 in benefits by employing smart election strategies.  Options exist for people who are divorced or widowed as well that can increase benefits by tens of thousands of dollars.  Further, Social Security benefits are taxed differently than any other assets you have in your retirement income plan. By employing smart strategy, both in how you elect benefits and in how you draw from your other investments, many people can experience substantial tax savings.   If you have questions about when and how to elect Social Security and how to integrate Social Security into a tax-efficient retirement income plan, this seminar is for you! Registration is not required. For more information about this program, please call the Library at 860-441-6750.
