RESCHEDULED TO MARCH 20 DUE TO A WATER MAIN BREAK

Today’s baby boomers can expect to live longer in their retirement years due to rapid advances in science, medicine and technology in comparison to previous generations. As a result, the concern over the possibility of increased longevity is causing a major paradigm shift in how people view and prepare for their retirement.

In particular, the timing of when to claim one’s Social Security benefits was once a simple decision and now requires advanced planning and a coordinated strategy. For many retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important financial decision can be a major step toward a more comfortable retirement.

The program seeks to explore retirement from a time perspective as well as the impact of longevity in order to help attendees (ages 55+) make a more informed decision before choosing when to claim their Social Security benefits. Topics covered include recent changes in legislation, why Social Security is crucial to women, avoiding frequent claiming mistakes and the best way to maximize benefits.

The workshop is sponsored by Retirement Solutions, LLC and is open to the general public. There is no cost to attend. Advanced registration is required. Light refreshments will served.
