Making the Most of Social Security

One of the most important decisions you need to make before you retire is when to claim Social Security benefits. Many retirees apply for Social Security before reaching full retirement age.  But by doing so, they may significantly and permanently reduce the benefits that they — and possibly their spouses — could receive over a lifetime.

Do you understand the various claiming strategies that could enhance your income?

Whether you’re single, married, divorced, or widowed, there may be ways to maximize the lifetime Social Security benefits you receive.

Join us for an educational workshop where we’ll focus on topics including:

- When can I file for Social Security Benefits
- How married couples can help enhance their combined benefits
- How to claim retroactive benefits as a lump sum
- Changes to Social Security filing strategies resulting from the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015
- The effect of remarriage on survivor benefits for widowed and divorced spousesWhen you attend the workshop, you will receive a 20-page, information-packed financial workbook with essential information from the workshop.

Location: Onalaska Omni Center Banquet Room 3

Fee: $5 per Class per Person
