Navigating Social Security to Maximize Retirement Benefits
presented by Better Benefits Family Group

TUESDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 2017

Logo

Michael Broadus and Michael Vasilou of Better Benefits Family Group provided a seminar titled “Navigating Social Security to Maximize Retirement Benefits”.  Their presentation focused upon; 1) reallocation of one’s retirement income to address ongoing monthly expenses; 2) how to initiate and navigate one’s status as a Social Security recipient; 3)  Medicare Health Insurance and how one’s income determines one’s Medicare premiums;  4) the affects of the Windfall Elimination Provision (see WEP) as it relates to one’s public retirement pension. There was also an opportunity to address the attendees’ individual questions related to the topics discussed. At the conclusion, the attendees indicated that they wish they had known about some of the information prior to retirement. Both presenters will be providing additional seminars in Spring 2018.
