What Professionals Need to Know about Changes in Social Security Claiming Strategies in 2016 and Beyond

Speaker: Jodi Davis, The Kelly Group

Social Security can be far more complicated than people realize. The decisions your clients make now can have a tremendous impact on the total amount of benefits they receive over their lifetime.  As professionals, staying on top of Social Security planning with clients is very challenging due to the complexities of the program, and add in the recent legislative changes, retirement planning just got even more complicated.  Jodi will review the basics of social security planning, and also provide a thorough review of the legislative changes and how strategizing with clients will truly give you the edge you need to boost your practice.   Jodi recommends Advisors and CPAs complete a Social Security audit on all clients and prospects who are receiving Social Security, or plan to file for benefits soon, to discover some missed benefits and client opportunities.  Client examples will be provided.
