Though some people tend to take them for granted, Social Security benefits can be more valuable than you may realize. First off, Social Security is one of the few sources of income you can’t outlive. The longer you live, the more you’ll earn. What’s more, Social Security provides survivor benefits. If you pass away, your spouse and dependent children can receive benefits based on your work record – much like an automatic life insurance policy.
When is the Best Time to Apply for Benefits?
Knowing when and how to apply for your benefits is a critical step in the Social Security planning process. The difference between the best method and the second-best method of collecting Social Security could mean an extra $100,000 or more in benefits throughout your lifetime. That’s why it’s important to have all the information necessary to determine which filing strategy is best for your individual goals and situation. And even if you’ve determined the best time and method for taking Social Security benefits based on your age, objectives, and lifelong earnings, it won’t matter much unless you properly coordinate your benefits with your overall retirement income plan.
We’ll work with you to make sure all your savings and investment vehicles are as reliable as Social Security, and capable of providing income you can’t outlive. We’ll help you determine:
- The amount you expect to receive in benefits.
- The best time to apply for your benefits.
- The best strategies for maximizing your benefits.
