MALTA – Retirement Solutions will be presenting a free Social Security information workshop at the Round Lake Library Malta Branch for pre-retirees age 55 and older at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Sept. 26.
Today’s baby boomers can expect to spend more time in retirement given increased life expectancies. As a result, claiming one’s Social Security benefits is no longer a simple decision. 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.
Topics covered include the best time to claim benefits; how much money one can earn before getting penalized; survivor benefits; recent changes in legislation and how they will impact benefits; avoiding frequent claiming mistakes; and why Social Security is crucial to women.
The workshop is open to the public. There is no cost to attend. Advanced registration is required. Light refreshments will be served. To RSVP, please contact the library at 518- 682-2495.
