It’s never a bad time to speak with your financial advisor about changes in your situation.
Whether you are 40, 60, or older, married, divorced, or widowed, how do you define Successful Retirement? Most of our clients define it as their time to travel, play golf or tennis, learn a new skill, paint, spend time with family, volunteer, build a garden, take up sailing, spoil their grandchildren, but none describe it as having to scrimp so they don’t run out of money!
We help our clients pursue and enjoy a worry-free retirement when the time comes.
An important component of any retirement plan is Social Security. Not understanding how benefits are calculated can result in significant losses.

All questions in personal finance boil down to your living standard. Your decision about when and how to take Social Security can affect your living standard throughout your retirement.
Social Security offers retirement, spousal, widow, widower, child, mother/father, and divorcee benefits. It has highly complex benefit formulas, which include wage indexation of past covered earnings, benefit-specific reduction formulas for collecting benefits early, an earnings test, deeming provisions that limit when married and divorced people can take particular benefits, delayed retirement credits, credits for getting hit by the earnings test, indexation of benefits to inflation, a family benefit maximum, a "file and suspend" option permitting you to collect free spousal benefits while you defer your retirement benefit, the option to start your benefits early, suspend them, and restart them later, Windfall Elimination and Government Pension Offset provisions that limit retirement and spousal benefits available to workers with non-covered employment histories, and so on.
Deciding, on your own, which Social Security benefits to take and in which month to take them is incredibly difficult. Many households face a multitude of options. You can easily lose tens of thousands of dollars making the wrong choices.
