10,000 baby boomers are retiring today, tomorrow and every day after that for the next 18 years! 

The baby boomer generation is beginning to collect benefits, and Social Security is becoming a hot topic!

This month’s featured guest is Robin Mueller, one of the nation’s leading experts when it comes to Social Security. He’ll teach us a number of strategies to use with our clients as they transition into retirement.

Whether someone chooses to take their Social Security retirement benefit early or delay it, there are a number of items to consider. Should one take a reduction in benefits or an incentive? Robin will discuss items such as the earnings limitation versus need, spousal benefits and quality of life, to name a few.

The ideas shared in this webinar are current as of January 9th, 2015.
