Maximizing Social Security

Financial Strategy Fact Sheet

Goal: Maximize Social Security


The Problem

Senior Couple Using Laptop At Home

Individuals and couples miss out on opportunities they are entitled to by making decisions based on incorrect assumptions of how the Social Security system works.


This can lead to:

• loss of thousands of dollars of Social Security income over a lifetime, especially when coordinating spousal benefits

• unnecessary pressure on other sources of retirement savings

• unpleasant surprise in the amount of the Social Security benefit when factors such as the Windfall Elimination Provision are not taken into account.

• unhappiness with overall retirement income because they don’t realize that taxation of Social Security and the benefit amount are two different issues
