During the Great Depression poverty rates among senior citizens exceeded 50%. In an effort to limit what were seen as dangers in modern American life - old age, poverty, unemployment, and the burdens of widows - President Franklin D. Roosevelt proposed a social safety net that has evolved over the years into our present day Social Security program.
Today it is estimated that Social Security keeps roughly 40% of all Americans age 65 or older out of poverty and is designed to replace 40% of the typical worker's pre-retirement income.
On April 25th we will revisit one of our most popular workshop topics from 2010: Getting the Most from Social Security. Discussion topics will include:
- "Full Retirement Age" and how it impacts your benefit amount
- Electing early or late benefits and what that means in dollars and cents
- Working while collecting
- Spousal benefits
- Maximizing your benefit
We'll provide coffee, juice, and lunch. Please come prepared with questions.
