Social Security Analysis
We can help you get more with a smart claiming strategy.
Roy and Mary Got More
Roy and Mary are both planning to retire when Roy turns 65 and were planning to begin their Social Security benefits at that time. Monthly benefits at age 65 would have been $2,262 for Roy and $1,003 for Mary. Their lifetime cumulative payout would have been $958,500. Not bad, but here’s what we showed them:
If Roy and Mary followed their plan, benefits would have been reduced because they were filing early. In addition, because of some complicated rules of Social Security they didn’t know about, Mary would have missed out on substantially more in benefits.
Our expert Social Security advice and the powerful software we use increased their lifetime cumulative payout to $1,142,364. Roy and Mary have the potential to get $183,864 more!*
