Social Security 101: How to Maximize Your Retirement Benefits

Best-selling author and Social Security specialist Mark MacDonald will present a free educational workshop, “Strategies For Maximizing Your Social Security Benefits,” at Drew University, October 2nd and 9th at 7 pm.
A free educational workshop on how to avoid Social Security mistakes and increase your retirement income will be held in Mead Hall at Drew University, Oct. 2nd and 9th from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. 
When to collect Social Security may be the single most important decision you make when it comes to your retirement. In fact, timing could be everything! There are a lot of very common mistakes people make when signing up for benefits. There are several little known strategies that are capable of boosting your benefits and greatly increasing your retirement income. This is your opportunity to learn some key factors you need to know before applying for Social Security.
Discussion Highlights Include:
Strategies to maximize your Social Security benefits.
How benefits are calculated and simple strategies to increase them.

Coordinating benefits...why married couples could miss out on substantial benefits. 
When should you apply for social security...what you don’t know could cost you! Special strategies for married couples, divorced individuals and widows.

Plan Well, Retire Well!
Social Security benefits alone will likely be insufficient for you to retire comfortably. Don’t assume you can draw full benefits at age 65 — the rules have changed. Please join your host, Social Security specialist Mark MacDonald, for this very informative and educational event. Also, Dr. Laurence Kotlikoff will help present via video. 
Making the best decision about when to apply for Social Security is a very complex decision and making the right decision can make a very substantial difference in your income and standard of living in retirement. Learn how one uninformed decision could potentially impact your retirement income by tens of thousands of dollars – or more!
