The Social Security code is a massive maze of confusing, seemingly contradictory rules. All told, there are over 70,000 different ways to collect Social Security, making it difficult to know what the best way to collect you Social Security income is. Because everyone’s situation is different, you need a strategy that fits your unique needs.
For example, deciding when you or your spouse starts collecting can make a big difference in your collection strategy. Even a couple of years’ age difference between you and your spouse might call for a different strategy. To make matters even more difficult, Social Security agents are prohibited from giving claiming advice, so they cannot help you maximize your earnings from Social Security.
Thayer Partners, LLC works with you to help you optimize your Social Security claiming strategy so that you can maximize your income.
While these strategies can help you maximize your retirement income, it’s important to remember that the Social Security code is very complicated, and it does change from time to time. This is why it’s important to consult with a retirement planning expert, because a claiming strategy that works for one person might not be the best one for you.
