Course Description

Understanding and making a smart Social Security election is a cornerstone decision for women's retirement plans. Not fully understanding the special financial barriers and issues women face in retirement can cost retirees hundreds of thousands of dollars. Discover how an incorrect Social Security election can result in 'money left on the table.' This course also includes a summary of the most recent Social Security rule changes made in the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 signed into law on November 2, 2015. For a detailed discussion of the BBA 2015, please see our course, Social Security Income: Indispensable Information for Financial Professionals.
