How Secured are you with your Social Security Benefits?
One of the major questions today’s retiree faces is whether he has enough money to maintain a similar or better lifestyle throughout retirement. Regular income that is guaranteed to increase over time and continue as long as you live is the best benefit your Social Security can offer . Unfortunately, a lot of people don’t understand how Social Security benefits really work and sadly still, most of the people never focus on how to help maximize their benefits.
The safety and comfort of guaranteed lifetime income provided by pensions may be a thing of the past. Future retirees can use the flexibility afforded by their 401(k) and IRA balances to help optimize and maximize the guaranteed lifetime benefits of Social Security. When properly planned, there are many advantages over pensions due to the tax advantages of higher Social Security benefits.
Retirees who employ a strategy that can withstand the risks they’ll face will have a better chance of enjoying a happier retirement. It is all about choices. Those who understand how to evaluate their choices and optimize their decisions will be the ones to enjoy a more secure retirement. A larger amount of Social Security within a retirement income strategy may, indeed, be the golden ticket to the golden years.
