Many people assume that they have to begin receiving Social Security retirement benefits as soon as they retire and stop working, but that’s not the case.
Retiring and claiming Social Security benefits are different. You have options, and learning about them may help you make a well-informed decision about when to start receiving your benefits.
In this webinar, Fatima Iqbal, CFP, and Beth Moffett, CPA, talk about:
- how your Social Security benefit is calculated,
- the pros and cons of taking benefits early or delaying them,
- how your decisions about Social Security will affect your spouse,
- how your Social Security benefit will be taxed, and more.
