When to take Social Security is a critical decision for you and your spouse’s long-term plans. There is much more to consider than a simple break-even analysis. As holistic financial planners, we help you determine all Social Security strategies that are available to you (i.e., Social Security benefits from: current spousal benefits, former marriages, or a deceased spouse). Then, we help you determine the best time to collect Social Security.
As part of the planning process, we take into consideration how your Social Security benefits will interact with other income sources such as:
Required Minimum Distributions (RMDs)
Dividends and Interest
We also factor in family health conditions, spousal benefits, personal preferences, and more.
