What you'll learn in this personal finance class:

Filing for Social Security benefits can be stressful. Failing to use the right strategy when choosing when and how to claim benefits can cost you a lot of money, and potentially put your surviving spouse at financial risk. Don't leave thousands of dollars "on the table" simply because you don't understand how to optimize your benefits. 

Join us for an informative and easy-to-understand seminar that explores how you can maximize your Social Security income. Gain the knowledge you need to make an educated and confident election decision. This seminar is designed to assist those who have not yet, but will soon begin receiving their Social Security retirement benefits, and those who have begun their payments within the past year.
