Getting the most out of Social Security

Published: Monday, July 21, 2014 10:10 a.m. CDT

An educational workshop titled “Savvy Social Security Planning for Couples” has been scheduled for 6:30 p.m. Tuesday at the Somonauk Public Library.

The Social Security decisions spouses make when they are in their 60s will determine the amount of total income they will receive over their lifetime – including the lifetime of the spouse who lives the longest. This workshop will cover some little-known rules that can help married couples get more out of the Social Security system.

This workshop is primarily for married couples as it discusses Social Security benefits available to spouses. Seating is limited and reservations are recommended. Reserve space by calling Dano LoPresti at 815-786-7851 or by visiting www.legacyfp.com/seminars.
