Social Security filing
On Tuesday evening, Oct. 24 at 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. in the library’s large meeting room, Perry Public Library will present a program concerning Social Security and how married couples and those who are widowed or divorced can maximize their lifetime benefits. If you are in that 50ish age range, your thoughts are turning towards retirement and wondering if you have been doing all the right things to retire when you want to retire.
Some married couples often make the mistake of filing for their Social Security benefits based solely on their age, as if each were single. This is a mistake, and could cost the couple tens of thousands of dollars over their retirement.
Individuals who are widowed or divorced many times make similar mistakes and don’t realize that there are specific strategies that can be put in place to maximize their potential social security benefits available to them.
The presentation is free, but registration is required. Call the library at 465-3569 to register.
