Course Description

Social Security has been a basic part of American life for more than 77 years. But, despite the age, the size, and the economic impact of the Social Security system, the myths and misunderstandings about what the program is, as well as what it is not, are sizeable. The Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015, and its impact on claiming strategies, makes it even more important for trusted advisors to learn the rules in order to best advise clients on how to maximize benefits.

Join us for this timely webinar with Former Director at the Social Security Administration, Kurt Czarnowski, to learn what these Social Security changes mean to you and your clients' financial security in retirement.

During this session, Kurt will educate you on the claiming strategies still available under the “new” law and what strategies have been grandfathered. He will explain spousal and survivor benefits, along with the benefits available to divorced clients.

Tom Dickson, Channel Leader at RMF, will provide two examples of how today’s lower-cost FHA-insured reverse mortgage can enhance Social Security claiming strategies.
