Solving the Social Security Puzzle

Solving the Social Security Puzzle

We hear regularly from people approaching retirement that Social Security is overwhelming! The rules are complicated, and it’s difficult to get answers from the Social Security Administration. That’s where we can help! Don’t miss our upcoming workshop: Solving the Social Security Puzzle.

We will address some of the important questions about Social Security Including:

  • Will Social Security be there when I’m ready to claim?
  • How are my benefits calculated?
  • How much will I potentially get?
  • How can I potentially get more?

What you will see is that a small change in strategy might mean much more money down the road!  So please join us.

WHEN: Wednesday November 18th, 6:30p.m.

Where: City Hall in Atkins

All are welcome but seating is limited

RSVP to Deanne Becker at 743-2912 or

We look forward to seeing you on the 18th!
