Percentage of people that don't optimize their Social Security benefits.
Here's what our clients are saying.
Prepare for Social Security consulting really helped me maximize my Social Security benefits in retirement. I almost made a mistake, and they caught it!
The people at the Social Security office near me couldn’t answer some of my questions, so I bought the Premier Social Security consulting package, just to make sure I was getting good advice and help filing at the SSA. My consultant Jim was a godsend! He walked me through all of my claiming options and helped me claim them.
Social Security Administration rules and regulations were confusing, and I wanted to make sure I didn’t make a mistake in filing too early. Glad I did!
I read Matt’s book and decided pretty early on my husband and I needed some SSA consulting. The Social Security consultant spent a lot of time with me going over my specific situation (married, and my husband is quite a bit older) and optimized our Social Security filing strategy. Money well-spent!
My Social Security calculators were fine to mess around with, but the online calculators all seemed to come up with different numbers and advice. Paying for customized Social Security consulting seemed to be the way to go, and I was confident when I finally filed at the Social Security admin.
I visited the Social Security admin office near me, got frustrated and walked out. I wanted to make sure my SSA filing paperwork was in order and that I didn’t miss anything. My SSA consultant calculated my Social Security benefits, crunched the numbers and gave me a report outlining all of my SSA filing options.
