Social Security Planning

Filing for Social Security requires the right education and guidance.

You’ve worked hard and paid into the Social Security system for decades. Now it’s time to get your investment back.

When you partner with Allworth to navigate the Social Security system, our job is to help you understand:

  • The best time for you to apply
  • How to maximize your monthly benefit
  • Strategies that lower your tax burden
  • Your Full Retirement Age (FRA)
  • Unique considerations for people who are married, divorced, or widowed
  • Methods to help you adapt to future changes that could impact the program

Social Security has drastically changed, not just since its inception in 1935, but just in the last few years. It’s an important program for retirees to augment their income, but the optimum time to apply substantially varies from person-to-person. Start homing in your Social Security strategy with free filing advice from an experienced Allworth advisor.

We understand. Retirement is a big deal. So, if you’re within 5-10 years of retirement, this is the perfect opportunity to assess your Social Security strategy and review your goals with a complimentary, no-pressure phone or video call with a professional Allworth advisor.

You have multiple options:

Social Security Check-In – 30 min.

This is the best option if you’re considering working with a financial advisor but aren’t sure exactly how this relationship fits into your life.

During this meeting, we’ll ask you some general questions about your current financial needs while answering any pressing Social Security questions or concerns that might be weighing on you.

This is your opportunity to better understand Allworth’s approach to retirement planning, while receiving some beneficial information designed to help you determine the next best steps for planning for your life beyond work.

Financial Planning Consultation – 60 min.

We believe that choosing the right advisor to help you reach your financial goals is one of the biggest decisions you’ll ever make. That’s why our Initial Financial Discussion is 100% about you.

Designed for someone who is actively seeking a financial advisor to partner with, this meeting is an opportunity for you to get acquainted, talk about your goals for the future, take a deeper dive into your overall financial needs or concerns, and explore how we may be able to help you.

Retirement is unique for everyone. That’s why the advisor you’re matched with will assess your current financial situation based on the information you’re comfortable sharing. By the end of this meeting, we hope you’ll have a clear picture about whether we’re the ideal partner for you, your family, and to help you meet your needs.

That’s it! No surprises, sales tactics, or pressure.
