You're listening to retire right with Allan Becker on the retirement. News network. Hi it's mega NASDAQ from the retirement news network always a pleasure to be here Alan backer of retirement solutions group he would like to begin building your retirement future call Ellen today here's his number. 913. U 867980. X 9132867980. Today were sorting through the misconceptions about Social Security in retirement and we talked a lot about the advantages of waiting to start receiving benefits and that's to help optimize your monthly benefits to Allen for people who are trying to do this does that mean between age 62. And their full retirement age that they can't receive any money at all. Now that's now what that means it see here's the thing if you take Social Security early meaning. Speak for your full retirement age which as we talked about earlier from most of us. It's probably going to be around 67 years old. Whether few months before few months after but around the age of 67 here's the thing if you are working prior to full retirement age. What you will see is a reduction in your benefits could be dollar for dollar two dollars. A dollar for re too you make an offer retreat there's a formula. That's a security puts out what's important understanding and it's not a big number more talk and around fourteen grand as all you can make before they start reducing your benefits. But a full retirement age you can make whatever you locked in the early years if you take a Social Security. Here's where one of the misconceptions comes from they they take that Miami they will. Re calculated. Your benefits of any monies that he or make a lawyer working plus the monies that they. Kind of penalized you from because you're working. Is gonna be recalculated. Back in the year. Social Security payment when you hit for retirement age and then you're gonna go ahead and see some of that increased benefits in that kind of necessary lose at all you just have to live long enough to receive those benefits and the X is usually cross around 7879. Years old so you plan on live in the past the statistical age of 7879. Meaning most paper make it to 82 and 84 that's the averages. Then you really should look at delaying Social Security if you have the ability. And a lot of that comes from proper planning with a financial advisor. Like the team here retirement solutions group all aspects of your tyrant plan should be working together to provide you the peace of mind you need. As you're going to enter retirement. Allen what do spouses to and depth divorcee what do you do there is there a chance he could still receive benefits based on your taxes work history. Absolutely I got a chuckle out of that because this is one of those conversations that comes up quite frequently but not in the aspect Hewitt take a lot of people are thinking how can I. Not what my ex spouse have my benefits how can they make it less for them or something it's always kind of a it becomes a lot across a lot of times is more of a malicious clutched and then than beneficial question. Slight chuckle but. Here's the thing you have no control over what your spouse does on your record someone explain that rule and it doesn't affect your benefits either. It's just the way it works so here's today if you were married for at least ten years. Your spouse can file a new year record and they're gonna get. About 50% of your benefit. And if they take it is 62 it would be you know that benefited your full retirement so to be reduced benefit and 62 and increased benefited seventy. That's how it works it has no effect on you. Getting your benefit it's just what they're entitled to. For being married to some to a another Social Security beneficiary. If you've been married four different times ten years apiece for different spouses you look at the higher. Of 81 of those taxes they're gonna make sure you get the highest benefit you're entitled to. Again doesn't and in fact the source charity beneficiary. That is get the full benefits we're talking about a half benefit payment to a surviving spouse or divorcee widow that I think they they're gonna get that benefit. It does stepped up to higher amount. Win the person you receiving benefits from passes away. Though. That answers that question but it is. And I option to file under somebody else's number if it's going to be higher than your benefit and you were married for more than ten years. I'm okay I think I've found that they get a little complicated. It does it comes up quite a bit obviously. But it's one of those questions that need to be answered and we need to know how it applies to us individually. He made in retirement planning. Is unique in its as individuals your own fingerprints everybody. Likes to ask other people their opinions and find out what their friends are doing just nobody wants to go on an alarming when go to a restaurant in my past. The waiter waitress what's good tonight our. They don't know what you like repel like pages you're just asking for some confirmation that's just it's human nature. But understanding financial planning is unique in independent I mean. We see at all times some they'll come in and you know their live and on 1520000. Dollars potentially. A year. Some maybe a month others so everybody's different rate than you go. And you rescue brother or your sister and they had a different job different career they made a different amount of money. And they spend different amounts so asking that your brother sister Fran what they think is a good number retirement is totally irrelevant. Unless you lived in the exact same house of the same price of the same cars same kids names paralysis and likes to say Tim saying it's not possible right. So you need to make sure that your plan is built to U. And that's kind of the basis of the roundtable retirement process here retirement solutions group we have developed this plan. After years of experience has shown us the five. Basic fears that retirees really need help them in retirement everything from income but once you're retired run out of money to investment planning make future. Figure rebounds and regularly that you're not paying an over. Lee high amount in fees. And that you understand your risk tolerance than we look at tax efficiency and making sure you stay in control of your taxes because I was hoping you'd spend money better than our government right so tax efficient planning and there's the health care making sure that your long term care concerns and year.

Alan how. It's key and you expect from Social Security just terms of replacing your monthly paychecks.

Of a person now the statistics today sits down about 36%. Of what you need to live so you still need. On another. You know 506070%. Of money coming in depending on how much you spend. Above and beyond Social Security take care of your needs your wants your lifestyle to maintain that standard of living so it's very important that you find. Other income sources that you're saving for retirement. And they you do should be eating those assets correctly.

It also sounds daunting I'll be honest and I know that's where having a financial professional can really help someone who. Not only is gonna help you accumulate your wealth. And help you distribute that wealth in retirement so what qualities should we be looking for especially for somebody who can help us with our retirement. Income. You sit Soviets daunting that is why you easy a qualified professional exactly but here's the other thing don't get so overwhelming he did nothing. Paralysis to analysis. Our analysis paralysis excuse me. That's not the way to get to your retirement you have to find some way you understand. And you have to look at it what's unique about different products and services. Think that this way that we we talked our client and the quite often about. Train relating to something that you would understand here's a talker you know how your car runs or why he gets 35 miles of the gallon. Do you care why it does or do you just wanna know. That's reliable the get in the car you turn on the mission you put gas and and occasionally. It's gonna go where it needs to go and get short years you hear intended goal use of purpose of that automobile for many of us. You're the second when you you're just wanna know that it works.
