The Center for Retirement Research at Boston College has made available a handy guide that addresses the question, “At what age should you begin claiming Social Security benefits?” If you’re approaching retirement, it’s the most important financial decision you’ll likely make. The Social Security Claiming Guide sorts through all the options near-retirees need to consider. Presented in an easy-to-read, colorful format, the Claiming Guide shows you where to begin, spells out how much you can get, and answers frequently asked questions about how the claiming process works. A must read for your clients nearing the age of 62!”
