Success Story

Here is an example of how our system is working for one of our clients.

Our client, who is currently employed but eager to retire as soon as possible, found herself facing financial challenges. After years of raising her daughters as a single parent, she realized that her current income wouldn’t sustain her desired lifestyle in retirement. She sought advice from friends, consulted with her CPA, and spoke to a couple of financial advisors. While she was aware that claiming benefits at 62 while still working was not advisable, the consensus shifted as she reached the age of 66, which marked her full retirement age. At this point, everyone was urging her to consider claiming her benefits.

Upon completing our comprehensive questionnaire, we made a significant discovery: our client had been previously married, and her husband, who had passed away several years prior, had contributed to the Social Security system during his working years. This revelation meant that she was eligible for a survivor’s benefit, a consideration she had never explored before.

Our analysis revealed a promising strategy: if she claimed her survivor’s benefit while continuing to work, her own Social Security benefit would grow substantially. Waiting until she turned 70 to claim her benefits would result in nearly a 40% increase in her benefit amount. While the prospect of working for another four years wasn’t met with enthusiasm, the additional income from the survivor’s benefit brought her immediate financial relief. Additionally, knowing that her benefits would continue to grow while she worked allowed her to plan more confidently.

This strategy also provided her with an extra four years to save and invest in her company’s 401(k) plan. By combining these three strategies, we significantly reduced the stress in her life. Now, with the assurance that she could retire and fulfill her dreams, her only remaining task was to negotiate a reduced workload with her boss, making her retirement plans closer to reality.
