Deciding on a strategy for claiming Social Security benefits might not be as complex if you worked long enough to earn the required number of quarters and were never married. However, when you add two-income couples and/or divorce into the mix--both historically high among baby boomers--the decisions become very complicated. Making the wrong choices can result in less income for the rest of your life.

Join our presentation to learn more about surprisingly complex situations including:

  • When to consider claiming Social Security benefits
  • How being married, divorced or widowed can impact your benefits
  • How to potentially give your Social Security check a boost
  • How benefits for one spouse can be affected depending on many factors, including when and how the other spouse files

This presentation will help to educate you on the many decisions involved in claiming Social Security benefits, as well as their consequences, and suggest strategies that can offer an opportunity to maximize the benefits received.

This seminar is hosted by Investment Services at First Community and open to anyone.

Drinks and light refreshments provided.

After the film we'll spend time in the newly-redesigned and updated "Museum of Westward Expansion" and visit the gift shop. (We will not be going up in the Arch.) After visiting the Arch we'll enjoy a delicious lunch of salad, chicken florentine, pasta, bread and cannoli on the Hill at Lorenzo's Trattoria. We'll then stop by the Old St. Louis Courthouse, which dates back to the 1850's and was the site of the Dred Scott Slavery Case. Our last stop of the day is the newly-restored Soldiers' Memorial building.

Please note: There is a fair amount of walking on this trip. Trip will go on rain or shine. Cost includes tour guide, all tours, lunch at Lewis and Clark's, gratuities, motorcoach transportation.
