- Why Social Security?
Tools to boost your knowledge & engage clients
With record numbers of Baby Boomers retiring, there is need for Social Security education — and great business growth opportunity for financial professionals who provide it.
Social Security is a critical factor in retirement planning—but one that can be overwhelming to many investors. Consider that:
- Social Security often replaces about 40% of pre-retirement income.1
- 74% of current retirees are receiving a reduced Social Security benefit.2
Listen to Joe Moklebust give his thoughts on engaging your clients in this critical conversation.
These findings reveal a gap in both income and knowledge — making Social Security education and planning a great opportunity for you to:
- Demonstrate your value as a trusted financial professional.
- Uncover additional assets through the retirement income planning process.
- Obtain referrals and grow your business.
