This was a complimentarty dinner seminar given to help our guests find a better understanding of when and from where they will receive their income upon retirement. One of the most important hases of retirement planning is understanding Social Security benefits. Social Security is a retirement income source with some control and a variety of selections. Marsha's goal is to remove the confusion and mystery, which seems to surround the Social Security world. She explains the common misconceptions, as well as how to properly coordinate benefits with your spouse and other sources of income. Nothing is sold at her workshops, and we encourage everyone to sit back, relax and learn!
