Areas of Practice
Social Security represents a primary source of income for many retirees. The exact amount of your benefits will depend on the length of time you've worked, your earnings, and your age when you start receiving benefits. You can begin collecting benefits at age 62, but your monthly benefits throughout your retirement will be about 20% to 30% less than the full retirement benefit, depending on your birth date.
Medicare is health insurance for people 65 or older, people under 65 with certain disabilities, and people with End-Stage Renal Disease (ESRD) (permanent kidney failure requiring dialysis or a kidney transplant).
When you retire, you'll need to decide what to do with the money in your employer-sponsored retirement plan. Whether you have a pension plan, a 401(k) or 403(b) plan, a SEP-IRA, or some combination of these, you have various options for withdrawing the money you have accumulated.
prescription drug plans
If you decide not to join a Medicare drug plan when you are first eligible, and you don't have other creditable prescription drug coverage, or you don't get Extra Help, you'll likely pay a late enrollment penalty if you join later.
other income sources
In addition to ongoing income from Social Security and employer plans, many retirees work in addition to purchasing annuities to generate more retirement income. If you are working in retirement, you should be aware of the potential impact your earnings can have on your Social Security benefits and your tax situation. Some retirees turn to annuities where you purchase the annuity with a lump-sum payment and, in return, you (or you and your spouse) receive regular, guaranteed income payments for life.
long term care
Long term care is something many people will need as they age. This can impact people and families in many different ways. Many of these impacts can be managed more effectively with planning. A long term care strategy can help families and individuals formalize their wants, needs and goals.
