As the population of the United States ages, tax practitioners will be asked to advise their individual clients with respect to when they should begin to take Social Security benefits. This program will provide you with the background to knowledgeably discuss the benefit options available to Social Security beneficiaries and alternative payment options available to married couples, dependents, a surviving spouse, and a divorced individual.

  • Selecting the most advantageous option for taking Social Security benefits
  • Is there a best age to start taking Social Security benefits?
  • How to maximize Social Security benefit payments to surviving spouses
  • How can a divorced spouse collect Social Security benefits based on the work record of a former spouse?
