In today’s fast-moving world — where information can be obtained seemingly anywhere — it’s more important than ever to deliver trusted information, especially when it comes to assisting employees and clients with their retirement plans. Since Social Security is only about 40% of an average retiree’s income, it needs to be supplemented with employer-sponsored retirement programs, personal investments, and savings.

The easy-to-understand 2024 Guide to Social Security provides clear and accurate information on Social Security covering retirement, disability, and survivor benefits. Some of the most common questions answered in the booklet, include:


  • What are the Social Security changes for 2024?
  • What is the full retirement age?
  • How do I apply for benefits?
  • How does the earnings limit reduce my benefit if I retire early?
  • How much more will I get if I delay retirement?

Your employees and clients are paying into Social Security today, and it will be a significant source of income for tomorrow. This guide will help them understand what to do and when to do it as they plan for their retirement.

Are you ready to help deliver all the Social Security benefits information people need for their retirement?
