The decision about when to start taking Social Security is one of the most important financial security decisions someone can make. It’s no longer as simple as turning 62 and filing for the funds.
Brian Beaulieu, a chartered financial consultant at Allen Insurance and Financial, is offering workshops this spring to explain the steps to take to help reap the rewards of Social Security by pinpointing the best time for an individual and his or her spouse to start their benefits.
These workshops, all scheduled for noon to 1 p.m., are free and open to the public. There is no obligation to buy or sign up for anything.
Participants can bring a brown bag lunch; water will be provided.
Here is the schedule:
- Rockland: Tuesday, April 30. Maine Lighthouse Museum, Park Drive.
- Camden: Thursday, May 2. Camden Public Library.
- Belfast: Wednesday, May 8. Waldo County YMCA.
