Tuesday, April 24 Jannsen+Company will host a workshop entitled “Savvy Social Security Planning” at the Jannsen Center, W239-N3490 Pewaukee Road beginning at 5:30 p.m. The event will examine strategies to boost Social Security income under the program’s benefit guidelines and explain how payments are calculated and the effect of other income on benefits. Social Security offers many opportunities for retired workers to supplement their income from the longstanding federal program. A well-planned strategy can greatly enhance recipients’ benefit levels. The seminar will also address many public perceptions – and misperceptions – about the health and longevity of the Social Security program. The seminar is free, but reservations are requested. Interested attendees should call Barb at (262) 513-9292, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
