The NPEPC welcomes Guest Speaker...Kurt Czarnowski
As 75 million Baby Boomers approach retirement age, they are beginning to realize that Social Security is going to play a bigger part in their retirement than they had previously thought. But they are also starting to recognize that they don’t know as much about the system as they should, and they are looking to financial service professionals for answers.
Kurt Czarnowski, the Social Security Administration’s former Regional Communications Director for New England, will help you provide the “value added” that clients and prospects are looking to you to deliver. He will cover topics such as when you can start to collect, spousal and survivor benefits, the impact of working in retirement, and, most importantly, several strategies that couples can employ to maximize their Social Security benefits.
Kurt Czarnowski is currently the principal in “Czarnowski Consulting,” a retirement planning company which provides “Expert Answers to Your Social Security Questions.” (www.CzarnowskiConsulting.com)
