Social Security Solutions to Aid Recipients in Wake of Social Security Administration Closures

LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwired - Jun 26, 2014) - In a rapid response to major news from the Social Security Administration (SSA), Social Security Solutions, the leader in Social Security software and research, announced that the company's innovative Social Security assistance package is now available.

According to a congressional report released on June 18, 2014, SSA has closed 64 field offices since 2010, the largest five-year decline in field offices in its 79-year history. Blaming budget cuts, the agency has also closed 533 temporary mobile offices that serve remote areas, as well as laid off 11,000 workers over the last three years. For the field offices that are still open, hours of operation have been reduced.

The cuts come as demand for its services has significantly increased as baby boomers prepare for retirement. The result will be longer hold times, reduced services and increased frustration, according to the bipartisan report.

"It couldn't come at a worse time," explains Bill Meyer, founder and managing principal of Social Security Solutions. "This is a demographic that will largely want to speak with someone in person or over the phone about their Social Security benefits. Too many fail to realize that SSA workers cannot make recommendations or give advice, so now the cuts in service will come as a double shock."

The company offers personalized, one-on-one help to ensure individuals and couples get the maximum Social Security benefit to which they're entitled, all at one convenient, low price. The service includes: a personalized recommendation, detailed custom report, analysis and diagnostic checks, interactive tools, compare and create scenarios, session with an expert, claiming questions answered, assistance during the filing process and priority response. 

"With over 70,000 claiming strategies from which to choose, individuals and couples can become confused and overwhelmed," adds Diane Wilson, director of financial planning for Social Security Solutions. "More people are relying on Social Security for a majority of their income in retirement. A mistake could be devastating, and that's why we're here."

(www.SocialSecuritySolutions.com) delivers advice and education about Social Security retirement benefit claiming strategies to consumers and practitioners. Social Security Solutions, Inc. leverages its expertise, research and technology to help clients determine the best strategy for collecting benefits in line with their overall retirement goals.
