Social Security Solutions to Help Retired and Active Military Maximize Their Benefits This Veterans' Day

LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwired - Nov 7, 2014) -  High risk, low pay; no more. Social Security Solutions, Inc. ( has announced its second annual Veterans' Day campaign to help retired and active military personnel maximize the Social Security benefits to which they're entitled. Taking place on Tuesday, Nov. 11, 2014, the initiative is meant to thank members of the military for their service, and is a continuation of the help over 10,000 soldiers, sailors, marines, and airmen sought last year. Seen as a resounding success, the sheer number of inquiries received illustrated the often-complicated nature of determining the proper Social Security claiming strategy when combined with a military pension.

"If anyone deserves the full amount of Social Security benefits they've earned, it is members of the military," notes Social Security Solutions founder and CEO William Meyer. "The right Social Security claiming strategy can often add tens-of-thousands of dollars to a retirement income portfolio. Conversely, if not taken in the right manner, it can have a devastating effect on even the best laid retirement plans. We are committed to ensuring that doesn't happen."

Software developed by the company employs hundreds-of-thousands of permutations to rapidly determine the optimal steps to successfully claim benefits. It's intuitive format and visual aids simplify complicated concepts which are then presented to the individual in a free, customized report, which veterans can access at

Meyer, along with the company's Head of Research Dr. William Reichenstein, are the most published experts on Social Security claiming strategies. They've been featured in leading consumer and industry publications such as The Wall Street Journal, Fortune Magazine, Morningstar, Kiplinger, and more. 

The software, found at, is based on several years of academic research performed by both Meyer and Dr. Reichenstein, who holds the Pat and Thomas R. Powers Chair in Investment Management at Baylor University. Published in the Journal of Financial Planning, the software analyzes Social Security rules that apply, compares scenarios for selecting benefits and recommends a claiming strategy to maximize the benefit payout.

"Canned, one-size-fits-all strategies rarely work, and are especially inappropriate for those who have served," Dr. Reichenstein explains. "Situations for recipients obviously differ, and require a more sophisticated method for creating strategies, which we provide."
