PENSACOLA, FL--(Marketwired - Jan 7, 2014) - SWAN Capital, (www.SWAN-Capital.com), which specializes in wealth management and retirement income, is presenting a Social Security Benefits 101 course at 6 p.m., Jan. 21 and Jan. 23 at Pensacola State College.
SWAN is headed by founder and CEO Andrew McNair, who has been fascinated by the potential for good innate within financial advisement since he was a teenager. At 22, he hosted his own radio show, What Your Money Would Say, and he has since created the Veteran Benefit Project, which assists vets and their families with securing benefits.
He's taking his message to retirees, who continue to grow in exponential numbers with the tidal wave of baby boomers turning 65.
"I went into this business because I hated seeing people who'd followed the rules -- saved money in a 401k, put their kids through college, gave to charity -- get to retirement and find they didn't have enough to sustain them for more than a few years," says Andrew McNair, author of "Don't be Penny Wise & Dollar Foolish."
"It's not enough to have a certain amount of money in your portfolio, you want to know you have a check coming in in addition to your investments."
Making smart decisions about when to claim Social Security benefits is part of an overall tax reduction strategy, McNair says. With 10,000 boomers turning 65 every day, and one in four of boomers expected to live past 90, according to the Social Security Administration, it's a constantly developing dynamic that should have everyone paying attention, he says.
"Among the New Year's resolutions, retirees and those planning to retire should make this the year to get their financial house in order," McNair says.
