Joe and Al discuss how retirement planning can help you avoid risks and a keep you out of a retirement saving crisis. Find out if you should be taking advantage of these soon-to-disappear Social Security claiming strategies.

3:56 “Waiting for triggers in the overall market for you to make decisions financially is not the right move; you have to get your strategy in place now”

8:37 “Things have got to change and you really need to put things in perspective and start planning as soon as you possibly can”

10:32 “When it comes to these new [Social Security] rules, you have to act now. Let me explain what they are—there are two benefits that are going away”

13:14 “If you turned 62 years of age by 12/31/15, you still qualify to take that restricted application. You can take it on an ex-spouse as long as you were married to that ex-spouse for ten years, or if you are currently married”

18:06 “File and suspend is going away and you’ve got until April 28 to do this”

22:41 ““If you’re married, it’s a really good idea for the spouse who has the highest benefit to wait as long as they can, hopefully to age 70. Why is that? First of all, while you’re both living, you’ll enjoy that higher benefit, and when one of you passes (let’s say the higher wage earner passes), then the spouse will get the survivor benefit which is equal to the same as the spouse that passed away”

34:18 “Tapping your retirement nest egg comes with all sorts of new rules and opportunities. Instead of contributing to tax-deferred accounts that reduce your taxes, you’ll start tapping those savings for income and paying taxes at your regular rate—unless you’re tapping into a Roth IRA, which we want you to be thinking about right now”
