Frequently Asked Questions
Social Security is designed to provide a solid foundation and a basic level of financial security throughout your retirement. In the past, Social Security has been thought of as an "automatic" benefit with most individuals and couples simply signing-up for retirement benefits as soon as they reached 62.
- What is your Maximum Social Security GuaranteeSM?
- Our Maximum Social Security GuaranteeSM is our promise to you.
At Social Security AdvisorsSM, our slogan is “Maximizing Your Social Security” and we mean it! Our service always comes with our Maximum Social Security Guarantee which is as follows: we will identify a Social Security claiming strategy that adds at least $10,000 to your lifetime Social Security benefits vs. claiming Social Security as early as possible.
Additionally, we will refund any fees paid if you find an alternative Social Security Strategy would result in a larger lifetime benefit from the Social Security Administration under the same set of circumstances. Now that’s a guarantee!
The bottom line is that we only win if you win by obtaining your maximum Social Security benefit.
- Can't I just ask the Social Security Administration for free what I should do?
- No. By law, they are not allowed to provide you with specific recommendations based on your personal and unique circumstances. It is critical that your Maximum Social Security StrategySM be coordinated with the numerous personal and financial variables that need to be considered in making your decision.
You can obtain a great deal of general information from the Social Security Administration; they are a wonderful resource and they perform an important service administering Social Security on behalf of the American people. What they cannot provide is advice and it is custom advice that you need--advice that is geared towards your specific circumstances and objectives in order to Maximize Your Social SecuritySM. As the Social Security ExpertsSM, this is what we specialize in.

- I already work with a financial advisor; why should I seek advice from you in addition or instead?
- The bottom line is that Social Security is complex. It has taken us years of dedicated research and experience to develop the expertise that we have at Social Security AdvisorsSM. The unfortunate fact is that most financial advisors are not properly trained in the nuances and complicated rules-over 2,700 of them-that are contained within Social Security's Program Operations Manual System.
Basically, the majority of financial advisors don't have the Social Security-specific tools or in-depth knowledge required to help you maximize your Social Security. In general, it is a great idea to work with a financial advisor, however when it comes to Social Security it is important that you make sure that you are receiving the best advice possible.
We will gladly work with your financial advisor if you are already working with one and you can rest assured that our service is always backed by our Maximum Social Security GuaranteeSM.

- What forms of payment do you accept?
