How Your Pension May Reduce or Eliminate Your Social Security Benefits- Episode 118

It’s a common scenario: you decide to take your Social Security early, maybe age 62 or 63, and then at age 65 you’ll begin taking your pension benefits.  You’ve already calculated what both your Social Security and pension payments will be, and so you set up your budget and your lifestyle accordingly.

But once your pension benefits kick in at age 65, you find out, maybe too late, that your Social Security payments have been reduced — or even eliminated.  All of your careful planning is out the window, and now you have to figure out how to get by.

This can happen to people who aren’t aware of the rules regarding Social Security benefits and certain pension payments.  Find out more about what to expect, and how to deal with it, along with some information on the rather large increase in the COLA for Social Security, from podcast host Johnny Dean and his guest, “Professor” Rick Plum, CFP® on this week’s episode of Managing Your Financial Future!
