James Mahaney, vice president, Strategic Initiatives, Prudential Financial, author of a updated Prudential white paper on social security strategies - “Innovative Strategies to Help Maximize Social Security Benefits”

Steve Sass, Associate Director, Center for Retirement Research, Boston College will highlight the importance of Social Security and why delaying Social Security is an important tactic in leveraging retirement nest egg;
Cindy Hounsell, President, Women’s Institute for a Secure Retirement (WISER) will explore why these strategies are especially important for women to improve their long-term financial security;
Jean Setzfand, Vice President, Financial Security, AARP will address how the advocacy organization is using information and online tools to ramp up members’ knowledge about Social Security; and
George Castineiras, senior vice president, Total Retirement Solutions, Prudential Retirement will moderate and discuss the role of Social Security in retirement planning.

BACKGROUND: Limited understanding of the social security program is leading individuals to miss out on the full value of the lifetime benefits they could be eligible to receive, according to Prudential’s “Innovative Strategies to Help Maximize Social Security Benefits” white paper which will be launched at the event. With over 70 percent of retirees electing to start receiving reduced Social Security benefits prior to their full retirement age and women, in particular, electing to receive individual worker benefits, rather than spousal benefits at retirement age, many Americans are missing out on the ability to collect higher benefits over their lifetimes.
