5:40 am
kurt: if they want to implement that filing and getting the spousal benefit they need to take a look at the numbers and evaluate whether that makes sense in their situation. or if there is a significant age difference between the spouses that doesn't make sense to do that, so this whole idea doesn't really apply to them. it is important to analyze your income sources, take a look at how you expect retirement and income to flow into your situation and make some determinations about how you can max out social security benefits in light of your personal situation. >> what you say to those that are asking a social securityk will be around by retirement? kurt: that is in the back of many minds. legislators are saying we know we have problems here, just them a graphically.

benefits than are paying in which doesn't bode well for the system. this is one way they could tighten up the provisions that will end up saving social security's trust funds. stay tuned, we don't know what else they may have planned. the security people should gravitate to is knowing their own situation and where the income streams will come from. then using reasonable projections about what may be available from social security. it is important to do your own planning and make sure you have income sources that are diverse for that stage of life. >> thank you for your advice and if you have questions you would like them to answer contact him at compass financial services in west des moines. it is also online at

6:29 am
spouse could come in and claim spousal benefit under their earnings record. that particular provision as we understand it, is expiring may 2, 2016. this is a very important piece for those who are close to filing for social security to take note of. visit with their financial advisor or cpa and make sure that if there is a deadline coming up, that they are planning to file anyway. they may want to really consider taking a peek at that prior to may 2. elizabeth: what kind of changes are you recommending for them? kurt: if they still want to try to implement that filing, suspending, and getting spousal benefit they really want to take a look at the numbers and evaluate whether that makes sense in their situation, or sometimes if there is a significant age difference between the spouses it does not make sense to do that.
6:30 am
very important to analyze your income sources, take a look at how you expect retirement income to flow into your situation, and make some determination about how you can max out your social security benefit in light of your personal situation. elizabeth: what do you say to people who are saying, will social security be around when i retire? kurt: this is one step toward our legislators saying, we know we have problems here demographically. there are more people receiving benefit and are paying in. it does not bode well for the system down the road. there is one way they could tighten up a couple of the provisions which would end up saving the social security trust fund some dollars, so stay tuned. we do not know what else they may have planned down the road but again, the security that
6:31 am
knowing their own situation, knowing where their income streams are going to come from, and using reasonable projections about what may be available from social security. it is important to do your own planning and make sure you have income sources that are very diverse. elizabeth: thank you for your advice. contact kurt pearson anytime at compass financial services at 32 1-1020 and online at compass iowa.com. alyx: coming up after the break.

7:25 am
of these changes. kurt: with the budget bill that was recently passed by congress, we are learning of some of the benefits that were available under social security have had a sunset clause put to them. so what that means, for those who are full retirement age, there used to be a benefit where they could file for their benefit, suspend their benefit, and the spouse could come in and claim spousal benefit under their earnings record. i know that is kind of technical and detail oriented. that particular provision as we understand it, is expiring may 2, 2016. so this is a very important piece for those who are close to filing for social security to take note of. visit with their financial advisor or cpa and make sure that if there is a deadline coming up, that they are planning to file anyway. they may want to really consider taking a peek at that prior to
7:26 am
elizabeth: what kind of changes are you recommending for them? kurt: if they still want to try to implement that filing, suspending, and getting spousal benefit they really want to take a look at the numbers and evaluate whether that makes sense in their situation, or sometimes if there is a significant age difference between the spouses it does not make sense to do that. and so this whole idea does not really apply to them. very important to analyze your income sources, take a look at how you expect retirement income to flow into your situation, and then make some determination about how you can max out your social security benefit in light of your personal situation. elizabeth: what do you say to people who are saying, will social security be around when i retire? kurt: this is one step toward our legislators saying, we know we have problems here
7:27 am
there are more people receiving benefit van are paying in. -- van are paying in. -- than are paying in. it does not bode well for the system down the road. there is one way they could tighten up a couple of the provisions which would end up saving the social security trust fund some dollars, so stay tuned. we do not know what else they may have planned down the road but again, the security that people should gravitate to is knowing their own situation, knowing where their income streams are going to come from, and using reasonable projections about what may be available from social security. it is important to do your own planning and make sure you have income sources that are very diverse. elizabeth: thank you for your advice. if you have questions you would like him to answer contact him
7:28 am
