Social Security: Important Updates for 2023
- Registration Closed
As we usher in 2023, the annual Social Security ”automatic determinations” that affect benefits and an historically high COLA are set to begin in January. Proposed Congressional modifications to strengthen and extend the longevity of the program are being considered for the first time in many years. And at RSSA, we are finalizing development of our new Social Security based self-employment tax and retirement analysis tool, SETARA, and adding more resources for our analysts. Join us for this informative presentation and learn how you can become the Social Security expert in your community!
1) Explain how clients qualify for Social Security benefits and how benefits are calculated, including reductions and credits applied depending on age of claiming,
2) Identify the factors that affect a client's optimal date to begin receiving benefits and the impact of the earnings test, and
3) Describe the rules related to spousal and survivor benefits, taxation of Social Security benefits and the affect a pension may have on Social Security benefits.
