Reverse Mortgage Funding LLC (RMF) Offers Guides for Consumers and Financial Professionals on Social Security’s Biggest COLA Adjustment in 40 Years
RMF publishes twin guides (consumer and business oriented) – freely available to the public – offering general policy information and strategies for maximizing social security benefits
BLOOMFIELD, NJ/ACCESSWIRE/January 26, 2022/ Today, Reverse Mortgage Funding, LLC (RMF) released two free guides for consumers and financial professionals on how to maximize Social Security benefits. The Social Security Administration recently announced a 5.9% Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) for 2022, increasing average monthly payments by nearly $100. The 2022 COLA adjustment is the largest increase in Social Security checks in 40 years and could affect more than 60 million Americans per month.
Many seniors preparing for retirement are unfortunately not prepared to maximize their retirement benefits. 68% of workers over the age of 50 do not know their full retirement age, and of these, 62% believe they are entitled to full Social Security benefits sooner than they are actually, which can lead to claiming benefits sooner than necessary, which permanently reduces check totals by up to 30%.
“The 2022 COLA adjustment is an important announcement that affects everyone who is collecting or will soon be collecting Social Security benefits,” said Kurt Czarnowski, former regional director of communications for the Social Security Administration (SSA) in New England and consultant social security expert for RMF. . “The cost-of-living adjustment will likely raise many questions for retirees about whether the benefit increase will support their long-term retirement plan. Knowing how to maximize their benefits is more important than ever for seniors.
Consumers can download the digital guide at reversefacts.com/ssguide. Financial professionals can download their free digital guide through RetirementExpertsNetwork.com-RMF’s free online educational platform for advisors and planners.
“I strongly encourage all seniors and financial professionals to learn how to maximize their Social Security benefits by reading RMF’s comprehensive, free guides to better plan for a successful retirement,” adds Czarnowski. “Most retirees don’t know all the factors that determine their maximum benefit, which could cost them dearly. The most common mistakes are taking unprofessional advice, applying for benefits sooner than necessary, checking rates anticipated taxes based on the amount of the benefit and supplemental income, not verifying the accuracy of your annual Social Security income statements, not planning as couples, and more.”
RMF is committed to guiding older Americans to make their imagined retirement lifestyle a reality and in the comfort of their own home. In keeping with the company’s commitment to providing exceptional customer support, straightforward guidance, and ensuring an exceptional customer experience, RMF recently announced that it has lowered the minimum age requirement to 55+ in select states.* for its exclusive Equity Elite® reverse mortgage product.
