Joshua Houle, Partner and Wealth Manager at Steward Partners Global Advisory, LLC. in Keene, gave an informative talk on Social Security benefits.  There are more than 2,700 rules and regulation that govern Social Security benefits and payments.  Joshua made it clear that because there are numerous options, each individual and their spouse should do research to determine which retirement/payment scenario will maximize Social Security payments before signing up for the program.   The message was loud and clear - do your research so won’t leave money on the table.
