Does Your Program Address Child Benefits?

My husband and I plan to retire and collect SS in the near future. My husband is two years ahead of me. We have two young grandchildren we have adopted. Does your program address the calculations associated with determining the best way to go..we are thinking earlier may be better due to the child benefit will be paid longer.


Yes. Child benefits can be calculated and considered in the analysis provided by our software ( It sounds like you should strongly consider using the software to fully analyze all of the various options available to you and your family so that you can determine the best strategy for maximizing your benefits.

Best, Jerry
