“CHANGES in SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS and PITFALLS IN FILING STRATEGIES”.  This Lecture is about recent changes in Social Security retirement benefits and the potential pitfalls in filing strategies.

The lecture is offered under the banner of “Money Matters”, a series of free financial education lectures offered to the general public by Eduard H van Raay, MBA, registered Financial Advisor.

 

For most people, social security retirement income is the single most important source of income. The lecture covers the important aspect of planning for this income and the latest changes in the law.

The Bipartisan Budget of Act of 2015 ended certain popular advanced claiming strategies for social   security retirement benefits and highlighted the need to more carefully evaluate how and when to file.

Equally important, the lecture will address the often negative financial consequences of filing early.

 

Only this past July, the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau published some startling figures derived from the SSA’s 2013 data. It appears that 75% of claimants filed early (i.e. between 62 and 65), and that only 12% of Americans reported that they understood the relation between benefits and claiming age.  These data only add to the notion that people are losing benefits because they are not fully informed about the recent social security benefit changes, nor fully understand the filing process itself and the factors that should impact their decision.

Author Talk – Got What It Takes? with Bill Boggs

Join the East Hampton Library as we sit down with author Bill Boggs, as he discusses his book “Got What It Takes? Successful People Reveal How They Made It to the Top.” Four-time Emmy winner Boggs hosted the New York Talk Show Midday Live with Bill Boggs for Metromedia and FOX. He created and hosted Bill Boggs’ Corner  Table on the Food Network, and the syndicated series “Comedy Tonight.” He has hosted shows on  CBS-TV, NBC-TV, ABC-TV, SHOWTIME, PBS and The Travel Channel.. Bill has interviewed an impressive array of “winners” during his long year career, including presidents, international leaders, athletes, writers, movie stars and moguls. In writing his book, he set out to define the factors that determine success. He spoke to 44 individuals and got 44 versions of “what it takes” to reach the top. The talk is a primer on how anyone can approach their career, the professional challenges they face, the adversity in their path and prevail. Incidentally, Boggs will be performing his acclaimed comedic play, “Talk Show Confidential: Confessions of a Talk Show Host” on August 25th, 8 pm, Guild Hall.

So You Self Published – Now What? with author Jeff Nichols

All three of Jeff Nichols’ self-published books got press and were optioned for bigger things. One made it all the way to the big screen.

So how does the self publishing author do it?
Jeff’s talk will include how to choose an editor, what is the difference between an editor and a professional reader, how to upload a book on Amazon and Kindle for free, how to get friends to do covers for free/pay, how to get paid speaking gigs, how to get on NPR, how to run a successful book signing and how to deal with independent book stores.
