“Filing for Social Security: Flexibility and Choices for Your Retirement Income” will be the topic of a free presentation at the Newport 60+ Activity Center on Tuesday, March 19, from noon to 1 p.m. The presenter will be Duane Silbernagel, a financial advisor with Waddell & Reed, Inc.
Social Security is the country’s single largest federal program and the sole means of support for many retirees. Many people may not know that it offers a high level of flexibility to optimize one’s retirement income needs, and Silbernagel invites people to learn about Social Security’s unexpected options.
Silbernagel grew up in Scio and moved to Lincoln County with his wife in 2010. He earned a bachelor’s degree in civil engineering from the Oregon Institute of Technology and worked in that field for three years before becoming a financial advisor. He says, “So much of what I do is outside the investing aspect of my capabilities. I help people put together their financial plan, outlining where they are now, where they want to go and the avenues to try and reach those goals. In my experience, these concerns grow more prevalent as one approaches retirement.”
This educational presentation about Social Security filing options includes ample opportunity for questions.
The Newport 60+ Activity Center is located at 20 SE Second St. Those who are interested in attending the presentation are asked to RSVP to Silbernagel at 541-614-1322 or [email protected] by Friday, March 15.
