Many employees are worried about whether or how much Social Security will be there for their retirement, and they often incorrectly estimate what their benefit will be. According to the Social Security Administration’s website, Social Security will replace about 40% of an employee’s pre-retirement income after retirement. It is important for employees to know this and to know how to maximize their benefit. In this edition of PLANSPONSOR Weekend, you will find information to help educate employees about including Social Security in retirement planning. Wishing everyone a safe and happy weekend!
