David Giertz Provides Important Lessons About Social Security

During an interview in the recent past, Mr David Giertz, a renown financial adviser and expert widely gave relevant advice and directions on the best practices when it comes to matters relating to social security. He spoke of a study conducted by the Nationwide Financial Retirement Institute in which he stated that the findings proved that a considerable amount of people are receiving less retirement benefits than they had anticipated. Additionally, more people wish that their advisers could talk to them about social security.

He added that the study revealed that there were only few financial advisers who guided their clients on issues concerning social security which was contrary to expectations from the clients who had hopes of receiving some lessons. This had led to poor decision making on the side of the clients leading to acquiring the benefits very early on not knowing the consequences. A complete turn in practices he added would be very useful in helping push the agenda of providing better lessons in this field.
