Original Message This new budget bill will significantly impact the retirement plans of many individuals nearing or in retirement. Beginning in 2016, the bill would stop the benefits of spouses, divorced spouses or children on the work record of a spouse, ex-spouse or parent who has suspended his or her Social Security benefit with the plan of restarting their benefit later. This strategy is often referred to as the “file and suspend” strategy. However, these recent changes eliminate the said strategy effective May 2016 for all future retirees

If you have not planned to use “file and suspend” or implemented this Social Security strategy, you might just be saying “so what?” But as financial planners who pride themselves in helping clients optimize their retirement income, congress has just undone tens of thousands of optimized retirement plans across this nation, especially for those who do not reach full retirement age by May of 2016. They will not be grandfathered in and are directly affected in an adverse way by these changes. What these Social Security changes effectively do is to possibly cause couples to file for their own benefits earlier than they would have under the old rules in order to meet their retirement spending needs. For many, this loss can be a significant portion of their total retirement income.
