As seniors approach retirement they will need to make important decisions about when and how to collect their Social Security benefits. At 70 ½, they will have to take a Required Minimum Distribution (RMD) from their tax-deferred accounts, like IRAs or 401(k)s. Missing deadlines can carry hefty penalties and making the wrong choice can potentially mean a lot less income in retirement.

Worry no more. Our easy-to-use guides walk you through the information you need to know to optimize your Social Security benefits and take your RMDs.
