NEW YORK, Sep. 8, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Horsesmouth and the Alliance for Lifetime Income will showcase some of the nation’s top Social Security educators during the Rolling Stones’ upcoming “No Filter” 2021 tour.
The Alliance, the sole sponsor of the Stones’ 12-city tour, is a non-profit consumer education organization devoted to helping Americans address the risk of outliving their retirement income. Horsesmouth helps financial professionals educate their clients and grow their businesses.
“We’re excited to support the Alliance to raise awareness about the role protected lifetime income plays in helping people achieve financial security in retirement,” said William T. Nicklin, CEO of Horsesmouth. “Social Security is the granddaddy of retirement security and we’re pleased to highlight top financial professionals who play critical roles in their communities educating the public about the best ways for them to claim Social Security.”
Nicklin said that financial professionals and experts from across the country who have developed their skills using the company’s Savvy Social Security Planning program will be featured by the Alliance at its activation sites outside the concert venues.
“Social Security is the world’s greatest retirement annuity but it’s never enough to achieve financial security,” Nicklin said. “That’s why it’s important that people maximize their claiming strategy and know exactly what additional income they’ll need to feel safe and secure in retirement.”
Financial professionals will also be eligible to participate in an Alliance-sponsored Stones tickets sweepstakes in each city of the No Filter tour and register to win one of two dozen annual memberships to Horsesmouth’s Savvy Social Security Planning program.
Since its introduction in 2008, the Savvy Social Security Planning program has been used by tens of thousands of financial professionals to educate themselves and millions of clients and community members on how to get the most out of Social Security and coordinate benefit claiming strategies with overall retirement planning. The impact of education has made a difference across the country. Since the launch of the program, the average benefit claiming age for retirees increased steadily for a decade, whereas it had been flat the decade prior.
The program includes foundational education resources for professionals and materials for educating clients and community members. The program’s critically acclaimed Social Security analytical tools suite enables professionals to estimate benefits and provide guidance on claiming strategies. The tools were rated tops in user satisfaction by thousands of financial professionals in the T3 Software Survey for 2021 among the major players in the Social Security planning segment (including vendors with market share greater than 1.5%).
For the most complex Social Security cases and claiming strategy questions, the team behind the Savvy Social Security Planning program provides personalized support via the program website. The team has answered over 17,500 such complex cases and inquiries for financial professionals in recent years.
Jean Statler, CEO for the Alliance, said that the Rolling Stones, with more than 50 years of playing rock and roll, were a perfect match for a campaign encouraging people to live the full life in retirement.
Statler said the Alliance’s partnership with Horsesmouth helps them extend their mission to help financial professionals create retirement income plans for clients that avoid the risk of outliving their retirement savings and provide more dependable income.
“As the sole sponsor of the Rolling Stones ‘No Filter’ tour, the Alliance for Lifetime Income can’t wait to hit the road with the band again this year,” said Statler. “We’ve all spent the past 18 months focused on protecting our health and fighting back a global pandemic. We’re excited to be a part of this iconic tour and one-of-a-kind show as we educate millions of Stones fans, now more than ever, about the need for protected income in retirement.”
