NEARING 65? WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT SOCIAL SECURITY, MEDICARE AND PRESCRIPTION DRUG COVERAGE

Guests:  Deb Harvey, co-founder of Retirement Specialists, LLC and Alex Harvey, Licensed Insurance Agent

There are 10,000 baby boomers a day turning 65. That means they have come of age to enter the world of Social Security, Medicare, supplemental insurance, and prescription drug coverage. If you are one of them, then you aren’t alone in seeking answers about those benefits that you have paid into for years and are about to reap. What are your options? How do you decide what is best for you?

On this program, Deb Harvey, co-founder of Retirement Specialists, LLC with offices in Sauk City, Reedsburg and Monona, describes how she and her fellow co-worker, Trish Vandre, applied their years of experience as legal advocates for Sauk County and started their own business to help people figure out what the right answers are for them. “The most well-meaning people give the worst advice,” says Deb Harvey. “It’s different for each person. People have indicated they were afraid to retire because they didn’t know where to begin.”

Also on the program is Alex Harvey, a Licensed Insurance Agent with Retirement Specialists. While the company does not charge a consulting fee nor require people to purchase products, they do have various products available.
