During an interview, David Giertz addressed the fact that many financial advisors fail to address social security with their clients. And one possible reason is the fact that social security related laws and rules are not only lengthy, but also challenging to clearly understand. He bases his findings on a survey conducted by National Financial Retirement Institute, which further indicates that clients may leave an advisor if they fail to mention social security, because it makes up to 40 percent of a retiree’s income according to Instagram.
