The uncertainties of both an imminent presidential election and the long-term solvency of Social Security have pressured advisors to reassure their clients and deliver retirement income strategies that will create better outcomes. LifeYield LLC, the market leader in cloud-based solutions helping advisors maximize retirement income for their clients, today reports that advisors using LifeYield’s Social Security Advantage® tool between July 1, 2020, and Sept. 30, 2020, have added an average of $130,000 per client household in potential lifetime Social Security benefits.
To reach this average, LifeYield examined 17,099 anonymized reports from its largest partners in the third quarter of 2020. The average reflects the difference between clients’ initial Social Security filing strategies and the optimal strategies generated by LifeYield’s Social Security Advantage® tool. By following these individually tailored strategies, clients benefiting from LifeYield technology could realize a cumulative $2,298,611,569 in potential added retirement income during their lives.
“These figures are proof a software-based approach is the most intuitive and impactful way to reveal the next best action to clients, whether through the coordination of an entire household of assets or finding the best time to file for retirement benefits,” said Harry Bartle, EVP, Enterprise Sales. “The average of $130,000 per household in potential lifetime Social Security benefits identified in Q3 of 2020 speaks to the peace of mind advisors can deliver to clients with optimal filing strategies.”
LifeYield’s Social Security technology is used by some of the world’s leading financial institutions, including Allianz, Franklin Templeton, Jackson National, Merrill Lynch, New York Life and Personal Capital.
Since January 2020, LifeYield has identified approximately $7,662,819,070 in potential added Social Security benefits unlocked by advisors using its technology.
