Who We Are

The Corporation for Social Security Claiming Strategies is the creator and provider of the training course for the Certified in Social Security Claiming Strategies designation (CSSCS). We offer students online access to the curriculum, affording them the opportunity to digest the materials at their own pace.  Students may choose to enroll solely in the educational course or couple the course materials with a comprehensive examination, successful completion of which will result in the CSSCS designation being conferred.  More about our program offerings can be found under the Programs heading above.

Ours is the only comprehensive retirement training organization in the financial services industry focused exclusively on educating professionals on the nuances of Social Security retirement planning. Our paramount goal is to provide our students with a working knowledge of the myriad of factors that play a role in determining how retirees can achieve the maximum benefit available to them from Social Security and, in so doing, provide a solid foundation upon which an overall retirement income plan can be built.

In an attempt to mainstream message the power of alternative Social Security claiming strategies, many people in the financial services community have sought to simplify and compartmentalize the various complexities of the Social Security retirement system. Attempting to boil down nearly 3,000 filing rules and hundreds of potential filing strategies tends to minimize the role competent advisors can play in the high stakes world of comprehensive retirement income planning.

The knowledge you’ll gain coupled with the tools and training our program provides, as well as access to our team of experts, allows advisors to embrace the complexity of the Social Security retirement system as a key differentiator in the day to day battle of client acquisition!
