Dave Giertz is Educating Clients on Retirement Planning
Dave Giertz is the President of Nationwide Financial Distributers at Nationwide Financial. Many people say that their financial advisors don’t really mention much about saving for retirement or social security to them when they are building their savings portfolio. Yet, 4 out of 5 people believe that it is important enough to know about social security that if their advisor wasn’t open about this issue that they should change advisors. David Giertz sites the complexity of the social security handbook and the 2700+ laws in it a reason as to why advisors are not addressing this with their investors. For some people, social security will be up to 40% of their retirement income, so it’s vital for investors to discuss this massive part of someone’s retirement life with them. Otherwise, if these advisors don’t talk about this stuff with people these people will also move on to new advisors who help them answer their retirement questions on ideamensch.com.
