Carl & John Zeidler with Wall Street Financial Group, Inc. Interviewed About Social Security Claiming Options

Wall Street Financial Group helps clients address their financial picture using insurance products, such as fixed annuities and various investment products, to help build financial strategies. From tax-efficient strategies to investment advice to protecting assets — they cover as many bases as possible to help their clients create a strategy that supports their retirement lifestyle and long-term financial goals.




During the interview, Carl and John discuss how Wall Street Financial Group takes a different approach than many financial planning and asset management organizations because they use their fiduciary responsibility to provide solid retirement advice.

Because Social Security is a necessary part of a comprehensive retirement income strategy, there are important considerations before choosing to claim benefits. Working with a financial professional is crucial in coordinating these types of benefits.

Carl and John said, “We value long-standing relationships, and getting to know you allows us to craft a financial plan for you that provides the most viable options to help you reach and exceed your retirement goals. Our proprietary Financial Roadmap™ process helps you navigate through your retirement with confidence by addressing four key pillars: Income Plan, Investment Plan, Tax-Efficient Strategies, Estate Planning.”
