LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwired - May 2, 2013) - Social Security Solutions, Inc., creators of the popular Social Security Analyzer software for financial professionals, was recently named the best software in the Social Security income planning niche by Investment News.
Consistent with other technology analysts, Davis Janowski, Technology Columnist for Investment News, stated in his article Making Social Security Claiming Strategies a Little Easier, "...Social Security Analyzer is, without a doubt, the Lamborghini of tools for analysis." He continues, "Analyzer includes a very robust reporting engine that is highly customizable."
The new pricing model announced May 1 by Social Security Solutions allows professionals to select a level of functionality within the software that will best fit their practice needs. Advisors can now have access to the software for as little as $300.
"We wanted to create an alternative to our product offering that would give access to our comprehensive software to professionals in smaller practices or who have fewer clients nearing retirement," stated Bill Meyer, Founder and CEO of Social Security Solutions, Inc.
The Social Security Analyzer Premier subscription still remains the best value for practitioners. Offering features such as advanced modeling, detailed tax calculation, the earnings test, and access to their innovative mortality map, the Premier subscription also includes unlimited access to the Social Security helpdesk. Staffed with certified financial planners, investment advisors and other Social Security experts, the helpdesk is available to discuss difficult client cases, custom claiming strategies, interpreting the rules of Social Security, and more.
"The rules of Social Security are overwhelming, and understanding how they can impact and benefit each of your clients is hard," Meyer said. "Access to our experts is a valuable service you will need as your clients ask difficult questions."
For professionals who have a need for fewer features and less functionality, the Social Security Analyzer Plus level will still provide access to the most robust and accurate logic available, the ability to create custom strategies and the use of benefits and tax calculators. However, the Plus level does not include access to the staff of experts at Social Security Solutions.
The base model of the software will render for advisors a primary strategy that maximizes cumulative lifetime benefits for clients, and allows side-by-side comparisons with other default strategies produced by the software. This level of subscription does not allow custom strategies, nor does it include the powerful analytical tools of the Premier version or access to the company's Social Security experts.
The common feature of all three subscription levels is the presentation-ready client report. Social Security Solutions, Inc. has invested much in report generation. Each client report is personalized to the client and gives the financial professional sound talking points to review with each client. Because of the dynamic text within the report that is specific to each client, the advisor can easily understand the strategy and how to help the client achieve the desired results.
The software is priced at $1,200 for Premier, $850 for Analyzer Plus and $300 for Analyzer base subscription; however, promotional pricing is being offered on the Premier subscription at $1,000 and on the Analyzer Plus at $650. The software can be purchased at www.SSAnalyzer.com.
