Pacific Life Introduces Social Security Educational Tools
A New Set of Resources for Engaging Clients in a Retirement Income Discussion

Newport Beach, Calif. (August 29, 2012)-Pacific Life has unveiled a new suite of Social Security educational tools to help financial professionals start the conversation with clients about retirement income. These non-product-specific resources focus on helping clients understand how to maximize their Social Security benefits and plan for additional sources of retirement income. Also included are relationship-building tools that help financial professionals guide their clients through the retirement income-planning process.

"Social Security is typically the first thing clients think about when they start to seriously consider retirement, so it's a natural lead-in to a more comprehensive retirement income conversation," says Christine Tucker, Pacific Life's vice president of marketing, Retirement Solutions Division.  "In addition, the large number of people who opt to take a reduced Social Security retirement benefit by claiming early-rather than waiting to full retirement age to receive their full benefit-indicates how much clients need Social Security information."

Pacific Life's new tools are the latest in an expanding line of resources designed to help financial professionals build client relationships and grow their practices. The resources include customizable prospecting communications such as a letter, seminar invitation, and a flyer; a PowerPoint presentation for use with clients; Social Security strategies to address specific needs; four financial calculators; an educational brochure on understanding Social Security basics; and more.
