Albany, NY, November 18, 2015 – Internationally recognized US social security expert Brian Doherty and learning sciences software pioneer sageCrowd, announced today that they have partnered to deliver a training course based on Doherty's award-winning book, Getting Paid to Wait. The course is a methodology that delivers simple, yet sophisticated social security claiming strategies to aid financial advisors and their clients.
“We are very pleased that the book has been so well received,” says Doherty, award-winning author and social security expert. “Essentially I wrote Getting Paid to Wait to help the 75 million baby boomer retirees make better choices in one of the most critical areas of retirement planning: Social Security Claiming Strategies.
