April was been designated as “Social Security Month.” To bring awareness to this important income source, we would like to share a client’s story and provide some information about Social Security. Joanne was in a nursing home, and it seemed as though she would not be able to leave any time soon. Eddy & Schein was called up to aid in the successful effort to bring her home. At that time, Gideon Schein was appointed her agent under power of attorney. When we onboard a new client, one of our initial activities is to identify sources of income. In doing so, we determined that Joanne was no longer receiving her Social Security checks.
