David Giertz, President of Nationwide Life Insurance Company’s financial distribution and sales department recently sat down with Veronica Dagner, a columnist with the Wall Street Journal about Social Security. He talked about how financial advisors really need to talk to their clients about Social Security. There has been a lot of misunderstanding about how Social Security works and what benefits clients should expect from it.
Social Security Covers Minimum Expenses
Retirees and those who are expecting to retire within the next few years already have some understanding that social security won’t cover all their expenses. It is important to note that social security was only meant to be a safety net for those who are unable to support themselves. A good retirement plan will have resources from various funds on wsj.com.
Giertz explained that complicated rules covering Social Security as part of the reason why some financial advisors avoid the topic with their clients on CNBC.com. He cited a survey done by Nationwide Retirement Institute of retirees and future retirees to prove this point.
Social Security Benefits-Factors for Determining Amounts
In that Nationwide survey 86 percent of future retirees had limited understanding of the factors surrounding the amount of money they would receive from Social Security. David Giertz emphasized that financial advisors should factor in the risks involved with taking Social Security at 62 rather than waiting until they become eligible for full benefits.
David Giertz advises that people should basically not take their Social Security benefits until they are eligible for the full benefits. Understandably there are certain circumstances where taking Social Security benefits at 62 is prudent and necessary.
The reason at https://wallethub.com/profile/david-luther-giertz-13215042i/ is that they could potentially leave thousands of dollars “on the table” that could be used. He suggests that financial advisors that avoid talking about Social Security will lose clients.

Julie Zuckerberg is a New York law school graduate, who completed her undergraduate studies at Brooklyn College- The City University of New York. She went on to a career in Executive Recruitment. Currently, serving as Vice President and Executive Lead of Talent and Acquisition for Deutsche Bank, New York. In her free time, Julie volunteers with groups related to human rights advocacy and others dedicated to seeing after the welfare of animals.
Seems like a lot for anyone to handle, because all areas require forward thinking, keen insight and conscious awareness. But, Julie also finds a way to maintain her sense of humor. Although her Twitter account is private, she does display a notion of not taking herself too seriously with the line beneath her profile, which reads: “will work for cookies.”
It’s important to have a lighthearted attitude, yet always get the right people into the right career position. Something that Julie Zuckerberg demonstrated a knack for early on, beginning in 2002, her career started with Hudson Staffing and Recruiting. She would continue working as Director of Candidate Placement for five years before switching to Citi Bank; and staying there for six years, first as an Executive Recruiter and then as Vice President and Managing Director.
New York is a hotbed for social activities of all sorts and Julie Zuckerberg is also invested in arts and culture. What’s particularly interesting about Julie is that unlike other Philosophy majors, she didn’t end up in a “psychotherapy” type of career. Typically, millennials are called “the lost generation.” But, Julie didn’t stray off the career path after completing her Bachelor Degree program, she instead went straight to law school. Which is an excellent choice, given her undergraduate area of concentration.
At Citi Bank, Julie put her Philosophy studies to good use, while negotiating recruitment placement offers for her clients. A person who recruits executive talent, is sometimes informally referred to as a, “headhunter.” Being a headhunter, means that you have to consistently choose the best talent. It takes someone who isn’t afraid of negotiating and can follow through on leads. Placement involves either temporary, temp-to-permanent or permanent positions in careers such as paralegals, attorneys, and support staff for financial institutions and legal firms.
In her current position at Deutsche, Julie Zuckerberg is still involved in placement and recruitment. But, she has more responsibilities as the senior level executive. Her duties include acquisition of global talent, which is much harder because it requires strategic negotiations to convince an organization to hire someone with a contract governance. When working with a recruiter, clients are often hired on a contingency basis, for the person and the organization both to undergo a trial working period, to find a good fit. Julie Zuckerberg had to build a solid reputation as a recruiter first to be entrusted with such responsibilities as Senior Level Manager and Executive Leader. This is an innate talent, something that can’t be taught at an institution of higher learning.

WEN is a product of extinction and elegance. When a woman washes her hair with the cleansing conditioning product she receives thick and shiny hair. This is a direct result of the Wen product repairing damage from the cheap shampoos women put in their hair. The Wen helps by washing out the chemicals that leave hair lifeless. It removes and strips the junk that has built up in a woman’s hair and it needs to come out of the hair. Wen leaves only all natural ingredients in the hair.
The conditioner can improve the health of your hair. Wen is a wonderful product for people with thin hair because it increases the volume in the hair making it look thicker. Wen is sold on QVC. Chaz Dean has several different products and scents to make anyone happy. The products are in use in Chaz’s own private salon. He uses these products to cleanse and style his customers’ hair when they come into the salon. His client list is long and is very impressive. Movie stars, comedians, singers, and other artists are among his impressive client list. Bel Air is a great place to open a shop and Hollywood is a good place to have one as well. Dean hopes his new address will be more convenient for celebrities and clients to come to.
Chaz Dean, http://chazdean.com/, produced Wen because other shampoos were weighing hair down. He got tired of the bad results he was getting and chose to use his knowledge of cosmetology to improve the products he uses. Wen has products with different smells to entice the nose. Sweet Almond and Fig mint are a couple of the new smells for the holidays. Lavender and pomegranate are two of the fruit and floral smells that can leave hair smelling sweet. Bamboo green tea, cucumber aloe and apple spice increase the holiday senses people love.
A litigator is the lawyer who represents defendants and plaintiffs before judges in civil court cases. They handle the process of bringing a case to court and seeing it through to its conclusion. There are several phases of a court case that they handle which includes pre-trial, discovery (where each side investigates the facts of a case and gathers evidence), as well as arguing their client’s case in the trial itself. After the trial is complete the litigator also handles the settlement of the case. Also, if the other side files an appeal, than the litigator will handle that as well.
