SAN DIEGO, Aug. 18, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Lucia Capital Group, a family of companies in the wealth advice, asset management, and investment distribution spaces, today announced that its online personal finance media platform, www.wealthed.com ("WealthEd"), had more than 1,100 registrants for its special Social Security Summer School webcast on July 29.
Due to its popularity, WealthEd has made this webcast available on demand at wealthed.com/special/social-security-summer-school for those who missed it.
Founded in 2013, WealthEd delivers actionable wealth education to investors across the country. Offering original, live programming each weekday, on-demand video clips, and special webcast events like Social Security Summer School, WealthEd offers a free platform connecting individual investors with investment professionals (who may be a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, Certified Public Accountant, Chartered Financial Consultant®, Chartered Financial Analyst®, investment advisor representative, or portfolio manager).
In this particular webcast, Lucia Capital Group professionals taught viewers how to plan various Social Security strategies, addressing a variety of topics such as longevity risk, spouses with different income levels, the timing of benefits, filing, and more.
"WealthEd's original programming and special webcasts like Social Security Summer School have one sole aim: to help educate millions of Americans about the importance of financial planning and taking action," said Raymond J. Lucia Jr., chairman of Lucia Capital Group. "Social Security sounds simple on the surface, but it's actually quite complex—and for most Americans, it's a key component of their overall retirement income need. Our webcasts give individual investors the ability to get to know our company and team of financial advisors, so by the time they're ready to engage us, they already feel like part of the firm. And our financial advisors benefit too—by participating in our shows, they are building their own media personalities they're able to share with clients and referrals. Most importantly, our advisors get to spend more time doing what they enjoy most—growing our business and delivering financial advice—because WealthEd generates appointments for them."
Lucia Capital Group is currently seeking growth-oriented financial advisors committed to serving those individuals seeking professional advice from the WealthEd platform. To find out more information, contact Derek Bruton at email@example.com.
