David Giertz Discusses Misconceptions About Social Security and Retirement

Retirement is something every working citizen looks forward to when they reach retirement age 62 or full retirement age 65. In a 2016 Nationwide Retirement Institute Study, people who have reached retirement age and those who were near retirement had misconceptions about their social security benefits. David Giertz, president of sales and distribution at Nationwide Financials told CNBC that pensions are drying up and going out of existence. He says it’s imperative to create a retirement plan for income that includes social security as part of full retirement benefits. He also said that financial advisors should communicate with their clients about social security after a survey revealed consumers’ advisors avoided the topic.



Another misconception Mr.Giertz said retirees and future retirees have about social security is the eligibility age. Although, the age for people to start drawing their social security is 62, the full retirement age is 65 to 67. He said that retirees who wait until full retirement receive higher monthly income, compared to early withdrawal retirees. The retire checks are even higher if they wait beyond full retirement age, he explained. Giertz added that the full retirement annual retirement amount will grow by eight percent if they start social security benefits beyond full retirement age.



David Giertz joined Nationwide Life Insurance Company’s Nationwide Financial Distribution and Sales as Senior Vice President, in April 2013. He became President of Nationwide Financial Distributors Incorporation one month earlier. Mr. Giertz brings over 28 years of experience in the banking, investment, and insurance industries. He’s a financial planning professional with expertise in social security benefits and building retirement investment portfolios. David ended the discussion stating that taxation is another misconception involving social security benefits, as well as, unexpected health problems having an influence.

Devco Deals with Unpaid Loan of $20 million

Last month has seen a failure of he Middlesex County Improvement Authority to pay what it owed to DEVCO. The Improvement Authority is already behind in payments by $7 million. It has been in debt for 5 years. The initial loan was issued in 2005 for the construction of a New Brunswick hotel under the name of The Heldrich. The development of the hotel was carried out by DEVCO. Senate President Stephen Sweeney has touted this corporation as an example of the possibilities that could be carried out with public money that is received from private firms. This is one of the larger scale construction projects that were going to add value to the area.
DEVCO is a private real estate development firm that operates as a nonprofit. The firm has been established with the intention of bringing forth developments that will improve the conditions of the area so that more people will want to visit and even live in the area. DEVCO is also good at creating alliances that are good for the improvement of the property value of the community. Among the type of partnerships that it has formed are powerful partnerships between public and private businesses. They have also managed almost $1.6 billion in investments in the area of New Brunswick.

As of right now, The Improvement Authority is still hard at work in putting together The Heldrich, says Devco’s Chris Paladino. They are still working on the project. If there is one thing that could be admired about the company, it is that they are willing to finish what they started. Once they finish the project, the hotel will be opened up and the revenue that is generated from the hotel will be used to pay off the bonds that they have owed. While things may look a little rough, there is a huge possibility that the developers will be able to push through their challenges.
