Galloway, N.J. – The Stockton Center on Successful Aging is sponsoring a free workshop, “Social Security: What You Need to Know,” for older adults at the Galloway Senior Center, 621 W. White Horse Pike, Galloway, N.J. on Tuesday,Aug. 9 from 9:30 – 10:30 am. 

Older adults from the community are invited to attend this lecture presented by Charles C. Weeks, Jr., a certified financial planner and president of Barrister Wealth Management LLC, which provides financial planning, investment and risk management, and retirement and insurance planning.  

Social Security can be very confusing. Some typical questions include:

  • At what age should I collect?
  • Are my benefits taxed?
  • What happens if I work and collect my benefits?

This presentation will discuss the ins and outs of Social Security including the various benefits that are available, reductions in benefits due to working and how benefits may be taxable. Weeks will also discuss various strategies for optimizing one’s benefits.

Weeks received his Bachelor of Science degree from LaSalle University in Finance with a minor in Accounting in 2001, and his Juris Doctorate from Villanova University School of Law in 2006.

Weeks spearheaded the effort to create the undergraduate Financial Planning Concentration and the Continuing Studies Certificate in Financial Planning at Stockton, where he also serves as an assistant professor of Finance and an instructor for the Certificate Program.
