THINK RETIREMENT – ANDY LANDIS– Hi there, I’m Andy Landis. For my first blog—ever—let me introduce myself and let you know what you’ll find here in coming weeks.
I’ve been working with pre-retirees and retirees throughout my career. It wasn’t planned that way, but that’s where the road led. I was hired by the Social Security Administration in 1977 and worked in a variety of Social Security offices until 1990. Along the way I gained a lot of technical expertise in Social Security, SSI, and Medicare—and a deep appreciation for the programs—and acquired a love of educating people on Social Security and successful retirement.
That’s what I’ve been doing for the last 22 years, in a variety of roles, and that’s what you’ll see here in my blog. Some upcoming topics (in no particular order):
