Most retirees get little adviser help on Social Security: Study A study by the Nationwide Retirement Institute has found that less than one-third of pre-retirees and retirees have hired a financial adviser. Moreover, 59% of those with an adviser say they received no guidance on Social Security benefits. Those findings are consistent with the past two years' study results, according to an article in CNBC. "A lot of this is due to the fact that [most] advisers wish they had more information about Social Security rules and regulations," says an expert with the institute. "Most advisers don't have [extensive] knowledge about it, so they don't it bring up to their clients." — CNBC
