    “Martha was referred to my spouse & I in anticipation of applying for SS benefits. She was oh so right on (!) with her advice. The SSA website had similar information, we learned after Martha helped us with options and strategies, but Martha presented the information in ways that were CLEAR and obvious so we could make choices for our future together. Thank you so much, Martha! We are in the flow of the best option for us at this time.”

    “Martha Shedden applied her wide knowledge base of Social Security benefits in guiding us through the application process with our unique set of circumstances. I knew there would be glitches if my husband and I tried to apply without guidance. Martha talked us through the online application and we sorted the rough spots together. It was a great relief to have her calming presence and expertise in our corner wending our way through this process. She is incredibly smart and truly passionate about helping people through the Social Security process.”
