Our Story

Infinite Educational Strategies (IES) was founded in 2013 to provide financial education, initially in the areas of Social Security and Medicare. We knew that these two topics can often be the most confusing areas in our financial lives.

Our goal to provide the financial education for individuals and families utilizing our background in the education field allows us to provide a stress free and educational environment without offering or selling any products.

The final step to realize our vision was to create IES as a 501c3 non-profit organization. This reinforces the fact that we operate from an educational standpoint without a sales agenda.

Originally, we started by offering group events, then attendees started wanting more information on their own Financial Picture. It only made sense for us to be able to accommodate meetings 1 on1. Now, we are doing 100’s of individual meetings each year and doing several events each month.  

Our Mission

The Infinite Educational Strategies (IES) was created to offer pertinent, practical information to individuals and groups in various areas including Medicare and Social Security.  This accurate and unbiased information allows individuals to make an informed decision for their own financial situation.

Resources

For us to learn and navigate the topics we educate on; we created an Integrated Financial Network (IFN). Our IFN is made up financial industry veterans that are experts in their respective fields.

We collaborate with our IFN on a regular basis which allows us to stay up to date with changes in each industry. When we educate ourselves about each industry, then we are able to provide clear and understandable financial education to the masses.

Social Security Q & A with Rich Grawer

Infinite Educational Strategies (IES)

The Social Security Administration CANNOT provide financial advice but has calculated your benefit for you. The Social Security Administration has stopped mailing your statements annually. In 2017 they began mailing statements every five years until age 60.
You can create an online account which will give you up-to-date data about your own benefit. You can create such an account at: ssa.gov/myaccount
