Detailed Bio

Cindy Lundquist brings more than four decades of knowledge and expertise on Social Security. She began her career with the Social Security Administration in 1972, working her way up to a high-profile position as executive assistant to the regional commissioner of the Social Security Administration in Atlanta, in 1987, where she remained an integral part of the organization until she retired in 1999.

Her duties included acting as a liaison between the commissioner and Congressional offices and committees in Washington, D.C., to provide technical analyses of Social Security specific to regional needs in the South. She wrote briefing documents focused on Atlanta-area Social Security statistics to assist in best serving the diverse array of potential and existing beneficiaries in the region.

In addition, she served as a public speaker and trainer on Social Security retirement, spousal, family, survivor, and disability benefits. Speeches and seminars included overviews on eligibility, types of benefits Social Security offers, benefit payment amounts, and strategies for maximizing Social Security benefits regardless of type. Part of her position entailed interfacing with local and national media to provide answers to technical questions about Social Security.

Subsequent to her departure from the day-to-day operations in the Atlanta arm of the Social Security Administration, she established Lundquist & Associates, a retirement consulting firm specializing in educating employees of corporations and government agencies about how to maximize Social Security benefits earned over a lifetime. The company also provides invaluable insight on federal pensions as well as government entitlement rules and regulations. Cindy is an expert with insider knowledge on the often very complicated spectrum of Social Security, federal pensions, and Medicare.

A trainer and speaker in high demand, Cindy leads or participates in Social Security educational events more than 100 days per year. Her programs cover three distinct sets of demographics—people early in their retirement planning, mid-career individuals, and employees who expect to retire in the next five years. The needs and strategies of each group differ, but the overriding objective is to furnish Americans with the knowledge they need to maximize Social Security and navigate the complicated arena of federal pensions and Medicare.
