Overview

MORE AMERICANS ARE AT OR NEAR RETIREMENT AGE THAN EVER BEFORE--and for many, Social Security benefits may serve as the only source of guaranteed life-time income. So why does it have to be so complex and confusing?

Social Security Essentials explains the "why", not just the "what" of claiming Social Security retirement benefits. Why should you care about when you claim? Why should you care about the earnings test, spousal benefits, the family maximum or other provisions of the Social Security rules? What is the impact of your Social Security decision on other decisions, like how do you invest for retirement income or what insurance coverages do you purchase?

"Social Security Essentials" brings your Social Security decisions into the real world and explores the interaction of the various claiming options with the rest of your retirement financial life.
