Learn How To Maximize Your Lifetime Benefits
By Understanding Your Claiming Options.
From Jim Blair
Former Social Security Administrator
Dear Future Retiree,
How much do you know about the different claim options available with Social Security?
If you’re like most Americans you haven’t spent much time thinking about it. I don’t blame you since comparing all of the benefit and medicare choices can be overwhelming.
The problem is…Americans leave behind $25 Billion in unclaimed benefits every year.
This is bad news when you think about the importance of financial security during retirement. It’s a shame so many people lose out on some of the benefits they paid towards during their working years.
These days it is up to YOU to make benefit decisions online, without any help from SSA staff.
Why? The recent boom of retirees has depleted the support resources at the SSA. Branch offices receive more requests than they can handle, and yet our government continues to make cuts to the program. They have laid off hundreds of experienced workers and closed over 500 offices for good.
This is bad news if you have questions about the application. Worse yet, there aren’t many options to “change your mind” after you apply. You either get it right the first time or suffer through endless appeals and waiting games.
The online application is simple enough to complete and submit. The key is understanding how your application choices affect the value of your lifetime benefits.
The ideal claiming strategy is different for every household.
You must look beyond the basic benefit schedules to avoid leaving money on the table. It is important to consider your retirement income, health status, and your partner’s work record. Considering all of these factors, and comparing them to your benefit options, is an important step toward making an intelligent decision.
Would another $150 per month help you during retirement? How about $800 or more EACH MONTH for you and your spouse?
It’s hard to believe, but people leave this kind of money behind all the time. Most folks know the earlier they enroll the less they receive on a monthly basis, but WHEN you claim is only part of the equation.
There are over 2,700 rules in the Social Security operations manual, and the average married couple has hundreds of different claiming options. It’s an unbelievable amount of information to sort through, but even if you had all the time in the world, knowing all the RULES would only get you so far.
This is why I created the complete guide to maximizing your retirement benefits…
