  • When Should you Claim Social Security?

    This is not as easy to answer as you might think.

    Many do not know that there are significant details within the Social Security Administration’s calculations when determining how to claim your Social Security (SS) check.

    “Think you know enough about Social Security to make the best decision about when to claim your benefits? Join the crowd. In a just released survey of 55 and older workers, 24% say they are “very  confident” and another 53% described themselves as “somewhat confident” that they know enough to make that big decision.”

    “The catch is, when the same folks took an eight question quiz about crucial Social Security rules, just 5% got all the answers right. Another 22% got 7 correct, while 45% got 3 or more wrong.”
