Social Security Maximization
How and when you should begin taking Social Security is one of the many important decisions you make concerning retirement. Based on your contribution record, your marital status, dependent status, and age – there are over 500 different ways you can take it. Do the Windfall Elimination Provision or Government Pension Offset rules apply to you? Once you start, you only have a short window to make a change before it is set in stone for as long as you live. The Social Security Administration will answer questions, and implement decisions, but not give advice. Wise counsel on how to maximize your lifetime benefits is paramount. It can make a difference of tens of thousands of dollars.
