Social Security Maximization
Social Security is the key source of income for most retirees, and that will continue to be the
case for a long time.
But surveys of retirees show that the program’s benefits are an important part of retirement income
for most of them, and the importance grows through retirement.
That’s why it’s important to maximize Social Security benefits. You can take actions that will
affect the amount of your monthly benefits. Unfortunately, many people inadvertently take actions
that reduce their benefits. Remember Social Security retirement benefits are guaranteed for life
and increase with inflation. Over the course of retirement, many people lose tens of thousands of
dollars or more in lifetime benefits by overlooking some key actions.
