Today’s baby boomers can expect to spend more time in retirement given increased life expectancies. As a result, claiming one’s Social Security benefits is no longer a simple decision.

For several retirees and their spouses, taking the time to properly evaluate this important financial decision can be a major step toward a more comfortable retirement.

Topics covered include:

  • When is the best time to claim benefits?
  • How much money can one earn before getting penalized?
  • Survivor benefits
  • Recent changes in legislation and how they will impact benefits
  • Avoiding frequent claiming mistakes
  • Why Social Security is crucial to women
