Social Security is a critical component when planning for retirement. It is an extremely valuable pension program that provides guaranteed lifetime income with cost-of-living increases. However, to ensure that you do not leave any eligible benefits on the table, learn the considerations and claiming strategies which may be available to you to maximize your benefits. Such potential benefits include spousal, ex-spousal, child, child-in-care and survivor benefits—the more you know the more you can feel empowered by making the optimal Social Security filing decision in order to maximize benefits for you and your family.
