Want 24% More in Social Security Benefits? Here’s How to Get It
Social Security is an important source of retirement income, and an ideal one since your benefits won’t end as long as you live, and you get periodic raises to help protect against the impact of inflation.
Most experts recommend maximizing these benefits, and there’s a simple way to do that. In fact, almost anyone can raise their Social Security retirement benefits by 24%, giving them more money to live on for life.
This option is available to you if you’re claiming your own benefits — it won’t work for those who are claiming either survivor or spousal benefits. But if you can exercise it, it’s definitely worth considering.
