Publisher's Summary

Let's be honest, Social Security can be complicated.

Social Security is vital to many people's retirement plans. Yet is so shrouded in uncertainty.

There are so many different rules, income limitations, age requirements, cut-offs, and so on that it can drive a person mad.

Your choices influence the size of your Social Security checks and making mistakes could accidentally shrink them. 

Understanding how your decisions affect your Social Security benefits can help you avoid devastating mistakes that could cost you tens of thousands of dollars over your retirement. Or cost you and your family important benefits.

Find out what's important to you and get the information you need...Listen on to learn all you need to know about Social Security.

Here is just a tiny amount of what you will discover in this audiobook:

  • The best age to file for Social Security
  • Avoid depending on your children, family, relatives, or the community
  • How to calculate your Social Security Benefits (3 easy steps)
  • Social Security mistakes that have big consequences
  • Why early retirement could be an expensive mistake and the secret to maximum benefits (patience pays off) 
  • How to easily apply for Social Security within 20 minutes
  • The main reason why people stop receiving disability benefits and how to avoid it
  • The four parts of Medicare and what they mean for you
  • Are Social Security benefits taxed?
  • The best ways to make your claim decisions much easier and quicker
  • What to do when your claim is denied 
  • And much, much more...

Social Security encompasses more than just retirement benefits, and the more you know, the more money you might collect from it.

It can seem confusing and this audiobook will help you in making the best decision for you instead of relying on some generic advice you find online or hear on the TV.

Find it all in one place, This audiobook.

not totally accurate

the information this guy gives you is ok . But if a plain old person like me was able to figure out that filling for SS when your 63 instead of 65 or 70. would give you more money in the long over a time frame. What you would pocketed the 2 years before you turn 65. It would take u about 12 years to make up in that in what difference they say that you would make more by waiting 2 years!

Very Informative

This book helped me understand Social Security a little better. Blake Williams did a very good job with the narration. I received this free copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Nice and Easy

This book was written in a way that makes it easy to understand. Sure it doesn't cover every circumstance but it does contain what the majority of the population needs to know about filing for benefits.

Well written

I truly enjoy the book. Even the elderly will find it simple and easy to grasp. Gives you an overall view of SS, what to anticipate, and when to act. Has links to websites where you may learn more. Very well written.
