"Learn the secrets to maximizing your Social Security benefits and earn up to thousands of dollars more each year with expert advice that you can't get anywhere else. Want to know how to navigate the forbidding maze of Social Security and emerge with the highest possible benefits? You could try reading all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system (and the thousands of explanations of these rules), but Kotlikoff, Moeller, and Solman explain Social Security benefits in an easy to understand and user-friendly style. What you don't know can seriously hurt you: wrong decisions about which Social Security benefits to apply for cost some individual retirees tens of thousands of dollars in lost income every year. How many retirees or those nearing retirement know about such Social Security options as file and suspend (apply for benefits and then don't take them)? Or start stop start (start benefits, stop them, then re-start them)? Or--just as important--when and how to use these techniques? Get What's Yours covers the most frequent benefit scenarios faced by married retired couples, by divorced retirees, by widows and widowers, among others. It explains what to do if you're a retired parent of dependent children, disabled, or an eligible beneficiary who continues to work, and how to plan wisely before retirement. It addresses the tax consequences of your choices, as well as the financial implications for other investments. Many personal finance books briefly address Social Security, but none offers the thorough, authoritative, yet conversational analysis found here. You've paid all your working life for these benefits. Now, get what's yours"-- Provided by publisher.

A must-read book about the ins and outs of the new Social Security law and how to make sure you are applying for benefits in the most prudent way possible, written in clear and direct language.

Overcome by events. Legislation has changed much of the information in this book. Better to check online for the latest - especially on file and suspend and divorcee bene's after 10 years of marriage.

I waited months for this book and was disappointed to read that to max my Social Security that I need to be max age. Okay read if you are past 67, but otherwise, not much for those who want to retire at 62. A quick reading book.

This book goes into a lot of detail to explain the nuances of social security benefits, and different strategies to make the most of the benefit. You'll get more out of it with each reading. However, in Nov 2015, the budget passed by Congress included social security reform that eliminated two of the most commonly used tools: the "file and suspend" strategy, and the restricted application "claim now, claim more later" strategy for people who have not turned 62 by the end of 2015.
