Masters Series: Two Simple Strategies for Maximizing Your Social Security Income

Hi All. Please read below for a sickening example of another government program run amok. Both morally and economically. It makes the outrageous statement at the end that "this is YOUR money," forgetting to mention that most baby boomers will do OK with the current system and will end up receiving money that they didn't pay in, but for the younger generation, it will be disastrous.

This author is misinformed. I worked for Social Security between 1967 and 1985. The law requires people who are eligible for spouse benefits and retirement benefits on their own work record to file simultaneously and to have simultaneous dates of entitlement. The government already figured out this potential leak in the system and from the very beginning outlawed it.
