The Ten Social Security Myths That Persist

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Feb 05, 2021 | 0 Comments

AARP published an article outlining ten things about Social Security that people consistently believe, even though they are not true. Despite the fact that I have worked for almost three decades helping people get Social Security disability benefits, I still thought some of these myths were true. I suspect that almost

About As True As Some Of These Myths

everyone is convinced of some fact about Social Security that is simply not the case.

Some of these include:

*    The Federal government takes money from the Social Security trust fund to pay ongoing obligations

*    The retirement age is 65

*     Social Security holds your contributions for you in a retirement account

The More You Know . . .

I encourage you to read the article and educate yourself further. As the cliche has it, knowledge is power. The more you know about Social Security, the better decisions you can make.  Virtually everyone will get a Social Security benefit of some kind in his or her lifetime. The fewer myths you believe, the wiser you can be when it is your turn.

Wasn't It Satchel Paige?

Remember the wise words of Mark Twain (or somebody), who said "It ain't what you don't know, it's what you know for sure that just ain't so."

About the Author

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
