Valuable Tips For Maximizing Your Social Security Retirement Benefits

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Feb 26, 2021 | 0 Comments

The folks at the Motley Fool have published an article that touches on the important topic of how to get the most retirement benefits you can from Social Security. For too many Americans, their monthly Social Security benefits constitute the largest portion of their retirement income. The range is from one-third of their

monthly income all the way to 90%. 

Given how critical Social Security benefits are, it is vital to get the top dollar amount you are eligible for. To that end, the Motley Fool has set forth five great ideas. They are:

1.    Work as long as you can to ensure that Social Security takes into account your thirty-five highest-paying years of employment

2.    Don't claim your Social Security retirement benefits until full retirement age. Ideally, wait until age 70

3.    If you claimed Social Security retirement benefits before full retirement age, think about going off benefits until you do reach 70

4.    Do the math to figure out the best way to claim benefits if you and your spouse both qualify

5     Pay as little as possible in income taxes on your Social Security retirement benefit.

Needless to say, I am not a financial expert. Do not make any decisions based on what I write. Instead, use this information to talk to your accountant and your financial planner. Listen to them and act accordingly.  When you drive your Bentley to the country club for brunch one fine day, you'll be glad you did.

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.
