GETTING THE MOST OUT OF SOCIAL SECURITY! MARY BETH FRANKLIN ON MAXIMIZING YOUR RETIREMENT BENEFITS

September 18, 2020

COVID-19 has thrown a monkey wrench into many retirement plans as millions of Americans were thrown out of work and many were forced to tap into retirement accounts to pay the bills.

The experience has made Social Security benefits even more valuable to potential and current retirees. According to Social Security expert Mary Beth Franklin, they account for half or more of total income for 50% of married couples and 70% of unmarried individuals.
They are the only source of guaranteed income for life for most Americans, and they have the added bonus of adjusting for inflation, thus protecting purchasing power.

Mary Beth Franklin joins us to discuss how to make the most of Social Security benefits. Franklin is an acknowledged expert on this topic.

She has written that deciding when and how to claim Social Security benefits is one of the most important decisions that retirees will ever make. In this week’s show, I asked her how the pandemic is affecting those decisions.
