A person’s “Golden Years” are supposed to be full of fun and enjoyment where seniors can spend time traveling, sightseeing, spending time with loved ones, and doing all the things they couldn’t do when they were bound by the 9-5 routine of their working years. Although this time is coined as the “Golden Years,” it can also be some of the most stressful financial times a single person or married couple can endure –being on a fixed income. That is why it is so important to ensure you maximize your lifetime Social Security Retirement Benefits by taking advantage of various strategies available. Using these strategies, it is not uncommon for a married couple to increase their received lifetime benefits by over $100,000.00!
