For more than half of Americans, Social Security will be providing more than half of their retirement income.
Since Social Security is a government program available to virtually all Americans, you'd think there would be no secrets to "game" the system: no tips or tricks that could result in bigger monthly checks.
But there are things you can do to squeeze more out of the Social Security program, especially if you have a spouse who's also eligible. Claiming at the right time, for example, can lead to thousands more in monthly payments over your lifetime.
In this week's "Money" podcast, we're going to explore techniques to maximize your Social Security. We're also going to talk about whether our younger listeners should expect to receive the benefits when their time arrives.
As usual, I share the broadcast booth with longtime financial journalist and fellow podcaster Miranda Marquit. Joining us this week is Jeff Miller, a former professor of economics at Gallaudet University, and founder of Social Security Choices, a company providing personalized reports to help consumers decide when to claim Social Security in order to maximize lifetime income.
