"We want to show our appreciation for servicemembers and veterans by helping them use the complicated Social Security rules to their advantage, so they can get the most benefits available to them," said William Meyer, Founder and CEO of Social Security Solutions, Inc. "Deciding when and how to take Social Security benefits is the most important financial decision a person will make as they enter retirement." The average American couple can receive $1 million in lifetime benefits with a smart Social Security claiming strategy. The choice of when to start benefits and how to apply specific rules has a profound impact on monthly benefits. Someone with a monthly benefit of $1,500 at full retirement age would receive just $1,125 a month if benefits begin at age 62 but $1,980 a month if that person delays to age 70. Social Security rules and timing are especially complicated for married couples. The right mix of how and when to claim based on the couple's individual situation can offer opportunities to significantly increase lifetime benefits. "Social Security is very complicated. The confusion on how and when to claim leads Americans to leave billions of dollars on the table," Meyer said. "Our tool develops highly individualized strategies that consider all the aspects and scenarios, so that you can get the benefits you have worked for and deserve."
