Make Money, Not Excuses:
A Social Security Owner’s Manual

By Jim Blankenship, CFP®, EA

The majority of Americans start their benefits at the earliest age possible (62) locking in low benefits for life for themselves and their spouses. Blankenship emphasizes that Social Security provides longevity insurance. Too many retirees are selling themselves short through their ignorance and due to their willingness to buy into the political rhetoric that Social Security won’t be around for long so they want to get theirs right NOW!

The book is a great resource about how Social Security works and the range of options for claiming retirement benefits. It’s invaluable to the person who wants to explore their options before deciding when to claim retirement benefits.

Copies of the book can be found at local and online book retailers.
