The amount of your Social Security Check depends on several factors such as:
• Were you married and are now divorced?
• Are you a widow or a widower?
• Has your spouse begun taking benefits?
• Were you age 62 before January 1, 2016?
• Should you file for a restricted benefit?
• If you’ve already begun benefits, do you have the option to change your decisions for larger benefit?
In addition to all of these questions, the folks at the Social Security office are prohibited from advising you. You would think that your government would help you to make complex decisions based on their arcane rules.
The government doesn’t want the liability of advising you on which decision is best. You would probably need to sit down and study the Social Security rules for a month in order to make the best decision.
