Retirees: Don't Miss 2018's $16,122 Social Security Bonus

By: Robert Brokamp, CFP

A man cheers on a rock.

Dear future retiree,

Millions of hard working Americans count on Social Security for their retirement every month. It is a vital program that helps lift and estimated 22 million citizens out of poverty every year - including 1.1 million children.

Yet filing correctly to receive the maximum possible benefits can be overwhelming, confusing, and complicated.

It can also extremely lucrative -- if you play it correctly.

  • While one small filing mistake could mean a 30% permanent cut to your benefits, another savvy move could line your pockets with an extra $16,122 every year.
  • There’s a weird little loophole that lets you get a one-year, interest-free loan. That’s not just easy money - It’s free money!
  • Married couples could be eligible for free extra Social Security payments too - if they file correctly.

And while it’s all 100% legal, I bet the majority of Americans aren’t aware of even half of the ways they can maximize their Social Security benefits.

Who knows how many millions of dollars retirees leave on the table each and every year!?

And good luck getting help from the Social Security Administration itself. I bet they’d be furious if every hardworking retiree suddenly started claiming all of the extra benefits they’re entitled to.

But the fact remains: This is your money. They owe it to you.

Americans need better answers about how to collect their maximum benefit. With the right guidance there are a handful of devastating Social Security mistakes that can be easily avoided and make you thousands of dollars.

I’ve spent 20 years as a retirement specialist, guiding tens of thousands of individuals to financial independence and answered hundreds of filing nuances about Social Security.

And while there are enough pitfalls, loopholes, and opportunities to make your head spin - I’ve written a straight-forward guide that demystifies the entire process.

It’s a comprehensive Social Security blueprint that reveals how:

  • Divorcees could collect extra benefits - if they know about 1 simple rule.
  • Public sector workers may see their benefits reduced by one sneaky provision.
  • You'll pay extra taxes on your Social Security benefits - if you aren’t careful with other retirement income.
  • To collect that $16,122 bonus every year.

And lots more!

It’s a lot to take in. But after years of paying into the system you deserve clear answers about how much you’ll receive -- and how to maximize those benefits.
