Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security online free download ᦅ Author Laurence J Kotlikoff ᦤ Get Whats Yours 1 WHY WE BOTHERED The first version of this book began with a catchy true story of a simple Social Security strategy how, during a break in the exercise coauthors Larry and Paul refer to as tennis, Larry made a completely legitimate 48,000 for Paul in less than two minutes by instructing him on how to get his The rest of the book guided readers through the various steps and strategies necessary to get theirs as well, using other real life stories, plausible hypotheticals, and humor, to the limited extent we could make Social Security amusing The books deep purposes were broad to make our fellow Americans aware of how little they knew about the countrys most important retirement program to make them aware of how critical it was to their own financial future to understand the systems basic contours, as well as its nooks and crannies and finally, to demystify Social Securitys paralyzing complexity so that literally anyone could navigate it But when it comes to getting whats yours, our main objective was to conveyno, to beat you over the head withone strategy above all others patience, and the huge potential dollar return from waiting to collect massively larger benefits starting at older ages, regardless of your age, marital status, or earnings history A VIVID EXAMPLE OF THE PATIENCE PAYOFF Consider a 62 year old couple who both stop working at that age, each having earned above Social Security taxable FICA limitthe maximum taxable amountfrom age 22 on They would jointly receive about 50,000 a year if they both began taking benefits at 62 the earliest age at which you can collect To generate the same amount of annual income from investments, assuming a return of 2 percent a year above inflation, they would need a nest egg of over 1.3 million than many upper middle income retirees have saved by retirement age The net worth of a typical household headed by someone aged 65 to 69 is only a fifth of this amount and much of it is in the value of their home 1 Of course, 1.3 million is a lot of money Butand heres the key takeawayits much smaller than what the couple can get by maximizing their Social Security benefits Because, if they make the right decisions, they can increase the value of their lifetime Social Security asset to than 1.7 million All the couple must do is wait until age 70 to start collecting their retirement benefits If they do, Social Security will pay them benefits that are a whopping 76 percent higher than their age 62 benefits And yet, according to the latest data, less than 2 percent of Americans wait until 70 to collect In Chapter 2, we will note some important exceptions to our Patience Rule But we will also demolish the arguments of those who think they know better than to wait AN UNFORTUNATE EVENT Less than nine months after the first edition of Get Whats Yours was published, the government decided to rewrite Social Security rules On November 2, President Obama signed into law the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015 Under the arguably disingenuous heading Protecting Social Security Benefits, the new law modifies several former provisions, most prominent among them the simple file and suspend strategy Larry had shared with Paul across the net After six months from the signing of the bill, the file and suspend strategy would be severely restricted This book will tell you all about the new provisions and help you understand the extent to which they will or wont affect you Thanks to the new law, the 62 year old couple we mentioned can no longer collect one full spousal benefit between full retirement age and age 70 while waiting until 70, as Larry had advised Paul over tennis Still, many married couples and divorcees remain eligible over the next 4 years to follow Pauls strategy But heres the good news, and a key reason we felt compelled to rewrite and present this revised edition of Get Whats Yours the strategy that earned Paul and his wife 48,000 may still work for many couples and divorced individuals both of whom were 62 or older by January 1, 2016, but not yet 70, and who are not the same age There are, by our rough reckoning, millions of you out there, millions of Americans who will be grandparented in and therefore still able to employ the strategy Larry advised Paul to adopt And while our 62 year old couple, who turned 62 too late, will lose roughly 60,000 because of the new law, they will still gain about 400,000 from maximizing strategies still in effect Moreover, the rest of the books suggestions and strategies remain true and invaluable be patient become aware of and then learn how to take all the benefits to which youre entitled and may never have heard of time your various benefits to make the most of them and overall, understand Social Securitys rules well enough to make the best decisions for you and your family, since you really cant rely on Social Security to do it for you Social Securitys unreliability was something we knew about when writing Get Whats Yours, but we have had it impressed upon us time and time again since publication as plaintive readers write to us to complain of having been given bum advice One reader even gave us a single star on for having given her wrong advice, because her local Social Security office assured her we were wrong We werent, and Larry got the review removed and, we hope, straightened out the readers benefits In defense of reviewers, however, another one said he had learned a great deal from our bookand identified himself as a Social Security representative But since the strategy Larry shared with Pauland that coauthor Phil Moeller and his wife, Cheryl, are usingstill applies to millions of Americans for the next four years, what exactly is it Heres the original story BAD TENNIS, GOOD STRATEGY Back in 2010, as Larry and Paul had taken a break from what they optimistically call tennis, Larry launched into a harangue, as he often does this one was about Social Securitys maddening complexity Paul listened with his skeptical journalists ear Or, maybe, since it was a Larry harangue, just half listened Then Larry popped the question how old were Paul and his wife and when did they plan to take their Social Security benefits Proudly, Paul told Larry not to worry he and his wife had it all figured out They would both wait until 70, when Paul would get something like 40,000 a year instead of the 30,000 or so if he took his benefits earlier at 66, his fullbut not maximumretirement age, which was in fact just around the corner Paul had for years been reading and filing away those annual greenish statements from the Social Security Administration with their Estimated Benefits Hed been reading his wifes, too How old are you and Jan Larry asked Pauls wife would soon turn 67 he, 66 Heres what you do, said Larry, never at a loss when it comes to speaking in the imperative Jan should apply for her Social Security retirement benefit now, since she is already 66, but then suspend it That is, she makes herself eligible for the benefit by officially registering with Social Security, on the phone or in person at her local office But Jan then tells Social Security she is not taking her benefit right away but suspending it until some time in the future In other words, she files and suspends Then, said Larry, when you Paul turn 66, you also call or visit Social Security and register with the system But you apply not for your own benefit, but for a spousal benefit A spousal benefit is fully 50 percent of what Jan is entitled to at her full retirement age66, in Jans case Paul was confused but intrigued Spousal benefits Paul had vaguely heard of them He had, however, never imagined he or his wife was eligible for any, though had you asked him why not, he couldnt have told you Was he entitled to them Yes, said Larry, so long as youre not yet taking your own benefit Then, Larry continued, when Jan hits 70, she does as originally plannedshe calls or visits Social Security again and says she now wants to take her retirement benefit, at which point it will start at its highest possible value And what do I do at 70 Paul asked Just what you planned to do originally, said Larry You contact Social Security and tell them youre switching from the spousal benefit to your own benefit And wheres the extra money Paul asked Well, said Larry, during the four years you wait, you would earn about 12,000 a yearhalf of Jans full retirement benefit Meanwhile, your own benefit would have grown by 8 percent a year, for a total of 32 percent reaching the amount Pauls greenish statements had estimated if he waited until 70 Spousal benefits for four years That should indeed be almost 50,000, just as Larry had quickly estimated And importantly, it would give Paul and Jan a cushion as they waited until 70 Suppose they faced sudden, unforeseen expenses An aside is in order here Larry is a world famous scold, or, he will tell you, a dead on Cassandra, with respect to Social Securitys insolvency Advising people like Paul to take extra benefits from the system while himself decrying the systems funding shortfall was not what Paul expected to hear on that in Chapter 17 But Larry believed it wasnt fair that some beneficiaries got than others simply because they knew the systems rules while so many others didnt And Paul and Phil agreed with him Which is why we wrote Get Whats Yours Fast forward Jan filed and suspendedby phone The person she talked to couldnt have been nicer Paul turned 66 He filed for a spousal benefit The Social Security representative on the phone had never heard of file and suspend, checked with her supervisor, and came back on the line to thank him for enlightening her about a strategy she could now share with everyone who called thereafter We are dedicated to getting you every dollar to which youre entitled, she said, or words to that effect When they hit 70, both Paul and his wife called again, were again reprocessedgraciously, competently, and within minutes, though his wife was nonplussed when asked if shed ever been a nun ANOTHER COAUTHOR AND SPOUSE WILL STILL GET WHATS THEIRS The tennis court strategy is what Congress is doing away with But fortunately our third coauthor, financial journalist Phil Moeller, was born in 1946, and his wife, Cheryl Magazine, is four years his junior Lucky for them both because, by a stroke of pure chronological circumstance, Cheryl was born before the clock ran out on 1950, meaning she was safely beyond 62 before the ball dropped in Times Square and rang in the year 2016 Beating the ball meant Cheryl was grandparented in To her, the old rules still apply And what about Phil Happily for him, he had gone a courtin as roughly a third of American men appear to have done, looking at data from the Census Bureau, and married a woman at least four years younger than himself The median difference in the United States is a man two years older than his wife Phil, of course, was dutifully waiting until 70 to collect his own maximum Social Security benefit, 32 percent higher than had he begun taking his benefit at age 66 As coauthor of a book whose main advice is to wait as long as possible before taking Social Security, he would have run the risk of public censureand coauthor abusehad he done otherwise So just as Phil turns 70 and begins collecting his maximum benefit, Cheryl turns 66, files a restricted application, and begins collecting just her spousal benefit half of Phils full retirement benefit, the amount he was eligible to collect when he turned 66, and just what Paul had done when he began collecting on Jans record Phil and Cheryl are the perfect coupleat the very least for spousal benefit eligibility under the new rules The four year spread in age means that Cheryl can begin taking spousal benefits just as cradle robbing Phil turns 70, and she can receive them for the full four years until she herself reaches that lofty level Crucially, for readers of Get Whats Yours, the same holds true for any spouse four or years younger than the person to whom theyre marriedthink college senior marrying high school seniorbut remember the younger spouse has to have been at least 62 before January 2, 2016, to be eligible under the old rules Phil and Cheryl are also the perfect couple because, were she only three years youngera freshwoman when he was a senior, for exampleshe would already be 67 when Phil turned 70 and thus get only three years worth of spousal benefits if a sopho to his senior, two years just a junior, well, you do the math The reason they are allowed to do this is that Cheryl made the age 62 cutoff Under the new law, older spouses who file and suspend cant provide their spouse or any other dependents with benefits while their retirement benefit is in suspension Admittedly, the estimate youre about to read is a rough one, but of the nearly 30 million or so Americans born between 1946 and 1953, there figure to be millions of couples in a situation analogous to Phils and Cheryls and others grandfathered differently under the new law Someone you know is surely among them SOCIAL SECURITY VERBATIM YOURE RIGHT THERE AND WERE RIGHT HERE The regulations that require a notice for an initial determination contemplate sending a correct notice We consider that an initial determination is correct even if we send an incorrect notice ALL QUOTES FROM OFFICIAL SOCIAL SECURITY RULES A PERVERSE TWIST THAT THE NEW LAW ENCOURAGES The new law encourages divorce, as well explain in Chapter 11 Its true that Paul and Jan would have benefited had they gotten divorced, because each could have taken spousal benefits on the others record But the way the law reads now, the only way for same aged couples who were 62 by January 1, 2016, to do what Paul did collect a full spousal benefit while waiting till 70 to take his retirement benefit is to get divorced two years before they reach full retirement agean amicable divorce amicable to the point of intimate, even Then, after six years of equally amicable cohabitation, they can reunite, maybe even throw a new wedding to celebrate Want to guess how much they could afford to spend on the event just from having collected spousal benefits on each other for the four years between full retirement age 66 and age 70 If both were top earners, 128,000 in 2016 dollars If they were not top earners, but getting only the average benefit these days 15,000 a yearthey would still have collected 60,000 over the four years WHY WE SO DISLIKE THE NEW RULES Even though were coauthors and friends, we disagree about many things We even disagree about many things with respect to Social Security, as Chapter 17 makes vividly clear And we disagree about the new rules, as Chapter 4 will make apparent But we do not disagree about the process that led to them we think it was too fast, too opaque, and, therefore, unsurprisingly, ill considered, at least with respect to the details And whether its God or the devil in the details lexicographers differ , its clear that in Social Security, the details can make all the difference When Social Security was last revised by Congress back in 1983, the retirement age was extended by two yearsfrom 65 to 67 But the full extension was phased in over 44 years By contrast, the ability to provide benefits to relatives or to receive benefits from relatives based on a suspended retirement benefit filing was phased out for most people over a period of less than six months, and the ability to take spousal benefits at age 66 while letting your own benefit grow until 70 has a four year phase out Some such plan was mentioned in the presidents budget as submitted in March 2014 The exact language the Budget proposes to eliminate aggressive Social Security claiming strategies, which allow upper income beneficiaries to manipulate the timing of collection of Social Security benefits in order to maximize delayed retirement credits But there was no mention of eliminating Social Security provisions in the budget issued this year, no public hearings or debate Just rumors, mere days before the budget bill passed, that certain claiming strategies were on the chopping block Indeed, we know the final language was seat of the pants because, after Larry pointed out in his PBS NewsHour weekly online Social Security column, Ask Larry2 that the original language would eliminate some benefits that people were already collecting, the bill was amendedamended, Larry was told by a high ranking Social Security official, because the implication of the language hadnt been realized until he pointed it out But better late than never, and current file and suspenders can thank goodness, or the deity of their choice, for the eleventh hour amendment An estimate we used in the first edition of Get Whats Yours was that if all spouses and divorced spouses were to take advantage of the strategy, it would cost the system 9.5 billion per year A key argument against file and suspend is that high earners were likely to be the primary beneficiaries of this strategy But there is recent evidence from Stanford economist John Shoven and coauthors that shows the rich arent much likely to delay their claiming than the poor Let us tell you about someone who doesnt fit the stereotype, a Boston University employee Larry knows well whom well call Alice Alice was born in 1951 and works two jobs for a total of 80 hours a week Shes been doing so for the last 15 years Her husband cant work because he needs to stay home with their severely disabled child Alice makes a modest combined income in the two jobs, but spread over three people, she and her family are hardly even middle income Alice had planned on filing and suspending her retirement benefit at 66 so her husband could collect a spousal benefit and her son could collect a disabled child benefit while she waited till 70 to collect her retirement benefit She had planned to quit her second job thanks to these extra benefits But because she did not turn 66 in time, she no longer can If she cant keep working at her current pace, however, shell have to take her retirement benefit early This will activate the benefits for her husband and child, but will also mean a permanently lower retirement benefit for her How many Alices are there out there For some other features of the law that seem unfair and or arbitrary, if not downright perverse, please read Chapter 4 WHAT IS STILL TRUE ABOUT GET WHATS YOURS The premise of this revised and updated edition of Get Whats Yours is the same as that of the first to guide you through Social Security to get the benefits you paid for all your working life and to which you are entitled Remember, before we published the book, the world had been divided into two random camps those few people who happened to know Larry or had learned the strategy independently, through other Social Security mavens , and the vast majority of Americans, whom one might call the strategically uninformed It was for them that we wrote, hoping especially that we would reach readers least in the know and most dependent on Social Security for their livelihood in old age That is still the case We had written a book to help people understand how to maximize the Social Security benefits they had earned and therefore, we believed, deserved to get And we figured that since the three of usthe economist and the two journalistshad spent years studying Social Security and making economic complexity in general intelligible to the public, we were the right folks for the job WHY ELSE WE BOTHERED TO WRITE THE BOOK, AND NOW A NEW EDITION WHICH WE DIDNT EXPECT WOULD BE NEEDED QUITE SO SOON Social Security is, far and away, Americans most important retirement asset And thats true not only for people of modest means Middle income and upper income households actually have the most to gain, in total amounts, from getting Social Security right Toting up lifetime benefits, even low earning couples may be Social Security millionaires And except for the Bill Gateses and Warren Buffetts of the worldwhose percentage of the population was exceedingly modest last we checkedSocial Security is a very meaningful income source So this book is for nearly every one of you whos ever earned a paycheck and wants every Social Security benefit dollar to which you are entitledentitled because you paid for it You earned it Its yours It can be yours even if you never contributed a penny to the system but have or had a spouse, living or dead, who did It may be yours even if you spent some or all of your career working for employers who did not have to participate in Social Security Perhaps you wondered, when you got your first paycheck, what the huge deduction for that four letter word FICA referenced If you learned that it stood for the Federal Insurance Contributions Act, you might have been none too pleased at first, but then assuaged by hearing that these contributionsweek after week, month after month, year after year, out of every paycheck up to a limited amount of income would lead to higher retirement benefits Even those of us who arent superrich, but have earned and saved a lot, view Social Security as a critical lifeline We realize, after the crash of 2008, that no assetsnot our homes, not our bonds, and certainly not our stocksare safe from life altering declines We realize that even our private pensions, if we have them, may hinge on our former employer staying in business and inflation not eroding the pensions purchasing power Its the rare private sector pension that boosts payments to protect against inflation We also know that we could, with plausible medical breakthroughs, live to 100 or longer But isnt Social Security a bigger deal for the poor Not necessarily To be sure, Social Security benefits are a crucial lifeline for lower income beneficiaries And, yes, Social Security benefits rise less for higher earners than do their FICA tax contributions, for reasons well explain later But benefits do rise with both time and earnings, and they involve very big sums THE BEST SEX IN THE BOOK One story, to illustrate why Social Security is so damnably complexand can be to the point of absurdity This morbidly humorous tale comes from our Technical Expert, Jerry Lutz, who spent his entire career with Social Security and reviewed this book for accuracy One day, while Jerry still worked for Social Security, a claims representative approached him with a question A new claimants husband had died of a heart attack on their honeymoon while having sex They clearly were married for less than 9 months, the threshold for receiving survivors benefits But one of the exceptions to the 9 month duration of marriage rule involves accidental death Up until then, Jerry had considered accidental to mean something like a car wreck But his job was to research tough cases like this one So he searched the vast Social Security rule book and found POMS GN 00305.105, which describes an accidental death in part as follows A bodily injury occurs whenever the outside force or cause affects the body sufficiently to interfere with its normal function The cause of the bodily injury is External if it originated outside the body An external force can include an injury suffered due to weather conditions or exertion NOTE By exertion we mean an activity that involves at least moderate effort for the average person Routine activities, e.g., standing, do not constitute exertion for purposes of finding accidental death Circumstances which readily lend themselves to a favorable finding of accidental death include an unexpected heart attack occurs during moderate exertion an unforeseen event negates the voluntary nature of an activity, e.g., an exercise machine breaks down while exercising some unintended, unexpected, and unforeseen result occurs during exertion, e.g., a fall or slip while running or a crisis or sudden peril requires strenuous exertion Moderate exertion Arguably Unintended and unexpected Indubitably And so, based on the claimants testimony and her husbands death certificate, widows benefits were eventually conferred, but the determination was anything but simple 10,000 OF YOU TURN 66 EVERY SINGLE DAY INCLUDING SUNDAY Thats right 10,000 baby boomers are reaching retirement age every day Each of them needs to know precisely how to get Social Securitys best deal But Pauls best movesor Larrys or Phils, for that matterarent necessarily yours The Social Security system is governed by 2,728 core rules and thousands upon thousands of additional codicils in its Program Operating Manual, which supposedly clarify those rules In the case of married couples alone, the formula for each spouses benefit comprises 10 complex mathematical functions, one of which is in four dimensions This book contains minimal math, excepting the simple formula presented in this note.3 Rather, it explains in the simplest possible terms the traps to avoid and basic strategies to employ in maximizing a households Social Security retirement, spousal, child, mother father, survivor, divorce, and disability benefits That covers a whole lot of ground, which is why this book is not as succinct as we and you might like We will point out Social Securitys windfalls and pitfallsexplain obscure benefits and obscure penalties benefit collection strategies like file a restricted application take one benefit while letting your retirement benefit grow and start, stop, start starting benefits, stopping them, and restarting them Well also describe Social Securitys deeming rules being forced, in some cases, to take certain benefits early at a very big cost and related gotchas that can handicap you financially for the rest of your life Well explain Social Securitys significant incentives to get divorced, to get married, or to live in sin, depending on your circumstances Do you know about Social Securitys hidden payoff for working late in life About the Earnings Test deduction of benefits at certain ages from earning too much that isnt necessarily a test at all Do you know that you generally get the Earnings Test deductions back in full, inflation adjusted, if you live to full retirement age and beyond How about the Family Maximum Benefit the limit to benefits your family can collect based on your work record Its actually not a maximum Its also unfairly low for poor, disabled workers Throughout, well emphasize the often huge payoff from waiting to collect benefits But well also explain lots of situations where its best not to wait Well even throw in the mythical man with four ex wives who could theoretically collect divorced or widower benefits on each of them The ever surprising and often frustrating Social Security sudoku puzzle goes on and on Were here to solve it Were also relieved that you came to us to learn about Social Security and arent relying solely on Social Securitys advice Frankly, Social Security is not the first place wed send you to learn how to maximize your lifetime benefits With the exception of the systems small number of technical experts including Jerry Lutz, mentioned above , many of Social Securitys official or phone support staff are insufficiently trained or too beleaguered to dispense uniformly correct information or advice about the systems ins and outs And they arent supposed to give advice anyway Were going to provide specific examples of people losing lots of money by believing or following what the well meaning folks at Social Security told them Unfortunately, the local Social Security office is single stop shopping for most retirees making their benefit decisions And many of them are waiting pretty late in the game before even thinking about managing what for most retirees is their largest financial asset At the surface level, Social Security is complex because it has so many seemingly crazy rules At a deeper level, its complexity reflects social policy that, when translated into practice, produces results that often defy common sense An example is paying survivor benefits, based on the work records of ex spouses, to the divorced who remarry, but only if they remarry after reaching age 60 Get remarried at 59 and 364 days and youre out of luck Another perversity is paying benefits to mothers or fathers of young children if their spouse is collecting retirement benefits, but only if the parents are married If the parents are divorced and under 62, too bad The result is a government retirement system that few if any can decipher without the kind of help provided here And yet, for most people, Social Security is their only retirement option Moreover, given the virtual disappearance of company pensions, except for those grandparented under old plans, and the failure of most Americans either to contribute or contribute fully to 401 k , IRA, and other retirement accounts, Social Security is, well, pretty much it for pretty much all of us Our book is organized around general lessons, supporting examples, specific game plans tailored to your situation, and answers to actual questions posed to Larry in his enormously popular Ask Larry column, which appears weekly on Pauls PBS NewsHour Making Sen e website A warning that well issue up front and reiterate throughout the book we will often repeat ourselves The worst that can happen, we figure, is that youll simply skim and skip ahead Much worse would be your forgetting some of your key options and thus nullifying, at least for yourself, the whole point of Get Whats Yours And for those of you who might think the repetitions betray a lack of confidence in our readers, know that we authors ourselves still check our notes on these items when we hit the key age milestones, despite having written about Social Security for years PAUL AND JAN GOT WHATS THEIRS PHIL AND CHERYL WILL GET THEIRS TIME TO GET WHATS YOURS This book was born of Pauls first Social Security epiphany with Larry We wrote it to help people like you, who dont happen to know Larry, get every last penny Social Security owes you Weve spent a huge amount of time trying to come up with clear, correct answers to questions we all face so you dont have to And weve now rewritten it to account for the sudden changes made to the system in the budget bill signed into law on November 2, 2015 Thus there is a new chapter on the new law, and a new one on Medicare and Social Security, drawing upon Phils new book, Get Whats Yours for Medicare We have also included new horror stories weve heard about Social Securitys inconsistencies and bad advice, about the new treatment of the disabled introduced in late 2014 as the book had already gone to press, and new secrets we discovered since the book came out Finally, we think that even though entitlement has become a dirty word in policy debates, its than legitimate for you to feel entitled to your benefits Its a feeling deeply rooted in all those years of FICA payments, buttressed by the annual Social Security statements itemizing your past contributions and projecting your future benefits, and guaranteed by our politicians unwavering promises to defend the system and what it owes you The promises may be suspect, but you have been forking over payroll taxes your entire working life you deserve to get what you paid for and its the law.Getting smart about Social Security can put tens of thousands of extra dollars in your pocket With that in mind, start by reading, Get Whats Yours The book translatesinto
