The concept of Social Security is simple: the government retains part of your paycheck, and then gives it back to you when you retire. Seems pretty straightforward, right?
But did you know there are 2,728 core rules surrounding Social Security? Or that Social Security is a major source of income for 67% of current retirees? Or that the amount you receive varies depending on when you decide to start taking payments
If those facts come as a surprise, you're not alone. More than 40% of Americans lack basic knowledge about how Social Security factors into their retirement.

Fortunately, you don't have to figure it out on your own. We're always standing by to help. Regardless of your situation, it's important to develop a plan that is flexible, smart, and makes sure you're getting the most out of your Social Security benefits. After all, you've earned it!
