When Should I Take Social Security Benefits?

A recently published book on social security may be just the tool you need. The book is Get What's Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security, by Laurence J. Kotlikoff, a Professor of Economics at Boston University. And don't worry, the book is not full of equations, but instead easy to read and to understand.

Is social security really so complicated that I need to shell out $12.40 (as of April 9, 2015 at Amazon.com) to know  at what age I should start taking my benefits? Um, yes, as Janet Novak over at Forbes points out, "[B]y Kotlikoff’s reckoning, the Social Security Administration has 2,728 rules and  the formula for determining the benefits of a married spouse 'involves 10 complex mathematical functions, one of which is in four dimensions.'"

Ms. Novak also points out some helpful tools to help you calculate at what age to start taking benefits. One, from AARP is free. The other, from the book's author is $40 annually, although I am not sure why one would need the tool on an annual subscription basis. Here is the link to Maximize My Social Security.

Let Her Go Lyrics by Passenger

Lovely song.
Lyrics for Let Her Go By Passenger

Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
Staring at the bottom of your glass
Hoping one day you'll make a dream last
But dreams come slow and they go so fast
You see her when you close your eyes
Maybe one day you'll understand why
Everything you touch, oh it dies
But you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
Staring at the ceiling in the dark
Same old empty feeling in your heart
'Cause love comes slow and it goes so fast
Well you see her when you fall asleep
But never to touch and never to keep
'Cause you loved her too much and you dive too deep
Well you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
And you let her go
Oh oh oh no
Well you let her go
'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
'Cause you only need the light when it's burning low
Only miss the sun when it starts to snow
Only know you love her when you let her go
Only know you've been high when you're feeling low
Only hate the road when you're missing home
Only know you love her when you let her go
And you let her go
