Average Social Security Benefits in 2022

The average senior couple on Social Security will receive $2,753 per month.  Full article here.

    • Bill,
      If you wait and apply for your Social Security benefit to start in July of 2022, your benefit will be 32% more than it would have been at your full retirement age of 66. Congratulations on choosing an excellent Social Security claiming strategy. If you have any further questions about your benefits, please feel free to call us at 1.888.750.2622 or email us at
