Social Security 101 - Investopedia

Sometimes, we get so caught up in the details we can’t, as the saying goes, “see the forest for the trees.” Social Security is, of course, a fundamentally complex program simply because it is designed to accommodate many millions of people with an almost uncountable number of unique circumstances. But, there are also some pretty basic elements which establish the foundation for Social Security, America’s most important retirement program, and that basic foundation is very nicely explained in this Investopedia article by Wendy Connett. Even though you may have some unique circumstances which go beyond the basics, understanding how the program was conceived, how it has evolved over the years, and how it is fundamentally structured today, will be an excellent base for addressing your personal situation. Click here to read the Investopedia article entitled “Social Security Guide.”

Also, if you’re unsure about how these basics apply to you, or if you have any questions about your individual situation under Social Security, note that the AMAC Foundation provides a free-to-the-public service to help Americans navigate the complexities of this program. Learn more about it here…
