Social Security Fundamentals for Those Aging In

As we’ve said many times in posts on this site, Social Security is quite complex, especially for those just beginning to take a look at how and when they should claim their earned benefits. For example, there’s the issue of one’s full retirement age and how filing before or after that age can impact monthly benefits. Then, there’s the issue of ensuring your eligibility for benefits in the first place, the actual methodology for calculating benefits, and (of course) nuances like how benefits are taxed for individuals above certain limits. All in all, it can be pretty daunting for someone taking a “first look” at the program.
