What Every Woman Should Know About Social Security

6a0133f3fc5805970b01b8d06d4983970c-320wiWhat Every Woman Should Know is an valuable booklet published by the Social Security Administration.

Family child care providers care for their own children, their spouses and their daycare children.

Taking care of yourself is just as important.

The bedrock of your retirement income is likely to be your Social Security benefits. Therefore, you want to know:

* How do I qualify for Social Security benefits (including disability benefits)?

* How can I estimate my Social Security benefits using the Social Security estimator?

* What Social Security benefits might I be eligible for if I am divorced or a widow?

* When should I begin taking my Social Security benefits?

This booklet answers these questions and more. It is a useful starting place to begin understanding the basics of Social Security.

I’ve written other articles about Social Security:

“How to Qualify to Receive Social Security Benefits”

“Key Questions Answered About Social Security”

“Social Security Made Simple”

  1. Tom,
    How do we get the booklet? In your book Family Child Care Money Management and Retirement Guide, do you discuss optimizing social security payments>

  2. Click on the first words in my article and you will see the booklet. Here’s the direct link: http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pubs/EN-05-10127.pdf
    My book contains a six page section on Social Security that doesn’t discuss optimizing payments. I’d refer you to this publication: http://www.tomcopelandblog.com/2013/06/social-security-made-simple.html
