Monthly Tip: Test Your Social Security Knowledge
(Updated: 2/11/2016)

True or False: If you were born in 1953 or earlier, you can still take advantage of some of the social security maximization strategies that will be eliminated as a result of the Bipartisan Budget Act of 2015.


Answer: True.

If you were born in 1953 or earlier, you may still be able to file a restricted application for spousal benefits. And if you were born on April 30, 1950, or earlier, you may still be able to file and suspend your social security application.
