Congratulations on your new report formats.

The most useful part is the Additional Notes section which tells SS applicants the Social Security Procedure Manual Reference. They will need that when they try to get Social Security personnel to implement the 70/70 + Spouse Spousal benefits strategy. Thank you also for indicating this strategy cannot be done on-line. It took several visits to the Social Security office to straighten out what we had attempted to do on-line.

Best $20

I considering buying this app for several months, but didn't want to spend money on something not reviewed and one I could already figure out by using a couple of formulas and dates in Excel. I am married and both my spouse and I have worked for enough years to qualify for benefits now. We had planned on waiting until both were beyond retirement age to maximize our benefits (8% gain each year for each year you defer retirement). I had no idea that it was possible to continue to grow our accounts while one of us could take a spousal benefit for a few years in the meantime.

After entering a small amount of information, the application automatically calculated nine different scenarios. Each shows a strategy based on your age, the locked in amount you'll receive at the time you apply for benefits, current laws, etc. The unknown is always each person's life expectancy. Calculations can only be correct if you live exactly as long as the assumptions. The application allows you to do what-if scenarios if you think you'll live less or more than the average.

By taking the advise of one of the scenarios and applying for benefits on different dates than we had planned, we will receive over $20,000 more in benefits in the long run. I had never considered this option; never thought it possible. My $20 expense could net $20,000. You do the math.

Maximize your Social Security

I initially bought it to calculate numbers for my husband and me, then I was so amazed by the differences in the potential collection scenarios it presented that I decided to write about it.

The scenario that worked best for us was one I would never have contemplated.

It sounds complicated, but it nets us nearly $90,000 more over about 15 years than if we both waited until full retirement age to collect.

This could be an enlightening exercise for everyone.

There's an abysmal lack of understanding regarding the options available in the Social Security claiming strategies.

When I tell friends that they may be throwing away hundreds of thousands of dollars by taking SS early, they just look around for my spaceship.

You've filled a void and done it in a very professional way.

This tool addresses a critical need.

Thanks!

Everything A-OK--just ran the data and it makes sense.
Your software is what I have been looking for the past few years.

I would be happy to recommend you.
