Social Security is a maze - extremely complex with rules, exceptions to the rules, exceptions to the exceptions, etc. Having subscribed to Mary Beth’s Social Security e-books for a number of years, I am so impressed at how she provides such relevant information in a condensed, easy to read format. She covers not only the basics but so many items that are off the beaten path, so to speak, as they are often not known or easily forgettable. Including various questions and answers also puts reality (a face) to the information and makes it come alive, so to speak. I consider ‘Maximizing Social Security Retirement Benefits’ an indispensable resource and can attest to the value-added it has provided me in dealing with this topic. Kudos to Mary Beth Franklin for her efforts and desire to continue to update and inform her original work.
