What You Don’t Know About Social Security Benefits Can Affect Your Claim

A portion of most workers’ paychecks go towards their Social Security benefits. But while millions of Americans are paying into this program, very few understand the policies that regulate it. Knowing the subtleties of these rules can add hundreds of dollars per month in benefits.

An article from The Wall Street Journal explains there are several things about the Social Security program that can have serious effects on many Americans’ ability to collect Social Security benefits. One of the biggest problems with the program is its complexity. In fact, the Social Security Administration’s handbook states there is too much information for them to include it all in the publication.

Other areas of concern within the Social Security program are their current lack of manpower available to process the growing number of claims and appeals.

Each of these issues plays a significant role in Social Security workers’ inability to provide applicants with guidance and direction about how to get the maximum benefits available.
