The New York Times recently ran an article, 7 of Your Most Burning Questions on Social Security (With Answers).
The questions include the future of Social Security, spousal and survivors benefits, the length of benefits, delayed retirement vs. “break even” claiming, the lowered amount of benefits for those who temporarily leave the work force for caregiving, taxing benefits, and self-employment.
These are all really good questions (I hope they do another article, cause we all know there are more than 7 burning questions.) The answers are clear and to the point. I plan to have my students read the article before we cover the topic this fall semester (which will be starting before we know it!) You should read it, too!
