New Social Security Tool Helps Americans "Get More Benefits"

LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwire - Jul 20, 2011) - Social Security Solutions, Inc. has announced the launch of a revolutionary web-based tool that helps you maximize Social Security benefits and tells you exactly when you should begin benefits.

Given the challenging economic environment, many Americans are worried about running out of money in retirement. Unfortunately, most are not aware that taking Social Security at age 62 is seldom the best option. Many married couples can add hundreds of thousands of dollars to their lifetime cumulative benefits by using the rules of Social Security to their full advantage. While other Social Security calculators exist, none is as powerful as this one, which allows you to analyze multiple strategies and compare them side-by-side.

This new consumer tool was developed by the recognized experts in Social Security retirement benefits based on their research published in the Journal of Financial Planning and the subject of their new book, Social Security Strategies: How to Optimize Retirement Benefits, available on

The new tool, found at, is designed to help you make the best possible decision about when to begin Social Security and is coded with all of the complex variables that impact your retirement benefits. With only a few pieces of information you input, the tool is able to analyze the Social Security rules that apply to your situation, compare scenarios for selecting benefits, and recommend a claiming strategy to maximize benefits. The tool also delivers the specific dates you, or you and your spouse, should begin benefits. In addition, the site is chock-full of education about Social Security benefits and how to navigate the application process.

"A good claiming strategy can often garner hundreds of thousands of dollars more in cumulative lifetime benefits for a married couple. Our value proposition is simple: we get you more," notes company CEO and founder William Meyer. "The rules are complicated, and the Social Security Administration cannot provide advice on when to take benefits. Our software will allow consumers to compare benefit claiming strategies side-by-side and select the one that is best for their personal situation."

The tool has three levels to choose from: Deluxe (recommended strategy and customized, printable report), Premier Online (recommended strategy, customized report and the ability to compare unlimited scenarios), and Premier Plus (all the components of the Online option plus a one-on-one consultation with a Social Security Specialist).
