    A pretty well put together starting course. Covers all of the basics. This is truly a 101 course. Good for those just starting to understand the Social Security system. It is updated to reflect the huge change to some filing options (2015) than now no longer exist. There is adequate discussion of the history of SS, to better understand how society has changed. There is some side notes regarding how other countries' SS equivalent's goals. I understand that this book is written to the majority of A pretty well put together starting course. Covers all of the basics. This is truly a 101 course. Good for those just starting to understand the Social Security system. It is updated to reflect the huge change to some filing options (2015) than now no longer exist. There is adequate discussion of the history of SS, to better understand how society has changed. There is some side notes regarding how other countries' SS equivalent's goals. I understand that this book is written to the majority of the population and takes into account the actual actions of the masses. Since Americans fail to save for the future and make poor investment choices, just about everyone suggests one delay taking SS payments until the last minute at age 70. But if you are reading this book in advance of retirement, then you are a planner and likely an investor. Some tools should be provided to help those determine if there is a different optimum retirement date to start their SS benefit. And a "Break Even" analysis table is provided (at the same time it is discounted as not considered a proper discussion by the SSA). The inference made by the table is that if you delay taking you SS benefit to FRA or Age 70, then you must be working to support yourself during the interim. To better compare those options, I would assume money not received while waiting for FRA or beyond, must come from your savings and should be deducted from the FRA and Age 70 columns. The sad reality is that some of us may never be able to afford to retire in our lifetimes, especially those of us who fail to plan ahead. We all need to wake up to the facts. Every SS discussion made uses the SSA approach of NO interest or COLA adjustments for comparison purposes. This simplifies some of the calculations, but does not allow one to fine tune the analysis to their personal situation. Unfortunately, I have seen most of the discussion in this book already. I really am ready to move up to the upper division - 201 course. I would have also liked to see discussion on how to calculate the PIA and AIME for my personal situation. I know these calculations are even more sensitive to annual updates, but an example as to how to run the calculation would better my understanding of the system. Have a GoodReads and if you are reading this review, Good Luck on your long and happy retirement.

    A solid and concise beginners' overview of the often-confusing mess that is our Social Security program(s). I'd recommend everyone read it: if you're approaching "that age" and don't understand what's over the horizon - it offers good directive knowledge. If you're younger and just starting out professionally - start with a base understanding of where your money goes and what may or may not be available to you in later years.

    This book reminds me of the Bible for Children. Lies and all the gore glossed over so that both children and adults have a vague impression of why they have to give money to the Church.

    Just OK. Much cut and paste from SSA website. Some significant misinformation regarding benefits while continuing to work. Too much filler - inconsequential and unrelated to subject at hand.
