Grab This Social Security Benefit Now Before It Disappears

Philip Moeller writes in Yahoo Finance Money........"A deadline is looming for a popular Social Security claiming strategy. After April 29, the option to file-and-suspend your retirement benefit—a popular option for married couples—will end for most pre-retirees.

The file-and-suspend strategy allowed one spouse to take a full spousal benefit for up to four years, while both spouses deferred their own retirement benefits as late as age 70. The strategy was popularized in a book I co-authored, “Get What’s Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security.” I guess the book did its job too well—we’ve been told that it led to a surge in file-and-suspend filings, which prompted the rule changes. I’ll have a bit more to say about this in a moment."
