Book Information

The following content was provided by the publisher.
This new title is an organized collection of actual questions asked by individuals from around the country to Social Security benefits expert Stanley A. Tomkiel, III. The questions are derived from emails received from real people asking real-life questions about various areas of concern for themselves and their family members. These are not academic inquiries, but rather those seeking practical answers to specific issues in people's lives.
General information about the Social Security Administration, plus additional data about Medicare and SSI (Supplemental Security Insurance) is given. Questions and answers are then divided into categories such as:
--Child's benefits
--Disability benefits
--Parents' benefits
--Retirement benefits
--Spouse's benefits
--Survivor's benefits
Additional questions and answers are also included, relating to:
--Earnings statements
--Calculations of benefits
--Necessary timelines for application of benefits
