Top Stocks To Watch Right Now

Around a third of Americans expect that Social Security will be a major source of retirement income. And they’re right. Since Americans have saved far too little for retirement, a majority of retirees depend on Social Security to provide at least half their household income.

Here’s the problem. Not only is Social Security not designed to replace so much of your pre-retirement income, but many people end up making their Social Security benefits smaller than they should be. This happens because Americans don’t understand how to maximize the money they’ll receive from Social Security. 

You may be one of those Americans — unless you’re aware that these three things will make your Social Security benefits smaller.

Social Security calculates the standard benefit you’ll receive by using a formula that determines your average wages over your career, adjusted to account for inflation. The period of time Social Security looks at is 35 years. If you’ve worked less than 35 years when your average is calculated, your average wage will be much smaller.
