Social Security 1

April is Social Security month and Rhonda Whitenack joins the show for a Social Security check up. 

Questions Answered Include: 

  • If I have a history of heart disease in my family, is it smarter to start taking social security money early to save for healthcare costs or wait to see if I can get more if I’m still healthy when I retire?
  • I was married for just over 30 years and he took care of all the money. He passed away at 51 and we had no retirement plan. Now I’m 62 and I have a small retirement plan but I don't know if I have enough time to build it up at this age to have enough for retirement.
