Frazier Allen: The new Social Security claiming rules

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Growing up, many of us viewed Social Security as a continuation of our work income, something we’d automatically receive upon retirement. Then reality struck, and we learned there’s more to claiming and receiving Social Security benefits.

So much more. And the strategies to maximize this important source of retirement income can be complicated.

One strategy, known as “file and suspend,” became popular among married couples. The higher earning spouse would file for Social Security benefits once he or she reached full retirement age (FRA) – and immediately suspend them.

Goodbye, File and Suspend. Now What? New rules eliminated this Social Security claiming strategy, but there are other options.

NASA’s Kepler space telescope data reveals insights into Planet Migration

 

Written by Steve Koppes
University of Chicago

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationChicago, IL – The four planets of the Kepler-223 star system appeared to have little in common with the planets of our own solar system today. But a new study using data from NASA’s Kepler space telescope suggests a possible commonality in the distant past.

The Kepler-223 planets orbit their star in the same configuration that Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus and Neptune may have had in the early history of our solar system, before migrating to their current locations.
