The pitch is simple: Laurence Kotlikoff’s book (“Get What’s Yours: The Secrets To Maxing Out Your Social Security”) will help you get tens of thousands of dollars in social security benefits you didn’t know were yours. It’s not a get-rich-quick scheme, it’s a primer on what you need to know about when to claim the money the government is holding for you. I’ve read the book and was happy to invite Kotlikoff onto my show to reveal some of what’s inside, including why you shouldn’t start taking benefits when you’re 62 and how you can claim extra benefits as a spouse, widow, or child.

This is info that no one has told you about — including the Social Security office, where most employees don’t even know the details of the program. Listen, then click here to subscribe to these podcasts via iTunes!
