I’m Joe Carbone, creator of Social Security Teacher. My goal is to help you make educated choices in regard to one of the most important financial decisions of your life.
Why build a blog about Social Security benefits, you ask? Simple: I enjoy helping people and during my “day job” as a CERTIFIED FINANCIAL PLANNER™ professional, this is one of the most important topics discussed. Yet, it is also one of the most confusing and one that puts a tremendous amount of stress on choosing the right strategy.
First things first: Do you have an online Social Security account?
No? Let’s create one!
Click on “Sign In or Create an Account.”
Click on “Create An Account,” on the bottom-left corner.
Once you have created an account, sign in.
For a quick tutorial, watch the video below for step-by-step instruction:
Now that you have your online account set up, you are ready to explore and learn about how to maximize your Social Security benefits. I have spent many hours building out helpful resources to help you do just that.
