Social Security and Medicare benefits can be complicated and overwhelming, so a book that presents information in clear and organized way is handy to have for those who need to make decisions about when to start receiving those benefits and which benefits to enroll in. This book is such a book.

Easy to navigate to exactly the plan you need help with, as easy to understand as a snarly bureaucracy can be made, & as before, extremely helpful, useful, concise, up-to-date information. Highly recommended.

This definitely helped me make decisions about when to apply for Social Security & what options are most beneficial in MediCare. Be aware that it is 2019 information, though & some things have changed.
Looking forward to the 2020 edition.
