Many women have a lot of questions about Social Security as it will be a huge part of what we can afford in the next chapter of our life. For many retirees, Social Security is the only source of guaranteed income they can count on for the rest of their life no matter how long they live. Women tend to live longer than men and they often spend their final years alone due to widowhood, divorce or having never married. Therefore, it is critical for women to understand how they earn their Social Security benefits and when to claim them to maximize their retirement income.
