Social Security for Singles

According to the U.S. Census Bureau, in 2021, 34% of adults aged 15 and older had never been married. And nearly one-third of single adult men live with a parent. In fact, if you read this article in TIME magazine, you’ll discover that “marriage is becoming an increasingly elite institution – people get married for economic advantages.” Married? It’s very rare for a married couple to die on the same day, meaning, one of them will be single later in life managing day-to-day finances alone.
Join us today as we switch the conversation from couples to singles. Our guest, Bob Simpson from the Social Security Office, will share some valuable information for those making decisions about Social Security alone.
