Social Security Solutions to Make Benefit Planning Easier With Help From the Social Security Administration

LEAWOOD, KS--(Marketwired - Jul 15, 2015) - Social Security Solutions, Inc., the market leader in Social Security claiming software and the recognized expert on benefit claiming strategies, has announced it will be making retirement benefit planning easier with the help of the Social Security Administration.

The creators of the consistently top-rated Social Security software have long been on the forefront of Social Security claiming advice. Soon they will be incorporating into their software a transferrable data file that will be made available to consumers by the Social Security Administration. This file will include the earnings history, which will be easily uploaded into the Social Security Solutions software.

The Social Security Solutions tool already accepts the input of earnings, both historical and projected, to accurately calculate the monthly benefits payable for any month in retirement and to recommend the best claiming strategy to maximize retirement benefits. This new transferable data file will allow consumers to quickly upload the information rather than key in annual earnings.

"We applaud the Social Security Administration for making the transferable data files available to consumers," stated Bill Meyer, founder and CEO of Social Security Solutions, Inc. "Using earnings is definitely the most reliable way of calculating benefits, particularly for consumers who have inconsistent earnings or who don't plan to work to full retirement age or beyond. Giving consumers access to this information is a step in the right direction by the Social Security Administration."

About the Social Security Solutions Software

Found at, the software is designed to help you make the best possible decision about when to begin Social Security and is coded with all of the complex variables that can impact retirement benefits. With only a few pieces of information you input, the tool is able to analyze the Social Security rules that apply to your situation, compare scenarios for selecting benefits, and recommend a claiming strategy to maximize benefits. The tool also delivers the specific dates you, or you and your spouse, should begin benefits. In addition, the site is chock-full of educational material about Social Security benefits and how to navigate the application process.

The tool has levels of service to choose from including Personalized Report (recommended strategy and customized, printable report), Plus (recommended strategy, customized report and the ability to compare unlimited scenarios), and Premier (all the components of the Plus option with a one-on-one consultation with a Social Security Specialist). In addition, a more robust version of the software with additional analytical features is available to financial practitioners at
