Who is helped-If you are deceased and your ex spouse remarries after age 60, they may be eligible for social security based on either your work or new spouse’s work, which ever is higher. The survivors receive a percentage of your basic socially security. Those individual can be helped a lot because it is usually in the range from 75 to 100 percent. Who is hurt- Everyone knows that social security is to provide supplemental income to retirement needs but what many people do not know is that it can damage your retirement years. Two forms can be with other benefits that are involved and early age. For other benefits, you never want to cancel those thinking that social security will pick up because these are the most difficult benefits to receive. For age purposes, majority of the people start receiving these benefits regardless starting at the age of 62. You never want to start your benefits early unless you are really retired because for every $2 of earned income over $15,000, your social security benefits will be reduced by a buck. It will be subjected to the discounted benefit forevermore.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
