  3. The maximum SS benefit in 2017 rises to $2687.
  4. Medicare will increase to $134 per month for people 65 and older who do not yet collect Social Security benefits, higher-income retirees subject to a premium surcharge, and those who will be enrolling in Part B for the first time in 2017.

We do not handle Medicare issues, but wanted to include this information to our readers. Also, the cap on SS wages is going to increase from $118,500 to $127,200.

Getting your Social Security benefits right the first time is essential, as it is basically a permanent decision. There are 10,000 Boomers retiring each and every day and 40% regret the decision they made…..don’t find yourself in this category. We have your back on this one!!
