Whether you're a woman or a man, young or old, just beginning to work or contemplating retirement, it's important to look at social security and think about your future.
Over half of the beneficiaries of the users of social security are women. According to Jack Myers, now more women than ever are in the workforce.
While often most frequently associated with retirement, Social Security can be used for more than retirement benefits. Myers indicates no matter how you plan, things don't always turn out the way they're supposed to and you may need Social Security much sooner than you think.
Myers adds that when you do reach retirement age, you should should analyze your health and needs when considering collecting benefits.
