Can Kids and Ex-Spouses Receive Social Security Benefits?- Season 6: Episode 10

The topic of Social Security always brings with it many questions, which isn’t surprising, given the complex nature of the program. Beyond the most popular questions, though, are a few that may impact you, even if you didn’t think to ask about them.

The answer to each of these questions is yes — if.  What are the “ifs” you need to know about?  Have a listen to this week’s episode of Managing Your Financial Future, with podcast host Johnny Dean and “Professor” Rick Plum, CFP® and find out more!
