National Expert Heather Schreiber In USA TODAY
Heather Schreiber RICP® said during an interview with USA TODAY that the congressionally approved annual Cost of Living Adjustment (COLA) to Social Security may cause beneficiaries to spend more cautiously.
"Retirees living on a fixed budget may need to consider tightening the reins in areas of nonessential spending and, if necessary, work with a reputable financial professional to help guide them in making the monies they have saved for retirement work smarter," says Schreiber. "If you haven't claimed Social Security yet consider waiting – though not beyond age 70 – to file for your benefits." That way, Schreiber says, your monthly check will increase.
