Some people believe that those who were born between the years 1917 and 1921 are not receiving the same Social Security benefits as other recipients. This is referred to as the “Notch”. If you believe that you are in the “Notch” and aren't receiving enough benefits, you should know that in 1994 Congress looked at the issue and determined that everyone was receiving fair benefits. The most important step you can take is to remain informed and educated on the matter. Work with your Financial Planner and Investment Advisors, and if you feel you need to contact your legislators, due so equipped with as much knowledge as possible.
