The graph above was taken from this post by Donna Pavetti at RealClearPolicy. “TANF” is the federal program Temporary Assistance for Needy Families. Basically, it’s what now exists of what used to be called “welfare”. How do you interpret it?
Due to a change in Social Security regulations that took place on April 30th 2016, you can now add as much as a potential $570 to your monthly benefits… Just by contacting the SS administration and saying ONE simple word.
That’s an extra $6,840 a year!
