Social Security is something we know is there but do you know what your benefits are, when you can receive them and how do you get them. In this episode, I talk with Social Security Expert, Lizna Odhwani about the ins and outs of Social Security. Liz is a Social Insurance Specialist at Social Security Administration. She shares the latest news on Social Security, how you can find answers to your situation, and the resources you can use.
