Motley Fool Guide to Social Security Benefits

Here's a brief guide to 2019 Social Security benefits:

How much does the average retiree get from Social Security? 

The SSA estimates that the average retired worker will receive a benefit of $1,461 in January 2019 after next year's 2.8% cost-of-living adjustment is applied.

However, it's important to emphasize that Social Security benefits vary significantly based on how much recipients earn throughout their careers and when they choose to file. Some retirees receive far less than the average, while others get much more.
