Publisher's Summary

Social Security is an American insurance program which pays out millions of dollars each year. It represents one among many complex government programs. The Social Security program is very hard to understand and use. For example, each companion's benefit for married couples includes 10 mathematical functions. In general, this program has more instructions in the Program Operating Manual System (POMS), than the Federal Tax Code does.

This guide presents a basic approach for using the Social Security program, expanding an ordinary Social Security benefit to one with parent, child, matrimonial, divorcee, survivor, and benefits for disability. The authors explain just how signing up for benefits and not receiving them, or starting, pausing, and restarting benefits can help people achieve more out of this program. The guide also talks about risks associated with the Social Security program.

This summary provides an informal critique and summary of the main topics and messages of the guide. It also contains more information about the guide itself, as well as important studies and documents about the future and present benefits of Social Security.

This summary is aimed for those who want to capture the gist of the book but don't have the current time to devour the whole book. You get the main summary along with all of the benefits and lessons the actual book has to offer. Ant Hive Media reads every chapter, extracts the understanding, and leaves you with a new perspective and time to spare. We do the work so you can understand the book in minutes, not hours.

What made the experience of listening to Summary of 'Get What's Yours' Revised the most enjoyable?

This audio book novella is a summary of the book Get What's Yours.: Secrets to Maxing out Social Security. The book organizes major topics, like partnerships, disability, early retirement in chapter format, making it easier to find the topics you need. I was compelled to listen to this because I started the book but have not been able to check it out at the library as it's so popular. The book intrigued me with tricks for getting more $$ from social security, but unfortunately this summary did not mention this.

What does Eddie Leonard Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narrator did a good job reading this book. His voice is clear and well modulated.

Any additional comments?

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Everything

Would you ever listen to anything by Ant Hive Media again?

No

What does Eddie Leonard Jr. bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

He brings a modicum of excitement and enjoyment to an otherwise awful book. In fact, he is the only positive and redeeming factor. Without listening to him, I would have stopped a lot earlier.

Who do you think would benefit most from listening to Summary of 'Get What's Yours' Revised?

No one, I don't think it will help anyone with an average IQ or above

I Didn't Know How To Rate 'Story'-This Is Summary

Would you try another book from Ant Hive Media and/or Eddie Leonard Jr.?


I'm not sure that Ant Hive Media would have anything in my genre to listen to. I would certainly try something that was of interest to me.

I would listen to another book by Eddie Leonard Junior

What was most disappointing about Ant Hive Media’s story?

There was nothing disappointing, it is just a summary of a full-length book (I assume) on Social Security. I may recommend the book to my parents who are of the age where this would be pertinent to them.

Have you listened to any of Eddie Leonard Jr.’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes, I have listened to other performances by Eddie Leonard Junior. He is like a chameleon, his voice adapts to whatever he is narrating. He is a talented performer.

What did you take away from Summary of 'Get What's Yours' Revised that you can apply to your work?

Fortunately or unfortunately, there is nothing in the Summary Of 'Get What's Yours' that affects me right now. However, it does sound like a very useful guide as one approaches the age when one would receive Social Security. There where some tips; such as working a few more years will reward you with a substantial increase in your Social Security check.
