Get what's yours : the secrets to maxing out your social security by Laurence J Kotlikoff( Book )
16 editions published between 2015 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,746 libraries worldwide
"Learn the secrets to maximizing your Social Security benefits and earn up to thousands of dollars more each year with expert advice that you can't get anywhere else. Want to know how to navigate the forbidding maze of Social Security and emerge with the highest possible benefits? You could try reading all 2,728 rules of the Social Security system (and the thousands of explanations of these rules), but Kotlikoff, Moeller, and Solman explain Social Security benefits in an easy to understand and user-friendly style. What you don't know can seriously hurt you: wrong decisions about which Social Security benefits to apply for cost some individual retirees tens of thousands of dollars in lost income every year. How many retirees or those nearing retirement know about such Social Security options as file and suspend (apply for benefits and then don't take them)? Or start stop start (start benefits, stop them, then re-start them)? Or--just as important--when and how to use these techniques? Get What's Yours covers the most frequent benefit scenarios faced by married retired couples, by divorced retirees, by widows and widowers, among others. It explains what to do if you're a retired parent of dependent children, disabled, or an eligible beneficiary who continues to work, and how to plan wisely before retirement. It addresses the tax consequences of your choices, as well as the financial implications for other investments. Many personal finance books briefly address Social Security, but none offers the thorough, authoritative, yet conversational analysis found here. You've paid all your working life for these benefits. Now, get what's yours"--

The clash of generations : saving ourselves, our kids, and our economy by Laurence J Kotlikoff( Book )
17 editions published between 2012 and 2014 in English and held by 672 libraries worldwide
The United States is bankrupt, flat broke. Thanks to accounting that would make Enron blush, America's insolvency goes far beyond what our leaders are disclosing. The United States is a fiscal basket case, in worse shape than the notoriously bailed-out countries of Greece, Ireland, and others. How did this happen? In The Clash of Generations, experts Laurence Kotlikoff and Scott Burns document our six-decade, off-balance-sheet, unsustainable financing scheme. They explain how we have balanced our longer lives on the backs of our (relatively few) children. At the same time, we've been on a consumption spree, saving and investing less than nothing. And that's not to mention the evisceration of the middle class and a financial system that has proven it can't be trusted. Kotlikoff and Burns outline grassroots strategies for saving ourselves--and especially our children--from what could be a truly catastrophic financial collapse. Kotlikoff and Burns sounded the alarm in their widely acclaimed The Coming Generational Storm, but politicians didn't listen. Now the need for action is even more urgent. It's up to us to demand radical reform of our tax system, our healthcare system, and our Social Security system, and to insist on better paths to investment return than those provided by Wall Street (mis)managers. Kotlikoff and Burns's "Purple Plans" (so called because they will appeal to both Republicans and Democrats) have been endorsed by a who's who of economists and offer a new way forward; and their revolutionary investment strategy for individuals replaces the idea of financial capital with "life decision capital." Of course, we won't be doing all this just for ourselves. We need to fix America's fiscal mess before our kids inherit it
What determines savings? by Laurence J Kotlikoff( Book )
12 editions published in 1989 in English and held by 630 libraries worldwide
What determines savings? The question is timely and important. The U.S. saving rate is less than half of Japan, Germany and other developed countries. This imbalance in saving rates is responsible in the large part for the imbalance in international trade. This book examines an array of key determinants of wealth accumulation, including bequest and precautionary saving motives, the length of retirement, demographics, the tax structure, social security, and insurance institutions

Fully revised and carefully updated in light of the new law, Get What's Yours is the indispensable guide to collecting the maximum Social Security benefits possible."--Page [4] of cover
Essays on saving, bequests, altruism, and life-cycle planning by Laurence J Kotlikoff( Book )
14 editions published between 2000 and 2016 in English and held by 281 libraries worldwide
This collection of essays, coauthored with other distinguished economists, offers new perspectives on saving, intergenerational economic ties, retirement planning, and the distribution of wealth. The book links life-cycle microeconomic behavior to important macroeconomic outcomes, including the roughly 50 percent postwar decline in America's rate of saving and its increasing wealth inequality. The book traces these outcomes to the government's five-decade-long policy of transferring, in the form of annuities, ever larger sums from young savers to old spenders. The book presents new theoretica
The wage carrot and the pension stick : retirement benefits and labor force participation by Laurence J Kotlikoff( Book )
9 editions published between 1988 and 1989 in English and Undetermined and held by 263 libraries worldwide
A study documented the continued backloading of pension benefits and the extent of retirement incentives by examining pension accrual in 1,183 U.S. defined benefit pension plans in 1979 and in one large Fortune 500 firm in 1984. Among the findings on the defined benefit pension plans were the following: many plans exhibit significant backloading; most plans generate substantial retirement incentives, often at the plan's age of early retirement; the extent of backloading and retirement incentives differs widely across firms; and early and normal retirement at age 55 is quite common among firms in the transportation industry. The analysis of the retirement response to the Fortune 500 company's pension plan yielded the following findings: most of the benefits accrued in the year the worker reached age 55, the plan's age of early retirement; the plan made pension accrual significantly lower after age 55, thus providing a very substantial incentive to retire at age 55 or shortly thereafter; and the pension plan increased the extent of early retirement between ages 55 and 60 by roughly one-third. (The document includes a 46-item reference list, 41 tables, 26 figures, and an index.) (Cml)
