Grand Rapids, MI -- (SBWIRE) -- 09/06/2013 -- For those people who are too busy to stay on top of recent events in the world's economy, financial advisor Dennis Tubbergen lends a hand.

Tubbergen is a financial advisor, author, radio show host and CEO of PLP Advisors, LLC. Tubbergen gives brief updates when it comes to some of the latest significant events in U.S. and world economics and politics and how these events may impact the average American.

Whether people enjoy his monthly newsletter at or his blog at, Tubbergen can be counted on to share his viewpoints and opinions. On September 3, 2013 his blog was titled Part Two: Social Security Question and Answer Session.

"I’ve been discussing some common questions that many folks have when it comes to collecting Social Security benefits," began Tubbergen.

In this "Part Two" session, Tubbergen begins to talk about the strategy of filing for Social Security benefits and suspending as well as some of the rules for married couples when it comes to collecting Social Security benefits.

"Once you are collecting benefits from Social Security you can suspend your benefits provided you are at least as old as your normal retirement age," explained Tubbergen. "You can then reinstate your Social Security benefits at a later date and receive delayed retirement credits which are monthly increases to your benefit."

However, there are some issues to watch out for, such as being sure to pay your Part B Medicare premiums.

Tubbergen cautions that if you are married, you may also have the option to draw spousal benefits from Social Security or your own retirement benefits. The spousal benefit from Social Security is based upon the work and earnings record of your spouse. Choosing the right benefit at the right time can result in a significant increase in income over your lifetime in many cases.

"So, if you’re a married couple, how do you know how to collect your Social Security benefits?" asks Tubbergen. "This brief narrative is designed to give you an overview and offer some perspective when making that decision. Always seek the guidance of a qualified professional when making these important decisions."
