    Christine Benz: Hi, I'm Christine Benz for Morningstar.com. Social Security claiming strategies can be devilishly complicated. Joining me to discuss some of the frequent mistakes that investors make in Social Security claiming is Phil Moeller, he is the co-author of a new book about Social Security called Get What's Yours . Phil, congratulations on the book. Thank you for being here. Philip Moeller: It's my pleasure, Christine. Benz: Let's talk about some of the key pitfalls.

    avoid deeming. And I would say even people who are steeped in Social Security decision-making may not have heard this term. So, let's talk about deeming--what it is and how it comes into play. Moeller: Again, when you take a benefit before full retirement age, which is 66 for people nearing retirement today, if you claim your retirement benefit before that age, under Social Security rules, you will also be deemed to be taking any other eligible benefits. So, for example, if you're eligible to take a spousal benefit, you would be taking both of those and Social Security will not pay you the full amount of each of those benefits. It will pay you an amount roughly equal to the
