To help ensure that seniors can enjoy their golden years in comfort, free from financial worries, Newsmax has put together a special report available only at MyBenefits511.com.

As disheartening as it may be, it’s no surprise that Americans 55 and older now account for 20 percent of all bankruptcies, with the majority due to medical and funeral expenses.

Retirees and near-retirees hoping to live out their “golden years” in comfort face daunting odds.

Consider these startling facts:

  • One out of every six elderly Americans is already living below the federal poverty line, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.
  • The average monthly Social Security benefit for retired workers is only $1,237.
  • Sixty percent of heads of households age 65 and older rely on Social Security benefits, which provide them with more income than any other source of retirement funding.
  • One-third of households end up completely dependent on Social Security.
  • A couple retiring this year at the age of 65 should have $240,000 on hand to cover medical expenses throughout their retirement.
But retirement doesn’t have to mean flirting with financial disaster.

For example, did you know that how you file for Social Security can dramatically change the amount of money you collect? One simple step could add up to $1,000 to your monthly payouts!

And other loopholes we found reveal 33 ways to get big savings on your healthcare.
