So they have to administration they didn't think unemployment was was a concern. They had a broad themselves out to realize that the Trump administration well, first time then there in Trump comes up in this article about three quarters through the Trump administration. Initially speeding up economic growth as its top goal. The Federal Reserve for decades, made low and stable inflation. It's beacon previous administrations had given priority.

The Trump Administration.

That was a complete departure than two previous administrations, which gave priorities to rising home ownership. In other words, government programs to put people into homes they couldn't afford.

A New Study Says Money Really Can Buy Happiness? Not Exactly, Says the Author
"So alison what's up. Well bro as the old adage goes. Money can't buy happiness. I mean just look. At the twenty. Ten princeton study by economist angus deaton and psychologist daniel. Carlson they found that happiness goes up. The more you make put it plateaus once you get to about seventy five thousand in income doesn't matter how much you're gonna make after that. Your happiness just really doesn't improve that much the red pepper takeaways from this. Dare i say landmark. Study one being that once you have the basic necessities in life more doesn't make you much happier and the other takeaway being that the wealthier you are the more you compare yourself to the joneses and are ultimately left jealous and wanting to keep up. I mean look at richard corey. He owned one half of this whole town but was he happy. No now don't you feel better. So enjoy working in his factory but then warns matthew killingsworth had to come along with his study justice last month and restore that feeling of glueck schmierer's the germans have a word for feeling bad about the good fortune of others. Killingsworth collected one point seven million data points from more than thirty three thousand participants who provided in the moment snapshots of their feelings during daily life. So essentially it was an app it would ping them throughout the day and ask them. How are you feeling right now. And this measured what's called experienced wellness. He also asked people generally how happy they thought they were their overall happiness and apparently that's called evaluative being anyway. So what did he find. Did he confirm that. Once you look at people with income over seventy five thousand dollars happiness plateaus and you just don't get that same happy bang for your buck. No matter how much money you make well as it turns out you continue to get happier as your income rises and the study didn't find any sort of plateau and happiness after a certain level of income neither in evaluated or experienced wellbeing. Why is this well. The researcher believes that higher earners are happier in part because of an increased sense of control over their life to quote him. He says when you have more money you have more choices about how to live your life. You can likely see this. In the pandemic people living paycheck to paycheck who lose their job. Might need to take the first available job to stay afloat. Even if it's one they dislike able with a financial cushion can wait for one. That's a better fit across decisions. Big and small having more money gives a person more choices and a greater sense of autonomy and quote. So what's the lesson. go out there and make as much money as you can. Because your happiness will just keep skyrocketing actually no because the study also found that people who equate having money to success are actually kinda miserable. They often work long hours and are stressed out about their time. Whoops there goes your sense of autonomy ultimately the takeaway from the study is that money is just one factor happiness and while having money certainly beats not having money. It's ultimately about the sense of control power and autonomy that money affords you and a bunch of other factors too. I mean i'll bet. Richard cory didn't get a lot of hugs growing up so bro. Go hug

How to Rank on Page 1 of Google in 2021
"Today. We are going to talk about how to rank on. Page one of google in twenty twenty one. So okay get off. I mean look. We'll talk about page we've been talked about ranking number one as well so look for twenty twenty one the core web vitals that is going to be a big part of google's algorithm so it's having a great website experience making sure things are fast things are not broken kind of the basics. Just making sure that google is just trying to make sure that there's a framework for websites to follow to rank carnage. Want to help make you more successful because they do want to be indexing your content. Another thing that you should do if you wanna rank really well. This year is build les lames. I know this sounds crazy. Eric and i will do episode on this topic within the next week or so but build less links. So what we've seen is if you build too many links to fast your rankings. Don't move up as fast and they usually don't go up as high to people who are building at a much slower pace taking their time building higher calling links rowlings in both scenarios. You never wanna buy links. It's more so just people do ten of manual outreach and just try to bombard how many links again getting try to aim for rich anchor techs and i would tell you is do the opposite when you create content. Let it sit wait. A few months and then build natural high-quality very relevant -tated links and. Even if you just let trick lynn. What you'll find is that your rankings. Climate a much quicker pace all right under giving oldie but still relevant the skyscraper technique from back linko also known as brian. Deane but the idea here. Is that all of us ranking number one or page one there for a reason. So what conclusions. Can you draw by diagnosing. The top three results. And can you do something. That's ten times better than that. That's still something that works. It's the same thing with product craciun. You make something that's ten times better and you know you just keep iterating right. So let's use the tesla electric cars an example. I would say it's maybe. It's not a ted ex. Could be ten x. I mean. I love it as a car right but yeah i think it's a great car. I do think it's the best. It's the most pleasant experience i've ever had right so same deal here. That's why their stock is. There's a lot that goes into why their stock is so high. But you know that's one of the reasons it's just a great product and a great company so think about how your content. How can you make your content like a great product and when you are also optimizing trying to rank really high up. Keep in mind. eric mentioned. They're using user signals right so they have the core web vitals but some of these user signals that they're using is our the senior listing and or they can go down to the next one. I'm clicking on that so things get peeling titled tag appealing meta description can really help. Bolster your rankings. Things like adding in the year in there. We seem increase more. Click through rates based on data. That i got from eric from click flow also keeping it short into the point. Also helps increase clicks adding a meta description. I know sometimes you always see or not always in most cases you see a meta description each listening but it doesn't mean that each site has a meta description is more so google's pulling text from page but if you manually create a meta description you're more likely to get more clicks because he can pick what keywords earner but those are some things that you can do to increase your click throughs as well as evoking curiosity example. That is like the seven benefits at green tea number. Six will shock we. What's number six shock. Me i gotta click and just go look at number six yup lund thing. I'll add from my side is making sure that you're able to keep people on the page for a long time right. So what can you do. Maybe you can add a youtube video to it. Maybe you could add more content to it but dwell time is still important because it is. It's a very nice signal similar with you too. When you think about youtube they look at retention rates right. I mean they obviously want to the platform to show you more ads but you know in terms of ranking you. I mean google's core product is making sure they create a good search experience right. So they're gonna make you hard. They want good signals. Coming from your page. Neil and the last step and i know we can keep going on and on for this but we want to keep it short and to the point so that way you have action that you can creating is update your old content over a billion blogs tons of content way find his right less content but update your existing articles especially ones that already ranking the continue perform. Better if you see pages that are dipping in rankings. Update them look all the people rank above you and make contact better than i know. Eric mentioned the skyscraper technique. You don't have to go that above and beyond just making a little bit better than your competition really helps with your ranking when you make those changes and update your content rankings may not shoot up in the next few days or we but typically within thirty days. You should start seeing go back up
6 essential lessons for women leaders
"And goes ten years ago. When i became prime minister of australia i assume that at the start they would be a strong reaction to me. Being the first woman about it would obeyed over time. And then i would be treated the same. As savory out. The prime minister head bain was so wrong. That didn't happen the longer. I governed the more visible the sexism became. I don't want any other woman to be blindsided like that. That's why i'm so excited about working with you to help. Women get ready to lead in what is still a sexist world. I share that sense of excitement. After i was finance minister of nigeria was overwhelmed by the number of women who wanted me to be the mental. It is terrific that aspiring young women are keen to learn from those who have gone before. But they're still too few female role models especially women of color now. As a result of the work we have done together. I can offer everyone. Class standout lessons. That tabbies just of my own experience. What on the global research on women and leadership and the candidate sites of leading women one of the things to share. Is that this joy in being a leader in having the opportunity to put your values into action emphasizing. The positive makes a real difference to the power of role modeling if we only focus on the sexist negative experiences. Women may decide that being a latest. Sound so grim. They don't want to do it on the other hand if we pretend it so rosy and easy women and girls can be put off because they decide. Leadership is only for super women who never have any problems. We all have to get the balance right but in ghozi. It's impossible to talk about role models right now without asking you. How does it make you feel to see. Camera harris elected as vice president. I'm delighted it's important to the association of girls and women that they see role models. They can relate to vice president-elect terrace exactly that kind of role model particularly for girls and women of color and every woman who steps forward makes small space for the women will come next of course both of us know from and experiences that even win women get to the top unfortunately too much time and attention will be spent on what they looked like rather than what they do and say and ghozi for women. Is it still all about the head. Certainly julia. I laughed when hillary clinton said she envied by dress style and particularly my signature scuff. So i don't need to worry about my hair. Like many of women leaders have effectively adopted a uniform. a colorful one. it's african. it's me. I have developed my own style that i wear every dan. I don't vary from it. That has helped protect me from endless discussion of my appearance. It's helped me to get people to listen to my words not look at my clothes. Hillary told us she lost the equivalent of twenty four four days of campaign time in the two thousand sixteen election getting her hair and makeup done every day but actually contemporary problems for women leaders go far deeper than anything to do with looks at better. Warn now about to use the would. Many people would find rude. My favorite funny moment. He now travels was discussing resting bitch. Face with prime minister earner solberg of norway. the global research shows that if a man comes across strong and bishops. Even so faking. That's fine but if a woman does it in the reactions against her can be as visceral as revulsion or contain. They pretty mind bogglingly. Strong words happy. They certainly are women. Lee does talk about intuitively understanding that to be viewed as acceptable as a leader. They have to stay balanced on a tightrope between strength an empathy if they come across as too tough there viewed as hard unlikable but if they come across as too soft there seemed to be lacking the backbone needed to lead the problem. Is we still all have sexist stereotypes wearing in the back of our brains. I was portrayed as out of touch. Because i don't have children as even compared to a barren cow in the bush. Distant to be killed for hamburger means. That's horrible at you. Face that stereotype. While i was worried that people will think i couldn't do my job. My family was young. I enjoyed token to new zealand's prime minister justin that dan about experience as its second woman ever to have a child while being national leader. I was very taken by. Has saying she doesn't think she gets the work life balance right

Is chess an Esport?
"On this. Podcast we've said chess is definitely any sport it's so cool to see you know Gm ichuro streaming for tsm and playing chess and chess was invented. Today would definitely be any sport. you know. we've we've sort of back that narrative collectively. And then i saw this article and i'm like wait a second. Something's not right like this doesn't feel right to me as much as i believed streaming of chest feels like a little bit of any sport is magnus carlsen is he. The top e sports earner is this really as good for the sports industry as a whole to sort of make this kind of call Or are we sort of now trying to include too much in the definition and we only hurt ourselves like. Where are you guys on that on that on. That thought lindsey. I'll let you start okay. I talked about this on twitter a little bit earlier. I think it's great. So one of the things about these lists especially. I was looking at the top ten team earnings to i mean the amount of potential earnings that are out there are just around fifteen to twenty percent of what they were last year. Because of the pandemic so part of it is that chest was super easily translatable in a pandemic near still able to hold tournaments. It's still very familiar. People still wanted to watch it whereas some other tournaments games. Whatever with the line element. It's not as exciting. So we'll see his carries over into next year that would be an interesting trend but the other part is that. I still don't think it's necessarily a bad thing for this is a little bit. I mean this is where it gets a little bit to differentiate between these sports gaming and top earning streamers as top running eastwards competitive on and the the delineation between all of those is really murky unclear. Obviously he's not the most popular Twit streamer and i wouldn't expect him to have the most money made off of that or most money made off of endorsements or whatever. So when i look at it from that lens. I don't think it's a bad thing that he's leading in this. Very narrow niche category called e sports. Where we're only looking at tournament winnings that have been decimated during a pandemic so but like even non pandemic like even. If you go back he probably still would have made the top ten and half a million dollars. You're weirdo doda to the winning team. Each guy makes you know couple of million bucks. He still would be up there. And i think the bigger question is you know everyone seems gung ho to call chesini sport right but then you see a list. At least i saw list like this. And i go wait. A second at maybe. Have we gone too fast. Here right like manx. Carlson to me has never been an east sports competitor right and so it started trending downwards though if people kind of us chess has an introductory way of getting into it because it is familiar international and then got for like league of legends. Like watching chess. Yeah i i. I very much think that that kind of strategy play that people get into is easily transferable to other games and that it could be a way of just doing that choices. I mean just. Chess has the advantage of longevity. It's been around for thousands of ears. So i don't think it's a bad thing right now. Maybe in ten years. I would think that this would be a bad trend. Maybe even five years but for right now this year it's point even stronger. I feel like we're using chess at this more rate like being used in the dirty version of the word right like we're using it for sorta like clout right because it's cool to have chess as an e sport and chest is massively popular internationally right and then as soon as as soon as you have. Magnus carlsen at the top of the list. Everyone goes oh. No no not any sport like i feel like we're using it a little bit and chris brings up a good point here. Jeff maybe you want to comment on like when do we call poker any sport. Yeah that's a good point. You got a slippery slope at some point. Can you call you know anything. That's being played electric. You know it's just this other point at some point. Can you just call anything you play like you know like if we're flipping a coin and betting on the outcome is that an e sport if it's filmed than like you're in one place at other place i don't know

Just What is Going on at the Esports Stadium Arlington?
"Sports stadium in Arlington is the largest Esports arena in North America this week. They laid off almost all their employees including former president. Jonathan Ogden Josh. Whose been at the Helm of the company for the past few years made it clear. There was plenty of discontent behind the scenes. He tweeted quote would love to talk about what's happened a t Sports stadium and my fears what will happen with the new Direction off all the details but need to tread lightly from a legal perspective and quote in other tweets. He makes it even more clear that the exit wasn't pretty and that the new leadership represents a drastic change from the team driving the stage over the last few years. The new president will be luke Bauer Bauer doesn't have much experience in E Sports at all. Jacob Wolfe tweeted yesterday quote Bauer is a 2020 University of North Palm. Just graduate and Linkedin shows experience running a pressure washing company power is a friend of Luke lights means and quote. Luke is the other figure involved with the company and he's a bit controversial Thousand Years. Apparently the grandson of Ray Davis a majority shareholder of the Texas Rangers who helped launch the venue according to Woolf the current CEO of Esports Arena Arlington is Neil Lyman a minority shareholder for the Rangers. And if that name doesn't ring a bell, here's a refresher Infiniti sports and entertainment. That's the company that bought optic gaming back in 2017 and made an absolute mess of it before selling it off to a mortal's about two years later. Now, it seems like Neil is taking another popular is Esports institution run by a gaming veteran and moving it in a direction of wage earner nepotism Bauer didn't interview with Kevin hit at the Esports Observer, which I will link below in it hit questions Bauer about an odd tweet from Luke leitzman lights been again appears to be Bridge between Bauer and the Texas Rangers owners who are making the decisions here lights been tweeted and then deleted e Sports Stadium Arlington will not at any time require requests or inquire about the vaccination record of anyone. I will be buried in the ground before this changes. That's just an odd statement to make from a public health perspective, especially as venues have been one of the hardest-hit industries by the covid-19. Demek Bauer claims lights been does not have the authority to make that call but his entire page was wild with feared claims. And now as I searched for it today does not exist. So weitzman's actual role at the company is not clear whatsoever. Jonathan quotes who did the article and said there is much much more to this and is in no way being transcribed fully booked. It's not a fault of hit. Of course. It's a fault of Bauer who just is not going to provide the full situation. We likely won't know the full story until Jonathan's NDA expires, but for now given meals poor history. Use words to say the least. We certainly aren't going to give him the benefit of the doubt here.
Will giving Happy the elephant human rights actually make her happy?
"Elephant at the Bronx Zoo named Happy the elephant, All right, who was in court last week? Well, actually not in court because they didn't bring happy into the courtroom, But there was a group called the Nonhuman Rights Project. That brought a lawsuit against the city of New York actually state of New York to have happy declared a person to give happy personhood. 49 year old female Asian elephants been living by herself in conditions that have well they're not wonderful to say the least. And so here, the appeals court determining whether animals or people pita Has been making these claims and filing lawsuits for years. Pita you know that bread that Mideast earner so eat? No, no, the people for the ethical treatment of animals. I always get the two confused and There. It's case after case that's filed last time. I think they did one with a chimpanzee, arguing that the genetics of chimpanzees and humans are so close. They should be. They should be both considered human beings and the court said Now I don't think so. And then there's been some really crazy ones that Richard the durable, for example, was once The plaintiff in a lawsuit to be declared A person and so here, the justices looking at this and they're actually looking. There was an appeals court decision. The loss course low record and kicked it up, and I guess the court wanted to hear it. Because the appeals court could say no S o. The judges were a little skeptical, and one of the joint justices said. Isn't this better suited for the Legislature to act on legislatures can actually deem animals People, uh, pursuant to a legislative act now that if that holds up in court, no one knows, But if anybody's gonna do, it's gonna be the Legislature and then the Justice said, I'm not so sure we're equipped to even handle these kinds of matters. And what the group argued is that happy's living conditions at the Bronx Zoo was effectively solitary confinement and arguing she's been mistreated. Now, think about this for a moment. And there's some practical aspects of this because right now animals you own their property. It's that simple. You buy. You sell animals and your that's it now. What if the animals were people? I mean, think about this legally. This is not one of those. He What if animals were people, Then we start to, you know, flying off on fantasies? No. Legally if animals repeated were people you can't own a dog. You're not allowed to own people. They call it slavery Abraham Lincoln and 14th amendment in all that stuff, Actually 13th amendment and so it has been an ongoing fight. So practically speaking, Of course, there's nowhere to go with that aunt. Legally speaking, there's nowhere to go with that, although do you remember Mitt Romney during the run for the presidency, he said. Corporations are people. And that may have cost him the race. He was nailed for that well, corporations are people for purposes of shielding liability. That's what corporations are about. They are an entity. They're not people. But they have Ah, lot of the same shields. And so they've bean s o the animal rights people of this you using that a lot Hey of corporations to be Dean people than certainly non humans, animals, hamsters, durables so happy the elefant. Can be named people. So anyway, of course, is going to go no place, but it's just kind of fun, man. I love these lawsuits.

If your credit standing is solid, you may well be looking at a rate somewhere in the twos. One other thing you said you're in a thirty year.

"When you see that data on initial jobless claims, the US Department of Labor. Put Out something that I saw in the financial press that shows the average number of initial claims for unemployment. And a typical week in recent times, and then shows what they been since corona virus really got on people's radar back in March and it peaked in April with people being laid off and seeking unemployment in his trended down since late April every single week, the number of initial claims for unemployment. Has Gotten smaller and smaller, which is definitely good news, but the overall picture remains very very tough, because we have somewhere around twenty one million people who are receiving unemployment compensation plus an unknown number of millions who've had trouble still applying. And getting unemployment, compensation, typically people who are GIG workers, self employed independent contractors have still been having difficulty getting their unemployment compensation, so we have. A clear tough road ahead. and. Road is made more difficult because of the way spending patterns have changed, there's multiple sources of data both private, and from federal data that show that spending by the top quarter of income earners in the United States has collapsed the irony of this. Is overwhelmingly people who are in the top quarter of incomes in the US. Are People who can work from home or remotely? And generally have kept their jobs overwhelmingly. And they account for two thirds of the total decline in spending in the United, states. Since, we got into the whole corona virus cycle. So this is going to make it more difficult for the economy to return and the question may be. Why are the top quarter of income earners? Not spending any money, because they've still got their jobs, they're jobs seem okay. Everything seems other than that. They're not living life like really. that. They're not spending so typically. They're not spending because this is one of the great ironies. Of Life. People who are having to go to work? Physical locations. And have been at more risk of losing their jobs. Have continued to spend at normal levels. And there are people that have been in harm's way much more likely to be in harm's way. The higher income earners who were generally not in harm's way. Seem to be as a general rule, more frightened of corona virus and are not out, spending. And so until. People gained confidence that Corona virus is not going to be a life threatening. Or terminal illness for them. There's going to be less spending by higher income individuals. Who this is the punchline. Most higher income earning individuals are. Older. And risk from dying from Corona virus, except for people who have. Severe Pre existing conditions of certain types. The mortality risk doesn't really increase till after age fifty. So, the people who have so impacted the economy by reducing spending. OR ON SPENDING strike because they're concerned with the consequences to their lives of getting virus. So that means we have to come up with effective means of holding down the number of infections, effectively treating the infections that people do get. Or hopefully coming up with a vaccine, but until those things happen in combination, or even any of the three scenarios will get people more confident and spending again.

But I don't know what's going on in Africa, but seems like a lot of corruption. I don't know how much of that is on us. I don't know what we're supposed to do. I feel like there's a lot of bad nations out there. There's some good ones and we would rank in the upper percentile of those, but I don't know if you're asking for something else that doesn't really exist, like, hey, a perfect nation with no history of slavery or pression or getting Volva conflicts that were based on this or money or land, or my or whatever. What are you looking for and then where does this exist and who you compare to what? What she say? They never. We could always do more. Says she who pays no taxes. I we have enough, why can't we give them? You know, it's like, what do you mean? We don't pay taxes. The always that too. It's an interesting, it's interesting mindset. The people don't pay tax want us to be generous. Seems like he shouldn't get vote in the generosity department when you don't, there's, there's if everyone did what you did, there'd be no nothing to be generous with. Yeah, I'd have no pot to to give them pulled money out of resources out. It's weird. I don't know if it's overcompensation for life of not contributing. Is that what it is? I think it is. She feels like a victim share victims. Okay. Yeah, she can't thinking in terms of what should be done or how to do it. I guess going all people in the thorny victimizing her guests. Her and Peter Fonda are going to the grave with that. We're in this stuff gets into the eighties like still angry, still distrustful. Like, I don't know. This is nations giving you a pretty good life sort of chose not to work. And here we are one piece. You know, went to the doctor, got insurance, took care of that came back.

So yesterday we're talking about things and we're trying to figure out. Adults and educated adults and people over forty and saying, things that seemed incongruous. Right. And what do they mean? And then what are they saying? And how does it work famously. I had one of my wife's friends, very animated few weeks back about Matt. Damon should shut his mouth and has like, well, all he said was that. Whatever Al Franken did wasn't shouldn't be confused with what Harvey Weinstein was doing. And that seems to be a pretty sober statement to me. I don't care. He should shut up. I should always doings really pointing out the obvious and I, I actually agree with him. Well, you know what? We got enough problems that you open your mouth, shut up. You know, like just shut up. You don't get to weigh in on this, but he's saying as his so stupid. Just shut up. He doesn't know what he's saying die. Think he knows exactly what he's saying. Sing check. Same thing. Everyone is thinking. I don't get it, they're, they're, they're 'cause will eat itself if they don't have some due process to it and distinguish Harvey Weinstein from say, Chris Hardwick now drew shut up. Now what you're saying, Chris was exonerated. Bush shut up. And so thank God for AMC who looked at this dispassionately. The hired attorney look at it very carefully and lo and behold, Chris had no liability is not let him off that easily gut. Right. Seriously. No, she's not. And that's bad for me too. Yes, because it needs to be able to distinguish less moon vests as being investigated, and you know, investigate fine, but have no process in it investigate all white guys with Asian wise while you're at it, there's something going on they like a certain Brita woman. Oh, yeah. Women. X. certain attitudes comes off days. That's my belief. Okay. I don't blame. Don't get me wrong. Do not get me wrong. A fan of this guy's just say they all need to be investing understand every male, Asian wife in less. You met her in the military. And then I'll give you a Pat and use a superior officer. You just have to be in a land that we. Jeez, okay. She's war arrive past this time. But next time I'm not going to generate. But anyway, I think we need to point it organizations like AMC and applaud them for doing the right thing for stepping pussies Asiana fired him in the first place without do agree with you, but at least they they reverse course and the fresh, the cowards that just just automatically like Netflix cowardly fires, people all the time for stuff like that. And this is that's cowardice. That's not. That's not a a moral position. It's cowardice lamb, see, did the same thing. They they, they got some backlash and probably wanted to good ever as long as the right. Do the right thing. They fired his ass without getting all the information. They went back and revisited it because I think there's going to be a lot of wrongful termination, lawsuits going on. There's a guy called the tennis matches who said, there's a guerrilla fact Serena Williams or something. They fired his ass and he's he's suing ESPN. Now he's saying Carrillo tactics, not gorilla the animal, and it's commonly used phrase and they're gonna have some liability because you can't just fire every this wrongful termination. Yeah, catches fire everybody willy nilly, especially when there's been no process. So I think they're, they're covering themselves well, the file either way. Okay. All right. Anyway, telling you guys yesterday, adults, adults to say things trying to trying to figure out what it means or how it works..

"The proper payment of survivor benefits back in two thousand seventeen there was a report that they were criticized for not awarding survivor benefits soon enough now when you say soon enough does that mean you applied for it and had to wait six months to get it and then they didn't pay you what you were owed i don't know what that means i don't know what that means but anyway understand something folks that if you are entitled to a survivor benefit and your own benefit but you haven't applied for your own so you you've only been receiving maybe your spouses you know benefit the spouse passes away and they offer you a survivor benefit it's in your best interest more than likely to say alright pay me only the survivor benefit and do not touch my own i want my own to grow as large as it can't now but unfortunately like anything else in strategy and planning the answer still is depends because it depends on how big your benefit is we've seen big discrepancies between a survivor benefit maybe you're the lesser wage earner your spouse was the high wage earner they're going to have a benefit of twenty seven hundred dollars a month with their full retirement age but they haven't applied yet and your benefits only going to be eleven hundred a month well it may not be very best interest to take the survivor benefit early and leave us alone because yours is never going to catch up in the first place it's too big of a disparity even adding all the way up to age seventy your benefits only gonna grow in about eighteen hundred or so so it depends on where the benefits are your age now and what we're doing as far as how do we go about maximizing the use of the benefits you've paid dearly for yeah they found on this random sample the inspector general's report estimates that eleven thousand one hundred twenty three dually eligible surviving spouses would have been eligible for a higher monthly benefit amount and had they delayed their retirement application until age seventy of these the report the audit report estimates that they.
