Are you getting everything you are entitled to from Social Security? PBS Newshour journalist Paul Solman was not. But after getting a tip from his economist friend Laurence Kotlikoff a few years ago, Solman collected nearly $50,000 in spousal benefits he didn't know were available to him. Solman and Kotlikoff have written a new book "Get What's Yours: The Secrets to Maxing Out Your Social Security," which explains how to optimize spousal benefits and offers other ways to get smarter about Social Security.

Guests:

Paul Solman, business and economics correspondent for PBS NewsHour and co-author of "Get What's Yours"

Laurence Kotlikoff, professor of economics at Boston University and co-author of "Get What's Yours"
