And by the title, I don’t mean that I explain best. I can only try to do that. What I want to explain is that the Social Security Administration offers an online Benefit Eligibility Screening Tool (BEST) that allows you to find out what benefits for which you may be eligible.

BEST will screen for eligibility for Medicare, Social Security Disability, Social Security Retirement, Social Security Survivors’ Benefits, Special Veterans’ Benefits and Supplemental Security Income.

According to the Social Security Administration, it should only take 5 to 10 minutes to answer the questions. So before you buy that book about what you might qualify for, by the guy in the question-mark suit, try BEST.

Thanks for reading,
