  • Are retirees getting smarter about Social Security?

    More people are waiting longer to retire, and that's affecting when they claim Social Security benefits. While more than a third of workers still claim Social Security retirement benefits when they turn 62, the earliest age possible, a growing number are waiting until their mid-60s or later, according to a new study. "The good news is that more people are claiming retired-worker benefits at later ages, and this pattern is consistent with increased labor force participation at older ages and the rise in the average retirement age," Alicia Munnell, director of the Center for Retirement Research, and co-author Anqi Chen wrote in their study.

  • IS jihadists threaten ancient Palmyra ruins

    The Islamic State group seized Syria's Palmyra, reportedly giving it control of half of the country as UNESCO warned the destruction of the ancient city would be "an enormous loss to humanity". Experts said the capture of the 2,000-year-old metropolis leaves IS strongly placed to wrest control of more territory from Syria's government and comes days after it expanded its grip in Iraq. US President Barack Obama played down the developments as a tactical setback and denied the Washington-led coalition was "losing" to IS, but French President Francois Hollande said the world must act to stop the extremists and save Palmyra.
