A case for claiming Social Security at 70
One of the other articles posted today makes a case for claiming Social Security benefits at age 62. In an interesting dichotomy, this article suggests that if you want to live a comfortable life in retirement, waiting until age 70 to retire is the best way to achieve it. Based upon a joint report by the Stanford Longevity Center and the Society of Actuaries, middle income retirees can best maximize their financial situation to age comfortably by working longer and waiting until a later age to claim Social Security. And the concept is pretty simple – continuing to work means less drain of your retirement savings and waiting to claim Social Security means a substantially larger benefit check. The net result is more money in retirement – key to aging comfortably. To read this article, appearing in the Palo Alto (CA) Mountain View Voice, click here.
