Huge Boost to Social Security pay – if you can wait for it
Just 3% of Social Security recipients wait until age 70 to begin benefits. That’s too bad according to nearly all the experts, as starting them at age 70 allows one to collect the absolute maximum monthly benefit. The benefit increase is substantial– 8% per year from full retirement age until age 70, a return nearly impossible to obtain guaranteed elsewhere. The return is less each year between 62 and full retirement age. Read the full piece by Maurie Backman on why it pays to wait here.
