Is Working Longer the Best Retirement Strategy?

We’ve heard many say it — work longer and/or claim Social Security later. But is that really the optimal strategy? Perhaps not, says Brian O’Connor of Yahoo Finance in this piece. A number of key points are made in this article. They include: working longer is unrealistic for many; a financial advisor may be the best resource for any one person on deciding when to start benefits; Americans are notoriously terrible savers on their own; and only 5% of people delay Social Security until 70 for the max payout, though 13% nearing retirement say they will do so according to the Social Security Administration.
