SS at 62 is what makes sense if you are not employed. The amount you get roughly 1000 times the months will give you a total that you will find difficult to make up. If you invest the money foolishly you'll never catchup. 1000 times 36 months equals 36000 dollars What is the amount you get at 65?? Now how many months does it take you to make that back,remember you are still getting the 1000 plus three cost of living raises, compounding the 1000 into real money. You want the answer go to theSS office and you'll get a courteous no nonsense answer.
