"because of when Soc. Sec. kicks in for people my age)"

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

66 is the age for "full" Social Security but I understand you
have the option of a reduced payment still at 62 - and you have the option of collecting a higher payment if waiting until age 70.

Financial advisers tend to recommend waiting.
Folks who tend to read the obituaries tend to recommend sooner.

A $12 annual charge is not extreme - you figure the reporting
needs for an account would run about that amount.
