>>>Everyone else is in that middle grey area where 62 vs. 70 based on your life expectancy isn't much more than a coin toss,


Except for a huge chunk of Americans who work by necessity after age 62.

Unless they make less than the minimum to avoid a penalty is it crazy to take benefits early.

For others delaying SS benefits to full retirement age is a hedge against longevity.
