In one of the earlier posts, it was suggested that collecting social security at 65 and continuing to work would be okay. However, as I understand it, the amount of social security goes up to a maximum at age 70. However, if I am over 65, making a little more than 50K, wouldn't it be better to defer taking SS payments until I am 70. There would then be no limit on earnings, and I would be collecting the maximum amount. I believe the amount is fixed according to the year you take it and would not increase, depending on earnings.
