Assuming that you're not still working and subject to the $14,160 annual earnings limitation on benefits, why wouldn't you take you're Social Security check on the day you're eligible?intercst From the link supplied* the benefit increases for me: 5% from age 62 to 63: then 6 2/3% every year from age 63 to age 66; then 8% a year until until age 70%. 1)Those increases in the benefit probably will outstrip the returns from my 70/30 portfolio. Especially as I predict more of the same level of returns as the past decade rather than the smoking returns of the 1990's.2)As one ages, it is an unknown factor how financially astute a person remains. So I will spend my retirement savings first & hold off tapping into SS. Yes I know there ain't no guarantee of a benefit. But I expect to receive something. http://www.ssa.gov/OACT/ProgData/ar_drc.html
