Goofyhoofy:Your table does not address one important point.For years 1 - 3 of the "take it at 62" scenario, you are not removing $18,000 each year from your savings/IRA/401K. It continues to grow if it is properly invested.For me, 62 vs 66 until I am dead at 86:62 @ $18,576 = $464,400 at 8666 @ $24,624 = $517,104 total payout at 86Leaving the $18,576 in my IRA each year for the 5 years with no other additions becomes $455,069 when I am 86 using 8% appreciation.$464K + $455K > $517K any day of the week.Genehttp://www.taylortel.net/~gdett2/
