I spoke with a relative about his Social Security experience (and to get his Hurricane Sandy story-).

He worked with an actuary, who advised collecting SS asap after retirement. He & his wife did that and have no regrets. They're in their 70s now, receiving SS since age 62, his corporate pension since 55, and investment income since being laid off from his corporate job at 49 (he worked at a few jobs intermittently from 50 to 65 both for the health insurance and to spare ravaging the portfolio).

That's what I like--real-world data, and opinions, both professional and someone I know.
