When I did the math for myself I found that taking SS at 62 and investing the money (even at a 5% return in a bank CD)came out way better than any other scenario. The trick is to not spend the money, invest it, and pay the taxes out of earned income. Plus too many of my friends have been dieing before 65, they'll never see a dime.
