Yeah but, what if you kick the bucket? I come from a long line of people who like to die early. In my family if you died in your mid 70's you had a long life. My mom died of stomach cancer at age 51 and my dad died of cardiomyopathy at age 65.

Not to mention I'm significantly overweight and have no interest in dieting and trying to lose weight and it probably drop at least a decade off my life (if not more).


Then I will have some money on the table and other beneficiaries of the program will have benefited. Course I'll be dead & have no use of that dinero.

I understand that, but you don't have to delay taking your SS benefit to take advantage of it. You can have your cake and eat it, too by using the Withdrawal of Application strategy.



I'll look at that option in 3 1/2 years. Things could change in that length of time.

I could earn a coupla % interest by putting the monthly benefit into a cd.
