A new study nevertheless finds that early claiming leads to a significant increase in the number of retirees living in poverty.

As usual, correlation doesn't mean causation. I would suspect many that retire early do so because they want to, instead of determining rationally whether they should.

I would speculate that the causation is the other way. Poverty may impel the early claiming SS.
