I am currently working but only making approximately $30000. I am 62. Is it wise to collect social security now or better to wait until I am 65..

How long to you intend to live and how badly do you need the money now?
If you start now, you will be about 81 before the total amount received would have been more had you waited.
You can go by your own state of health, and how long your parents were at death, if they died a natural death. Best wishes, Chris
