I think the important point is, in terms of planning when to start benefits etc, it's a fool's errand.

With a regular pension, once you are vested, you can look up the rules, know your benefits and expect them not to change.

Because SS is government benefit program, controlled by congress, they can change the rules on us anytime they want. As the did last year.

So good luck trying to figure out when to take benefits to max out your income from SS.
