Hi, I'm new to this board. It was suggested I try here for answers to a SS question.
I have tried several SS benefit calculators in an effort to get an idea of future benefits. The results look OK but; they all ask the same question "what age will you retire". The choices are 62, 66, or 70. I always put 62 because thats when I want the benefit, but I plan to quit or reduce earnings at 55. Will the 7 years of reduced earning effect the benefit I am seeing from the calculators? Does anyone know of any links that might be helpful?

Thanks, mntman
