Delaying gratification

Claiming Social Security as soon as you’re eligible might be the fastest track to a regular check in your early 60s, but the payouts are reduced if you begin earlier than your full retirement age. What’s more, benefits further increase for each year you delay claiming until you reach 70, so delaying claiming can lead to a bigger check down the road. We want to know how this is affecting your plans.
